Olivia Thirlby Talks DREDD
While attending The Sundance Film Festival Olivia Thirlby sat down and talked about her upcoming role as Judge Anderson in the upcoming reboot of Judge Dredd that will be titled Dredd
MTV caught up with Olivia Thirlby at this years Sundance Film Festival to talk about her role as Judge Anderson in Pete Travis' Dredd. Suprisingly enough she reveals that they wrapped filming over a year ago saying it has been a slow process putting the film together. She also talked about the challenges of shooting a film like Dredd saying she need to learn how to shoot a gun with out looking like a spaz.
On Shooting Dredd:
We were shooting that a year ago, its taking a long time. That's what I was blonde for. It was a really fun time. I feel like I've done it and had that experience. I did three action scifi movies and it's definitely very different from shooting a film like NOBODY WALKS. Its very very fun, very challenging, and very hard work. It's a whole different set of challenges because I had to learn how to shoot a gun and not look like a spaz, and make those kinds of things look believable.
On her research for the role of Judge Anderson:
"The script was really, really good. But I was playing a character that existed in the comics, and actually had her own spin-off, Judge Anderson. I looked at the comics a lot. She was drawn by a bunch of different people, as well as written by a bunch of different people. So, there's lots of different Andersons. There is some very sassy Andersons, and some very sad burdened Andrsons. Mostly I played her based on how I could relate to her and the wonderful script that Alex Garland wrote."
Dredd stars Karl Urban, Olivia Thirlby, Lena Headey, and will be released on September 21, 2012.
