Here’s your first look at actor Karl Urban dressed as Judge Dredd. The image gives us our first glimpse of not only Urban in costume, but also the entire get up, gun, helmet and pissed off look and all.
Based on John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s ultraviolent judge, jury and executioner, the film has a relatively small $40~ million dollar budget and will be directed by Pete Travis (Vantage Point).
While I have some disdain for the costume (would I be stoned if I thought Sylvester Stallone looked better as Dredd??) this is a promising start and Urban is a fine actor.
“Judge Dredd” is expected to be shot in 3D and will be distributed by Lionsgate here in the US. No release date has been set.
