- JUDGE DREDD REMAINS FACELESS!!
It's been said before, but Karl Urban has reassured fans of Judge Dredd, speaking about how important it is for the character that the helmet remains on for the duration of the movie.
|Karl Urban is JUDGE DREDD|
Speaking to Total Film, Urban said, "If anyone if familiar with Dredd, over the years there are many times when he removes his helmet but you never fully see his face. This was a construct by the creators because he represents a faceless system of justice and law."
He also went on to describe how he'd react as a fan:
"I say this hypothetically. If I went to a movie called Judge Dredd and the lead actor at one point took of his helmet so we could see his full face I would just puke in my popcorn because that's not Dredd. He is mysterious and enigmatic. We're doing it right, it's gonna be harder, grittier and above all faithful to the comic. It's gonna kick ass."
Judge Dredd is scheduled for release on September 21, 2012.
