Since the exciting announcement of the upcoming ”Judge Dredd: Mega-City One” TV series, many fans have been wondering if Dredd star Karl Urban will be back to reprise the role. Well, we can confirm that he’s in discussions right now about returning to the world of Dredd once again.

Via ComicBook.com, Urban revealed:

I am in discussions with them about that,” Urban revealed. “I told them that if they write the material and give Dredd something to do and give him a function, I will be there. I would love to.

It’s unlikely that we’ll see the series for at least another two years, which is currently in very early development stages at IM Global and independent U.K. games developer and publisher Rebellion, says CEO Jason Kingsley.

”Judge Dredd: Mega-City One” is set in a future where the East Coast of the U.S. has become a crowded and crime-ridden megalopolis. It will be an ensemble drama about a team of Judges — futuristic cops invested with the power to be judge, jury, and executioner — as they deal with the challenges the future-shocked 22nd century throws at them.
