It’s pre-production. During this point, there’s rarely any news. Nice that Urban keeps the flame alive though regarding his potential involvement.

It's worth baring in mind that the first season of The Boys is slated to be 8 episodes. What we know of the Dredd series suggests it's going to be around 8-12 episodes a season, so it really isn't inconceivable that Karl Urban could do both as long as they shoot at opposite ends of the year.

Karl Urban's casting in The Boys isn't conflicting with anything; if MC-1 was reaching close to production, it would, but that doesn't seem to be the case at the moment – so Karl Urban can't keep his calendar clear for something that might not happen for a long time, or possibly not happen at all if all stars don't align.

If The Boys is successful, and multiple seasons are commissioned alongside Karl Urban's regular film roster, then it might cause a scheduling problem when/if MC-1 achieves lift-off. Until then, things remain the same.

Not that the role should be beholden to any actor – it's not Indiana Jones. Much like Spider-Man and Batman aren't owned any actor, neither is Judge Dredd, so it's only an issue if they are in any way depending on Karl Urban's name for promotion or financing.

There's also the Superman route - where actors from previous iterations tend to appear in the later (Smallville had cast from the most famous Superman films, Supergirl, Lois & Clark and possibly others).

Not as Dredd, but I could see him as a character in that universe...

I thought Stallone would make a good Minty.

He's back-referencing an older interview which is when that picture was taken.
