Karl Urban gives an update on Dredd

IGN has recently spoken to Karl Urban who is currently promoting his new film ‘Red’ about the status of the previously announced Judge Dredd film. Urban told IGN that the script is strong and things are on track in terms of casting, Pete Travis is still attached to direct and they expect to start shooting in about two months.

With the filming scheduled to begin in that time frame we should see some more casting news very soon. It sounds as though the film is going for a more gritty, edgy, violent film than the previous release (starring Sylvester Stallone), this seems to be a popular trend in movies at the moment and for a character like Judge Dredd, its seems the most appropriate direction to take given the source material.

You can read the full comments at the link above, Karl Urban will next appear in the film ‘Red’ which is due to be released on the 28th October, in the mean time have a look at the trailer here.

Leith spent most of his formative years growing up on the coastal fringes of Western Australia without a cinema in sight. There he grew up on the wonders of home rentals before relocating to Perth and gaining access to a proper cinematic experience just in time for the Star Wars Special Edition re-releases. From there Leith's love of movies expanded to volunteering on a Star Wars fan film, reviewing films, writing about film news, and attending film and pop-culture related conventions on the other side of the world. Leith's favourite films are too many to mention but all start with the Star Wars saga, Back to the Future, the Dark Knight trilogy, Indiana Jones, Lord of the Rings and all things Kevin Smith. With an insatiable appetite for all things pop-culture related Leith also has an unhealthy addiction to the world of comics and can often be found buried under a pile of unread back issues madly trying to catch up on a number of titles coming out from mostly DC and Darkhorse.
