Just yesterday it was rumored that Karl Urban was offered to play Judge Dredd and I can confirm that that’s true.

When I confronted Urban at the end of Red press conference and asked him about this, he didn’t seem surprised at all. First he gave a big laugh as he was expecting the question, but then, surprisingly, he actually talked a bit about it.

To hear exactly what the actor/Judge Dredd fan had to say about possibly taking the role, click after the jump. 

First, Urban stated it’s true that he had been offered the role,

“[Laughs] Good question. Yeah, I can’t say too much about it, but I have been offered the role and we’ve been having discussions. We’re working on it.”

Quickly after that, I asked if Urban saw some of the excellent concept art they’ve been working on, “Yeah, it’s phenomenal. I’ve been reading Dredd in one form or another for twenty-five years.”

Lastly, when I asked about what comics they’re drawing from he couldn’t say specifically, but what he did end on telling me was, “I am the law.”

While something could happen and derail the plans of an Urban starring Judge Dredd, lets hope that’s not the case. Urban seemed passionate about it and said himself he’s a Dredd fan. Lets hope this comes to fruition sooner rather than later.
