The first photo of Karl Urban as Judge Dredd in Dredd (2012) has been released. Directed by Pete Travis,  co-starring Olivia Thirlby, and with a script from Alex Garland, the film has only been shooting for a little while. I have to admit I was worried there but Judge Dredd looks like Judge Dredd. The fact that screenwriter for 28 Days Later and Sunshine wrote the script for this film makes me feel a lot better about how this film will turn out as well. Official film synopsis:

DREDD takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring DREDD to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.

  • Once again Hollywood fails to understand Judge Dredd. Besides setting it the US, they opt for a simplistic story to make it easier to film. At least the Stallone version dared to explore the world of Judge Dredd. It stunk, but was exploratory.

  • The story might be simple on paper. What you see on scene might be different.
