The other day came comments from Karl Urban that he’s had discussions with the makers of the upcoming “Judge Dredd: Mega City One” TV series to reprise the titular role he played in 2012’s “Dredd”.

Now, series producer Jason Kingsley has released a statement to IGN about the matter along with two new pieces of concept art. Kingsley says:

“We have been in discussions with Karl about his possible involvement in Judge Dredd: Mega-City One for some time. These conversations continue but we’re keen, he’s keen – it’s just a case of us making sure this show is everything we want it to be.

This needs to be done right – the fans deserve it. Our team is working hard on scripts for the first season, creating engaging multi-thread storylines, one of which will be Dredd’s but others which take us into the wider world of Mega-City One.”

The ensemble drama follows a team of Judges – futuristic cops invested with the power to be judge, jury, and executioner – as they encounter the myriad challenges of a world in which east-coast cities have merged into a giant megalopolis.

Despite the 22nd century setting, the issues will be familiar ones of the dangers of domestic terrorism to the tensions due to economic disparity.
