The funny thing about this is that "Judge Dredd" is a comic book; meaning both leading actresses of TSCC would be playing a character with comic book vibe
Lena Headey, best known for her roles in 300 and as the titular character in television’s “The Sarah Connor Chronicles,” is playing Ma-Ma, the villain in the upcoming comic book reboot, Dredd.
In the gritty script by Alex Garland, Judge Dredd (played by Karl Urban) finds himself besieged in a dangerous slum run by crime boss and drug kingpin Madeline Madrigal, or Ma-Ma.
However, in Garland’s take, the character is described as “in her late fifties or early sixties” with a “diagonal stripe scar that disfigures her cheek and top lip,” so it seems the production has made some changes.
Headey has not been officially announced by DNA Films (for whatever reason), but Bleeding Cool picked up the rumor for multiple sources. She joins a relatively low key cast that includes Urban (check out the first official image) and indie darling Olivia Thirlby, who plays new judge recruit Cassandra Anderson.
Pete Travis is directing the reboot in 3D in South Africa for an unknown release.
According to Screen Daily, Lena Headey will play the lead in Gary Sinyor’s new thriller The Unseen. Headey will portray a grieving mother who starts to suffer attacks of blindness. The shooting is scheduled for late spring in the Balearic Islands, just off the coast of Spain.
Lena plays the bad guy, called Ma-Ma, in upcoming Judge Dredd reboot but i've not seen a pictures of her in the movie so far.
Not "Judge Dredd" related but Lena Headey joined the animated series, Grimm Fairy Tales as the vocal leading lady.
Grimm Fairy Tales is based on the comic book series that Zenescope Entertainment has published since 2005. Every issue contains a familiar fairy tale being retold by Dr. Sela Mathers, a literature professor whose twisted versions of these stories are pointed cautionary tales. Lena Headey will voice Sela, and will also be a major creative force on the series.
karl urban says the dredd sequel is up to the fans. 2012`s dredd was a bit of a mixed bag. some hated it and some loved it. personally, i thought it was a solid attempt to bring back the character and re-introduce him to a new audience. unfortunately, the box office didnt agree with me as the final numbers rolled in at 32 million dollars, failing to make back its 50 million dollar budget. blu-ray/dvd sales were much stronger but we still haven`t heard any official confirmation on a sequel. despite everything, karl urban, who starred as the titular character, is still hopeful that a dredd 2 will happen. while at comic-con 2013, the actor said that they are doing everything they can to make it happen. `the more people that campaign for it, the more people that email, twitter, write-in to lionsgate saying we want to see more of this, then the more likelihood we will get to see it, we`re certainly doing everything we can to make sure it happens` at this stage, the film has acquired a pretty large cult following and many people are asking for a sequel. no doubt lionsgate has taken notice of this and i think its only a matter of time before we get an official announcement.
18. Lena Headey ACTRESS, KICK-ASS QUEEN. From: UK Previous form: Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, 300, Dredd, Game Of Thrones... in other words: Best. CV. Ever. The Buzz: If you were to arrange a deathmatch between all the characters played by Headey over the past few years, we’re confident it would end in a draw. Her back catalogue includes a Sarah Connor so determined that it’s a wonder Terminators didn’t run away squeaking at the sight of her; a Spartan Queen with balls of steel; a drug dealer so icily diabolical that even Judge Dredd had a problem bringing her to justice and, of course, a coolly conniving Lannister. Long may she reign.
