Back in 2012, Dredd was the sleeper-hit action movie none of us knew we wanted. Sure, it seemed like just another phoned in action-flick, but director Pete Travis took the campy premise to amazing heights with solid execution (heh) of the ultra-violent action, simple story and fun characters. Yet another reason people loved Dredd was for it’s leading actor, Karl Urban. Urban’s scowling face (or just his jaw), gruff delivery of dialogue, and large presence on screen brought Judge Dredd to life.
So, when IM Global and Rebellion started working the TV Series Judge Dredd: Mega-City One, fans asked: Will Urban return? The answer could be a yes.
In an interview with TrekMovie, Urban divulged that he is in talks with the producers of Mega City One about reprising his role as Judge Dredd,
I am in discussions with them about that. I told them that if they write the material and give Dredd something to do and give him a function, I will be there. I would love to.
The series was only announced in May, so we probably won’t see any new developments for some time. Still, Urban’s interest is a significant boon for the show, and it seems Urban would only join the project if it looked promising to him. If so, Urban may well be the judge of whether the show is a worthwhile watch.
