Lena Headey is all scarred up in new image from Dredd
With so many other great looking films on the horizon, I forgot that a reboot of the JUDGE DREDD film entitled DREDD was going to be coming out this fall. It’s not really a film that excites me, but it’ll be fun to watch the fanboys critique and tear it apart. Since I never saw the original film with Sylvester Stallone, I don’t really have anything to compare the new DREDD film to. However, having GAME OF THRONES star Lena Headey on board is something to look forward to because I did love GAME OF THRONES as well as 300.
DREDD is being directed by Pete Travis from a script written by Alex Garland and takes place in a futuristic city that is so violent the police have the authority to act as judge, jury and executioner. DREDD stars Karl Urban, Lena Headey, Olivia Thirby and Langley Kirkwood. The film is set for a fall release on September 21st, 2012.
I actually think I’m most interested to see Lena Headey in DREDD as Ma-Ma. Lena Headey has had a pretty decent career and she plays such a great bad guy. Seriously, if you haven’t seen her as Cersei Lannister in GAME OF THRONES you’re missing out. Actually, if you haven’t watched GAME OF THRONES you probably need to remedy that this weekend. That HBO show has become a huge part of pop culture references and not watching it will leave you in the dark. That’s just not good for anyone’s self-esteem. (Kinopoisk)
