Make No "Bones" About It. Karl Urban Wants To Play Dredd Again
Way back when, we told you about a potential Judge Dredd TV series, Mega-City One. Well, things got even more exciting a couple of months later when the man himself, Karl Urban, said he had some talks to star in the show.
Frickin' sweet, I know. Sadly, there has been ZERO word on this show since then. However, this lack of news hasn't dissuaded the last man to play the judge. from expressing his desire to return to the role.
While speaking at Trekonderoga, the star of a ridiculous amount of iconic franchises, expressed his interest in the project. Should it ever happen.
Shit. That's a bummer given how utterly fantastic he was a the Judge in 2012's Dredd. And considering what the plot of the series will be, not including Urban would be quite a disappointment.
Let's hope the producers are paying attention, and they tap Karl Urban for a return. I would absolutely love to see him back as Judge Dredd. If you've only seen the 1995 lump of poo that is Judge Dredd starring Sylvester Stallone and Rob Schneider, do yourselves a favor and give 2012's Dredd a go.
From top to bottom, 2012's Dredd is an amazing film and features some fantastic FX, breathtaking visuals and none other than Cersei Lannister herself, the great Lena Headey as Ma-Ma; a psychotic, drug-dealing kingpin. It's brilliant.
Mega-City One is still looking for a home and according to rumor, it's a strong possibility this one goes to a streaming service. More as it develops.
