Here are some photos from the set of the Judge Dredd film, Dredd, that is shooting in Cape Town, South Africa.
Karl Urban stars as Dredd. In these new photos we can see some of the Mega-City One signs and vehicles.
I love 2000AD and Judge Dredd, but I must say I am a bit unimpressed with the vehicles on show. I think it is because they look, well they are, vans from this day and age with a few bits and pieces on them. The Stallone version of Judge Dredd had a lot of faults, but at least all the cars and vehicles looked cool and futuristic. I want big fat tyres and things like that.
Judge Dredd Movie News also had this casting call news. Spoilers ahead. I’ve read the script, or an early version of it. I really enjoyed it although it dropped into many action movie cliches in the end, but it did have a good feel to it. Many of the characters below feature in the script I read so not many changes in that regard.
