IndieWire says it’s confirmed that Lena Headey (TERMINATOR TV series) has been cast as the female villain in the Judge Dredd movie DREDD.
The character is Madeline Madrigal, aka drug dealing gang leader ‘Ma-Ma’, who according to script leaks plans to kill all the street judges. The version of the script that circulated is said to have described the villainess as 50-60 years old, scarred and extremely overweight, not exactly type-casting for the attractive Headey.
The Lionsgate / DNA Films production is under production in South Africa, starring Karl Urban (STAR TREK) as Judge Dredd, and Olivia Thirlby as Judge Anderson.
Pete Travis (ENDGAME) directs, from a screenplay by Alex Garland (28 DAYS LATER).
