Dredd Mega-City One Set Photos and a Casting Call have been released. Pete Travis‘s Dredd (2012) stars Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby. We previously posted the Dredd (2012): Karl Urban’s Judge Dredd First Photo. Dredd is currently shooting in Cape Town, South Africa. In the photos, we see Mega-City One trucks and a sign that threatens “iso-cube detention”. The vehicles are grounded in reality this time around and not ridiculous looking like in Stallone’s Judge Dredd.
