They misspelled “dread,” but the more I think about it, the more I think that may have been intentional.

Duncan Jones Pussied Out Of ‘Superman’
Monday, January 24 by

‘Moon’ helped rocket Duncan Jones to the top of many best director lists. It was only natural that the offers would come rolling in. Including offers that Jones was too plain chicken to accept.

First Peek at Karl Urban as Judge ‘Dredd’
Saturday, November 20 by

Dredd’s suit is definitely more leathery than Sly’s in the 1995 Judge Dredd. Also, what do you guys think of Urban, mainly around the mouth area? Is he rocking the right amount of stumble?

Olivia Thirlby To Shadow ‘Judge Dredd’
Friday, September 3 by

Olivia Thirlby, 2008's It Girl (non-Kat Dennings version), will be joining Karl Urban when he shoves his gavel up bad guys' butts in the Judge Dredd reboot. Thirlby is best known for her turns in Juno and The Wackness. It looks like she's attempting to break into bigger, less-shoe gazey projects between this and The Darkest Hour. In other words, momma wants a pool.
For Dredd, she will play a young telepath who shadows Dredd on his beat. C'mon, do you really need to read minds to know where he's sticking that gavel? (Up butts.) (Variety)

Karl Urban Officially For Reals Judge Dredd
Friday, August 13 by

"Ank ooo or isss onor."
Karl Urban was offered the role of Judge Dredd a few weeks ago, and now he's officially said, "Sure, why the hell not." The film's producers Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich are determined to make this new adaptation not suck like the Stallone one did:
“The main thing about Dredd is that it’s a fantastic comic that was completely messed up 20 years ago," said Macdonald. "Our idea is to make a very hard, R-rated, gritty, realistic movie of Dredd in Megacity, so we’ve got to get the tone right. He’s not going to take off his helmet. His bike is going to feel real. He’s going to hit people and it’s going to feel real."
No word yet if director Pete Travis will bother developing tactile technology to literally punch audience members in the face. It seems like the next step in total entertainment immersion, but some people just aren't ready to REALLY watch movies. (Empire)

Karl Urban May Be Sentenced To ‘Judge Dredd’
Thursday, July 22 by

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)

Now This Is Happening: ‘Judge Dredd 3D’
Tuesday, May 11 by

If you print this out and tape it to your t-shirt, you will get so laid.Pete Travis is ready to fill the 3D Judge Dredd-shaped hole in our lives. Deadline reports that the Vantage Point director has signed on with DNA Films to bring Judge Joe Dredd back to the big screen, and they'll be looking to secure distribution at Cannes.This is good news for two reasons. A) It can't be worse than the confusing mish-mash that was Sylvester Stallone's version. 2) There's no studio involved to muck up the story. There's no word how faithful the film will stay to the comic series but Alex Garland (Sunshine) is attached to script.  I'd like to see a scene where Dredd has his own syndicated courtroom show, and punishes deadbeat roommates to the harshest extremes of the law. Please get on this "Robot Chicken." If you haven't already.
