Karl Urban's Judge Dredd: First Look

Posted by Grey Saturday, November 20, 2010

Can Karl Urban be the Law of Mega-City One? You decide.

Thankfully unrelated to the 1995 farce of an adaptation of UK's favorite comic hero, Judge Dredd, directed by Danny Cannon and starring Sylvester Stallone as the eponymous character, the new film, directed by Pete Travis (director of 2008's Vantage Point) from a script by Alex Garland (renowned writer of 28 Days Later, Sunshine), will simply be known as "Dredd".

The plot synopsis, courtesy of Slash Film:

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.

Withput further ado, take a first look at Karl Urban's portrayal of comicdom's favorite judge... and jury, and executioner, Dredd.

Jock, the British artist best known for his work on Vertigo's The Loser (yeah, that movie), and his upcoming gig in a collaboration with writer Scott Snyder, in Detective Comics, is the concept artist behind the film. Check out these cool concept arts right after the jump.
