Lena Headey, television’s Sarah Connor from “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” has been cast as Madeline Madrigal AKA Ma-Ma, the main villain in the upcoming “Judge Dredd” film staring Karl Urban. Headey is a good actresses who I believe can play a believable villain and is a solid addition to the cast.
“Judge Dredd” is directed by Pete Travis and pre-production for the film began in August at Cape Town Film Studios in South Africa. Tentatively, “Judge Dredd” is scheduled to be released in 2012.
Here’s the official film synopsis:
DREDD takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Pete Travis bring DREDD to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.
