According to Karl Urban himself, he has been in talks with producers to reprise his role as Judge Dredd in the new Mega City One TV show that is currently in development. After watching the 2012 Dredd movie I honestly can’t picture anyone else in that role.

“I am in discussions with them about that.” Urban said at a panel during Star Trek Las Vegas last weekend (via TrekMovie). “I told them that if they write the material and give Dredd something to do and give him a function, I will be there. I would love to.” quote taken from CBR.com

The 2012 Dredd film was a commercial flop but gained cult status over the years especially after the home release of the movie. Karl Urban has stated in the past that he believes that “Dredd’s” Box Office Bombing “Represented a Failure in Marketing”. One thing is for sure that fans of the series have been asking for more Dredd and especially for Karl Urban to make his return. As always we want to hear from you Nerd Nation.
