Karl Urban will return as Dredd in Mega-City One if these conditions are met

Back in May, we let you guys know that DREDD star Karl Urban was in consideration to reprise his role in the upcoming TV series based on the JUDGE DREDD comics.

Since then word has been mostly quiet on MEGA-CITY ONE, until today when Urban spoke with Screen Rant and talked a bit about what would need to happen/be provided for him to accept the role again.

Karl Urban on playing Dredd again:

I’ve had many discussions with them about my involvement of which I am interested, and I said to them, ‘Listen, if you write a character that has a function and a purpose and contributes to the overall story, then I might be very interested in reprising that role.’ I certainly wouldn’t want to step into it and just pay lip service to the movie. There has to be some material there that warrants further exploration of that character. So the ball’s in their court.

How excited are you for the (possible) return of Karl Urban as Judge Dredd in MEGA-CITY ONE? Let us know below or on social media!

DREDD (2012) synopsis:

Mega City One is a vast, violent metropolis where felons rule the streets. The only law lies with cops called "judges," who act as judge, jury and executioner, and Dredd (Karl Urban) is one of the city's most feared. One day, Dredd is partnered with Cassandra (Olivia Thirlby), a rookie with powerful psychic abilities. A report of a terrible crime sends Dredd and Cassandra to a dangerous area controlled by Ma-Ma (Lena Headey), a drug lord who will stop at nothing to protect her empire.
