Karl Urban Would Be Open To A DREDD Sequel; Says He'd Play A Stormtrooper In STAR WARS
Unfortunately a sequel to the awesome DREDD is unlikely but the man who played 'ol stoney face, Star Trek Into Darkness' Karl Urban, seems up for reprising the role if he got the chance. He also talks about a potential part in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII.
Although Pete Travis' DREDD was well received by both fans and critics, it failed to make enough of an impact and the box office stateside to warrant a sequel. However, the movie is currently doing pretty well on Blu-ray/DVD, so is it at all possible that we might get a return trip to Mega City One someday? If we do, the man who donned the helmet the first time around would be up for it. "I don’t know. I would be open to it but obviously, it’s not my choice," the Kiwi actor told The Irish Independant. "I’m glad that it went down so well. It was a good, fun film and it’s amazing how many people I talk to that really enjoyed Dredd and have discovered it on DVD." As we all know, Urban's Star Trek director J.J. Abrams is gearing up to shoot Star Wars Episode VII soon -- would The Enterprise's good doctor ever consider jumping ship to the rival franchise? "Hands down. JJ Abrams is one of the most extraordinary directors I’ve ever worked with," he says. "I don’t necessarily see the worlds of Star Trek and Star Wars joining but if JJ called me up and asked me to be a Stormtrooper, I’ll be there. I would just love to visit the set and see the Millennium Falcon." Obviously it's pretty unlikely Abrams would use any of his Trek cast for Star Wars, but you never know! Any roles you gusy think Urban would suit? Sound off below.
