I mentioned this last month, but now it's official: the producers of the new remake of "Judge Dredd" have confirmed that they have signed Karl Urban to take the lead role. They also said that their plan is to make "a very hard, R-rated, gritty, realistic movie of Dredd in Megacity". As you know "Judge Dredd" is set in a futuristic world filled with violence, and the main character is empowered to act as judge, jury and executioner. One of the most underrated actors out there, Karl Urban has given many charismatic performances so far: he was brave Eomer of Rohan in "Lord of the Rings", he was Dr. McCoy in "Star Trek", the villain in "The Chronicles of Riddick"... We will also watch him in the sequel to "Star Trek" and in the sf vampire adventure "Priest" with Paul Bettany.
