Grudd! Its a drokkin Lawmaster with no handlebars! This new image comes straight from the streets of South Africa via /Film. We have already seen the Helmet, vehicles, Urban decked out, the script and recently heard what John Wagner the creator of old Stoney face thought after visiting the sets. Now we have the bike.
Its obviously still quite a departure from the overtly seventies design [below]. Pete Travis' new version seems like it is made for speed. In the comic series all Lawmakers have artificial intelligence, twin bike cannons and a very impressive turbo-boost function. It can also respond to verbal commands and drive itself. Its not known if it is Karl Urban or a stunt double onboard.
Pete Travis' Dredd is currently shooting now in South Africa, starring Karl Urban as Judge Joe Dredd, Olivia Thirlby as Judge Cassandra Anderson and Lena Headey as Madeline Madrigal/Ma-Ma.
Dredd takes us to the wild streets of Mega City One, the lone oasis of quasi-civilization on Cursed Earth. Judge Dredd (Karl Urban) is the most feared of elite Street Judges, with the power to enforce the law, sentence offenders and execute them on the spot – if necessary. The endlessly inventive mind of writer Alex Garland and the frenetic vision of director Peter Travis bring Dredd to life as a futuristic neo-noir action film that returns the celebrated character to the dark, visceral incarnation from John Wagner and Carlos Ezquerra’s revered comic strip.
