01.23.11 by BJSprecher
A new "spy pic" from the South African set of director Pete Travis' latest movie, Dredd, has appeared on TwitPic. The photo offers the first look at the movie version of Judge Dredd's classic "Lawmaster" motorcycle, which the futuristic comic book lawman uses to patrol the mean streets of Mega-City One. Additionally, though it's not the clearest shot, the photo reveals more of the Judge costume that Karl Urban will be wearing as the title hero.
Academy Award-winning director Danny Boyle's (Slumdog Millionaire) DNA Films is producing Dredd and the script was written by Alex Garland, writer of the Boyle-directed movies 28 Days Later and Sunshine. Olivia Thirlby (Solitary Man) and Lena Heady (300) also star. Dredd is tentatively slated to open December 1st in the U.K.; a U.S. release date has not been set.
