Are you ready for JUDGE DREDD? Or just plain DREDD as it is called now.

The first shot of Karl Urban as Dredd wasn't so bad. I think a lot of people are fans of the comic version of Dredd. Plus with everyone remaking everything, the spirit of the average moviegoer has sunk a little.

Perhaps a little Lena Heady in the film will do the trick. A fansite called Judge Dredd Movie News reports that Heady, who you have seen in 300 and THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES, will be taking on the role of lead villain Ma-Ma. Real name Madeline Madrigal, is the gang head who sends her cronies after Dredd when he and Cadet Cassandra Anderson bust one of her clan members.

Synopsis:

"DREDD takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring DREDD to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerras revered comic strip."

Extra Tidbit: There's gotta be some fans of the '95 Stallone version. I remember back in Elementary School all the boys would play Judge Dredd and bring their Dredd lunchboxes to school.

I could care less about Judge Dredd. BUT, I absolutely love that photo and am so friggin' excited to see her performance in Game of Thrones. She needs to be one of the most vile, hatable bitches in TV history . . .

I love Headey, and think she'd be great here! This is shaping up nicely.

Lena Headey loves to show off her tits and bush in movies, which means I love the idea of her being in this movie (Judge Dredd).

I think it's awesome and sexy as hell at the same time. I like the idea of a female vilian going against Dredd.
