October 1, 2010 - ‘Judge Dredd’ Movie Adds Olivia Thirlby
Actress Olivia Thirlby has been cast in the upcoming 3D-inclusive “Judge Dredd” movie.
Thirlby’s most recognizable role may be that of pregnant teen Juno’s best friend in the 2007 flick of the same name. According to Variety, she’ll be starring alongside Karl Urban (“Star Trek”) as Cassandra Anderson, a telepathic new recruit who partners with the Judge and a character in the original comic published as part of UK compilation “2000 AD”.
The character’s inclusion is just one of many indications that the reboot—based on a screenplay from Alex Garland (“28 Days Later”) and visuals by “The Losers” artist Jock—will embrace its original comic book source material.
“Judge Dredd” comic creator John Wagner for one, has been pleased with the film’s comic faithful pre-production content, a sentiment echoed by star and longtime “Dredd” reader Karl Urban. Both men are also quite united in their opinions on the first, Sylvester Stallone 1995 “Judge Dredd” film.
With casting near complete, it’s likely “Judge Dredd” will meet its slated theater debut date of 2012.
