I also think that the Stallone film got a lot right, my biggest issue with it has always been Stallone himself as Dredd.

Regarding this new one I think getting a star to play him will be a mistake unless they can transcend their image and go the whole film wearing the helmet. Brad Pitt is a superstar who takes risks with his career but if someone like Pitt played Dredd then you'd only be seeing the actor and not the character. Karl Urban I still think is a great choice but I also keep seeing Hugo Weaving in the role. Am I nuts or could he make a good Dredd?


Hmmm it really is a tough one as to who should actually the play the great man of the law but I stick to what I said earlier about not having him as the main character but possibly have a rookie or a PSI Judge. I dont know how non-Dredd fans would react to a character who never takes off his helmet.

Sorry Marwood but Hugo is a non starter for me too,thing is being a life long Dredd fan i can't think of anyone to play Dredd at all.None of the names i've read about work,the guy has to be the most imposing badass on earth and none of the current hollywood/indie crowd have that look,i just hope that who ever gets the role has.He's not just a Judge he's THE Judge.

Yeah, I think it's an odd thing to try to cast. Some buff meat-head would be wrong and someone skinny like Weaving would be wrong too (another reason he'd be wrong is because he'd end up using that dumb voice he used for Agent Smith, Elrond and Megatron).

Think an unknown would be best. Anyone famous would try to act too macho and put on an insanely gruff voice (something along the lines of Bale's in Dark Knight - eek!)

He wasn't among the other touted contenders. Having finally sat down to watch The Wire I could see Dominic West taking on Dredd.

Hello people, new user here. Here's my thoughts.

The actor who plays Dredd does have to look the part but i believe more important (especially if he doesn't reveal his face) is his voice. One of the problems with Stallone was the man could barely speak (not his fault as i believe his face is half paralysed or something..?). The talk about 300 got me thinking about Gerard Butler. What do you reckon? He has the look - athletic and bulky enough without looking like a meathead and he can also do the 'F*** you, i'm in charge - do as i say or you're dead' bit very well.

You are in Hell little man....and I am The Devil! Just kidding, welcome to the forums mate.

Good call on Butler, since 300 and RocknRolla he always springs to mind for me when thinking of actors for gruff (yet heroic) leading men. I could totally see him as Dredd.

I think I'm probably in the minority here but I really didn't have a problem with Stallone as Dredd tbh, now I mean that when he's got the helmet on and actually doing his Judge thing he was just fine in the role (though not outstanding). The big problem I thought was when the helmet comes off.....and there's Sylvester Stallone. After that it turns into a pretty generic "badass on the run" kind of deal and something we've seen from Stallone before in First Blood or even Cliffhanger.

I think whomever takes the role should remain covered up (ala Hugo Weaving in V for Vendetta) and check their ego at the door. Obviously changes have to be made from comic to screen but at the core of Dredd's reputation is that you never see his face in full - if you do have to show his face in film then that's perhaps when you need a lesser known actor (rather than a star) so that their celebrity doesn't overwhelm the actual character they're inhabiting. Butler, Stevenson and West could probably just get away with that because they're cult rather than A-list.

Before you all go mental with me, just go to google and do an image search. Check out Jason Stathams chin...that's Dredd.

Now, I love The Stath but he is not Dredd. I never want to hear his attempts at an American accent again.

If you're talking chins then surely Aaron Eckhart is a good fit and (let's be honest here) a superior actor to The Stath. Would probably require a good stuntman though - unlike The Stath. Stath, Stath, Stath, Stath, Stath, Stath, Stath.

Stath should be the villain.

I'd love to see Hugo Weaving playing Dredd. He's got the looks, has a deep, cultivated voice and can possitively turn his mouth into an inverted "U", which is paramount in portraying Dredd. His jaw kinda sucks thought 2 pointy and elf like.

A while ago, someone suggested Thomas Hayden Church as Dredd, which I think is a great idea - he looks like a 2000AD character already, what with that chin and those ears, so whacking a Dredd outfit on him and sitting him on a lawmaster would be a wise move.

Still think an animated series - using a pretty rough, muted art style like the comics - would be the best route for Dredd. No matter how much they try to avoid repeating the last effort, a live-action film will still probably end up looking too shiny. Plus, they could do a whole bunch of series' based on other characters - how good would a Rogue Trooper animation be? Or Strontium Dog, Slaine, even the ABC Warriors. Anyone remember the animated adverts for 2000AD and Judge Dredd: Lawman of the Future in 1995? They were great.

In the new Total Film, Sly admits he cocked up on Dredd....

Anyway, there's a script review for the new Dredd film on AICN.

They ain't kidding that it will be low budget. Can anyone say constant redressing of the same sets?

I reckon it sounds perfect for a reboot/set up of a new Dredd franchise. I always liked Anderson more than Hershy anyway.

Sounds very much like a Die Hard/Training Day sci-fi mashup from that review - a novel way to tackle the Dredd universe but I was hoping for something a bit more...I don't know, important to that world.
Anyway it does sound like the story will fit the budget so if nothing else this will probably act as a test as much as anything else and if successful then maybe we'll see the expanded universe a bit. Think of how X-Men felt like a trailer for X2.

Exactly. If the films a success they can expand in the sequel and with a name like Dredd is obvious the stuido is hoping for a franchise.

Hmmm.... Paranormal goings on? Does this mean we could get a Judge Death?

I'd settle for a good Chopper story.

hmmmm doesn't sound toooo bad.  Kind of sounds like many of the one shot stories you'd get.

There be rumours that Karl Urban (Lord of the Rings, Pathfinder, Star Trek) may be doning the helmet to play Judge Dredd.
