'Dredd' Movie Star Karl Urban in Talks for 'Judge Dredd: Mega-City One' Series


The actor who played Judge Dredd in the 2012 movie might reprise his role in the upcoming live-action TV adaptation.

Karl Urban could return for "Judge Dredd: Mega-City One". The actor who played the titular hero in the 2012 movie "Dredd" is apparently in negotiations to reprise his role in the upcoming live-action series.

"We have had many conversations prior to this," producer Brian Jenkins told The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast. "He's also very busy, a full-time professional actor. So we're going to have some long and complicated conversations I would imagine, and we'll see where we go."

"It's too early to tell yet, but if we can use him and he's available to us, then I think that would be absolutely brilliant. There's always a possibility he will be busy, or that his schedule for other movies won't allow. Basically, we don't know at this stage."

"Mega-City One" will take place in "a future where the East Coast of the U.S. has become a crowded and crime-ridden megalopolis. The plan is to make the series an ensemble drama about a team of Judges - futuristic cops invested with the power to be judge, jury, and executioner - as they deal with the challenges the future-shocked 22nd century throws at them."

The character was originated by Sylvester Stallone in a 1995 movie before Karl Urban took over in the R-rated remake five years ago. Urban was seen in "Star Trek Beyond" and "Pete's Dragon" last year. He will next appear in "Thor: Ragnarok" due November 3. His other new movies include crime thriller "Hangman".
