DREDD Update: Release Date Set And A New Pic Of Karl Urban As Judge Dredd!

Here's an official image of Karl Urban as Judge Dredd in the Lionsgate reboot of old Stallone SciFier. Though it is much clearer than previous looks at Karl as Dredd, it is extremely dark - and it must be by design. I actually like the November photo much better, though the resolution is off. If you want a closer look at the helmet itself (as Urban will NOT be taking it off for the movie), click here.

I have always loved the premise for Judge Dredd from day one, but Stallone's take on it was not up to par for me. Really hoping for something special here with Urban and his director Pete Travis (Vantage Point). The closer to the original comic, the better.

Here's the storyline:
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 Peter 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.

DREDD is slated for release on September 21, 2012. For all of our DREDD coverage, click here.
