JUDGE DREDD: MEGA-CITY ONE Could See DREDD Actor Karl Urban Reprise The Role Of The Ruthless Lawman

We were led to believe that the new Judge Dredd TV series would be a completely separate entity to the 2012 film, but it seems there have been discussions about Karl Urban returning to the role...

Last week, it was announced that a new Judge Dredd TV series was in the works from IM Global and independent U.K. games developer, Rebellion. The show will be titled Judge Dredd: Mega-City One, and although fans were disappointed that hopes for a big-screen sequel to 2012's Dredd were seemingly dashed, we might just have some (potentially) good news as it relates to that movie's star.

While speaking on The 2000 AD Thrill-Cast, Mega-City One producer Brian Jenkins suggested that there have been discussions about bringing Karl Urban back on board to reprise the role, but that his schedule may not allow it.

“We have had many conversations prior to this, about all sorts of things. He’s also very busy, a full-time professional actor. So we’re going to have some long and complicated conversations I would imagine, and we’ll see where we go. It’s too early to tell yet, but if we can use him and he’s available to us, then I think that would be absolutely brilliant. There’s always a possibility he will be busy, or that his schedule for other movies won’t allow — basically, we don’t know at this stage.”

Urban has previously stated that he'd don Joe Dredd's helmet again in a second for a sequel, but would he still be so enthusiastic about a TV series?

Obvioulsy we'll have to wait and see if anything comes of this, but even the fact that they're open to him returning is a step in the right direction.
