Lena Headey Cast as Main Villain in "Judge Dredd" Remake

Posted: January 11th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Lena Headey Cast as Main Villain in "Judge Dredd" RemakeSubmit Comment
Lena Headey (300, "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) has been cast as the main villain in the upcoming "Judge Dredd" remake. She is joining a cast comprised of Karl Urban as the title character and Olivia Thirlby (Juno) as psychic rookie Judge Cassandra Anderson.

Headey will play gang-leader Madeline Madrigal (aka Ma-Ma). In the script she is described as being "in her late fifties or early sixties with a big scar through her cheek and lip." The filmmakers have apparently decided to make the role a bit younger and sexier.

Bleeding Cool states that in the movie Ma-Ma and her gang have taken over the Peach Tree City Block and most of the film will take place in this location.

"Dredd" is directed by Pete Travis (Vantage Point) and is currently shooting in South Africa.

Can't think of ANY film with an old female villain that worked for me, so I'm not sure the casting sucks, but I can see some serious flaws in the story.

So now, Big Bad Mama (Originally played by Angie d*ckinson) is metaphorically placed in the world of Judge Dredd ?

f*ck, why not put Rob Schneider back in too ? God knows he needs the work, you f*ckin' wankers.

@minkowski

Because it worked so well for Uma Thurman in Batman & Robin ...

I don't care what her role is. As long as she shows some nudity and some porn moves, that's fine by me.

@Mink- What about Goonies? Old woman villain...great movie. Lena Headey does not have the star power to pull off a villain role. Maybe they can be f*ck buddies instead?

@Ranger

There was Laura Flynn Boyle's character Selena in Men In Black 2 ..... uh, never mind.

Oh! Wait! How about Sean Young in Ace Ventura, Pet Detective ? She played a transsexual ?? ....Oh, never mind again.

Well ... how about Sean Young in real life ? I heard she could give Margot " Hedges Resident " Kidder and Shelly " Where's My Meds ? " Duvall a run for their money!
