Karl Urban Talks Judge Dredd: Mega-City One; Will He Reprise the Role?


It still sucks that we won’t be getting a proper sequel to the criminally underrated fan favorite Dredd, but hey, the series “Judge Dredd: Mega-City One” may just scratch all of them nasty itches. But what of Karl Urban who’s been lobbying for a sequel for many years?

I am in discussions with them about that,” Urban revealed to the crowd at a “Star Trek” Las Vegas Convention as reported by ComicBook.com. “I told them that if they write the material and give Dredd something to do and give him a function, I will be there. I would love to.


“Judge Dredd: Mega-City One” will follow a group of Judges and the challenges they face in Mega-City One, a megapolis that encompasses much of the United States Eastern Coast.

IM Global president Mark Stern stated, “This is one of those seminal sci-fi properties that seems to only become and more relevant with age. Not only is it a rich world with biting social commentary, but it’s also fun as hell! As a fan of the comics and both films, it’s a dream come true to be able to work with Jason and Chris [Kingsley] in adapting this for television.

Jason and Chris Kingsley, the owners of Rebellion, add, “We’re very excited to be beginning the journey to get more of Judge Dredd’s Mega-City One on the television screen. Thanks to the legions of fans who have kept up pressure on social media, and a lot of background work and enthusiasm, we aim to make a big budget production that will satisfy both our vast comics audience and the even greater general screen-watching public.

Stay tuned for more as it comes.
