Karl Urban lined up to play Judge Dredd?
Could Karl Urban’s chin be about to get a fresh injection of fame? Rumours suggest that he is the man to bring Judge Dredd back to the big screen….
It's due to be heading into production later this year, and now the planned cinematic reboot of Judge Dredd may just have found its leading man.
According to rumours and word uncovered at Bleeding Cool, Karl Urban - who so memorably inhabited the role of McCoy in JJ Abrams' Star Trek reboot - is the man set to pull on the helmet. Furthermore, unlike the Sylvester Stallone-Danny Cannon movie of the mid 90s, that helmet will stay firmly on his head.
The new film is being directed by Pete Travis, the man behind Vantage Point. And the script has been written by Alex Garland.
The film is currently looking set for release in 2012, and it will, as you might already know, be in 3D.
Here's the full story over at Bleeding Cool.
