Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby in new photos from Dredd
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Some new photos have been published in Empire magazine for the upcoming remake DREDD. Directed by Pete Travis and starring Karl Urban, Lena Headey, Olivia Thirlby and Langley Kirkwood, the film is based in a violent and futuristic city where the police have the authority to act as the judge, jury and executioner. This is of course a remake of the 1995 film JUDGE DREDD starring Sylvester Stallone, but by the images below this film looks to be a little more gritty and stylistic.
I’m still not sure about this film but I’m starting to warm up to it because of Karl Urban. I think it was that LORD OF THE RINGS marathon that did it for me (you know because he played Eomer) as did his performance in STAR TREK. I’m going to have to keep an eye on DREDD, it may not be one I go to the theater to see, but I’ll definitely look for it on Blu-ray.
