Star Trek‘s Karl Urban is expected to be offered the role of Judge Dredd in Pete Travis’s gritty 3D take on the hanging judge. But I think the bigger story is that an actor would want to play Judge Dredd. I’m just playing. If early buzz is correct, Travis’s take will wash the taste of Stallone’s Dredd out of our mouths for good. And I, for one, am all for getting that zesty comingling of poop and piña colada off my tastebuds.
Of course, anything can happen at this point but I think Urban would be a solid choice for the role. I would normally suggest Ron Perlman but science hasn’t been able to craft a helmet large enough yet. Maybe someday when technology catches up to imagination. (Bleeding Cool)
