Judge Dredd 3D's shooting location, schedule and budget revealed

The new JUDGE DREDD film starring Karl Urban has just begun pre-production in Cape Town, South Africa, making it the first major film to shoot in the newly built Cape Town Studios, a Hollywood-style facility which is the first of its kind in the continent.

The 3D flick is said to cost around $45 million and will continue shooting all the way through March of next year, a lengthy production period indeed. (Although the studio's doors don't officially open until October.)

Unfortunately, plot details are still under wraps, but it's been assured that Urban is playing Dredd with his mask on the entire time, and he'll no doubt be enforcing his ultra-strict brand of justice on the streets of Mega-City One. It's also said to be "hard R", which is music to all of our ears, I'm sure.

Flick is being produced by Andrew Macdonald (28 DAYS LATER, TRAINSPOTTING) and Michael S. Murphy (DISTRICT 9), so it's got a good pedigree on that front, although I'm less sure about director Pete Travis, whose only really notable credit is the forgettable 2008 film VANTAGE POINT. Still, I'm cautiously optimistic for now.

Hell Yes

I'm pumped because as soon as Urban was confirmed, I was reading the article and thinking to myself "he better not take off the helmet" and there it was just as I thought it, Urban confirmed that the helmet will stay on. Something tells me this will be awesome.

Well, as a Capetonian who visits this site on a daily basis, I can tell you that this is AWESOME news. Judge Dredd is filming down the road from me, who would have thought? Having said that, they should probably have chosen Johannesburg instead - they could just drop Urban on the streets and start filming, no set dressing required.
