IMDB has some more of the cast up. Nobody I really recognise and from a brief skim of their previous credits it looks like they mostly cast a bunch of mid-to-low-budget film actors...not that there's anything wrong with that, just another sign that as much of the budget will be up on screen.
Only other one I recognized was Langley Kirkwood, who was awesome in Charlie Jade.

Re: The Law Returns. This Time With His Helmet On! Judge Dredd!

This is just a rumor and no where near being confirmed but it is of note...I'd certainly be happy if this was proven true.

Re: The Law Returns. This Time With His Helmet On! Judge Dredd!

I'd say that has a certain ring of truth to it. She has enough of a proven track record that she has the chops, has worked in a respectively budgeted film before while at the same time isn't some A-lister who'll burn a hole in *this* film's budget.

If true then I'll look forward to seeing her sink her teeth into it (literally if the leaked script holds true.)

Incidentally, here's a link to the blog where that story originated and I should point out that they don't even make a pretence at citing an unnamed source for this. Make of that what you will. Oh and they have more photos of the Lawgiver prop!

The news has been steadily good about this film. Tweak that helmet size and I'm sold

Re: The Law Returns. This Time With His Helmet On! Judge Dredd!

If anyone's interested, that blog I linked to earlier now has some recent photos of the female lead sporting her new crop of blonde hair. I can really see why they cast her as Anderson, she has that big black eyes thing going on that also got Pat Tallman cast as a telepath.

^ Agreed. Although I think they need to make her a platinum blond...that hair is a little off for me for some reason.

Isn't she Cersei in Game of Thrones? I dont want anything to take her away from that. Unless they do Dredd during her break from GOT.

The first season of Game of Thrones is already done filming. This won't interfere.

Re: The Law Returns. This Time With His Helmet On! Judge Dredd!

OK I looked at the production art several times...did anyone notice how much like the '97 film it looks? It would be hard not to do it much differently than that. The '97 movie had an $80 million budget...this one $45 million...hmmm should be interesting to see.

Re: The Law Returns. This Time With His Helmet On! Judge Dredd!

Well of course it'll have some things in common with the '97 film, (it is the same source material after all) but by all accounts this production is going for "gritty realism" (with perhaps a healthy bit of satire) in terms of tone and production design, while the Stallone film was a much more glossy, Blade Runner on steroids meets Star Wars type of affair.

If you really want to indulge in allegorical comparisons then I'd say this new film will look like Robocop meets District 9, with a plot that's like Die Hard meets Training Day...or we can just wait and see so we can judge the film on it's own merits.

Not that I'm a hair expert or anything but I gather there's only so much you can do with hair that's naturally very dark before you risk doing some damage. Plus I always saw Anderson as a bit of a dirty blonde. If you really want to see a cute white haired girl as a Psi Judge then I suggest you wait till they make a film with Exorcist Judge Lamia.

Re: The Law Returns. This Time With His Helmet On! Judge Dredd!

They're in production right now and yes the first season of Game of Thrones is already long completed as mentioned. I don't much care if it resembles the 97 film, what is going to distinguish it from that is the story and as Reverend and I have previously reported the story is very much different indeed. Alex Garland I think did a great job with the script as well as concentrating on the nitty gritty what Dredd fans expect to see from the character and world. I'm starting to think we could get a teaser trailer by the summer time maybe. That's just a guess the way things are progressing. I also agree about Dredd's helmet...although since this is being filmed in 3D, a part of me wouldn't be surprised if the helmet it's self will be rendered in 3D too.

See Carey Mulligan for further details about hair damage!

I kinda like the look she has though, if anything she looks more like Anderson than the comics portray her as (if that at all makes sense) I mean in the comics Anderson was always a babe, whereas this girl has a quirliker look that fits in more with the character. She probably has a harder job than Urban, so long as he can be gruff and deadpan he's sorted, but Anderson's gotta be empathetic, quirky, witty, irreverent...well basically carry all the emotions that Dredd can't! If they pull it off it'll be a great pairing.

Headey as the villain is sort of good news, I'm just slightly dissapointed cos she might have made a fab Hershey!

The Lawgivers seem like a lot else in the film, modern day Glocks with bits stuck on them. This isn't neccesarily a bad thing, invented prop guns can be very obvious to spot unless done right, but I still can't shake the feeling that this film's not going to feel nearly futuristic enough.

Obviously impossible to judge (ha ha) until we at least see a trailer.

^Actually that did occur to me too. Still, if Hersey is in this at all, it'd only be a cameo--IIRC there's an unnamed female Chief Judge on friendly terms with Dredd, so it's probably her--while on the other hand Ma-Ma plays a much bigger role. On balance more Headey is preferable than less.
