Dredd 3D: Alex Garland on Doing Judge Justice

by at . Comments

As executive producer and screenwriter of Dredd 3D, Alex Garland has a unique perspective on why Karl Urban was the perfect choice to portray the comic-book-to-big-screen hero. “He understood the part completely,” Garland told Movie Fanatic in our exclusive video interview at the Toronto International Film Festival.

As told to us in our Karl Urban interview, the actor grew up in New Zealand an enormous fan of the graphic novels and comics. “One thing about Karl is that he arrived fully formed. He didn’t need any further information about the character,” Garland said. “He knew the comic books backwards and forwards.”

Garland also told us why he thinks the character has been so resonant for fans since he debuted in 1975.
