Judgement day

Wellington-born actor Karl Urban, 38, who played Dr Leonard “Bones” McCoy in last year’s Star Trek, will soon play the sci-fi law enforcer Judge Dredd. “Yes, there is a lot of truth to that rumour,” Urban told journalists at a recent Comic-Con. “It’s early days yet, but it is something that’s definitely looking very, very good.” Regardless of Dredd’s fortunes, Urban has that other science-fiction franchise to fall back on. Cameras are expected to roll on a Star Trek sequel next year for a June 212 premiere. Urban has worked on many high-profile films, including in two of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Bourne Supremacy and The Chronicles of Riddick. Urban lives in Auckland.
