The Boys star Karl Urban has offered up an update on his potential involvement in Jason Kingsley's upcoming Judge Dredd series.
While promoting the second season of Amazon Prime Video's hit comic book adaptation, the actor revealed that he'd still jump at the chance to reprise the titular role for TV, following his stint as the character in the 2012 movie.
"Listen, it's very, very early to get into any specifics on that, but I've gone on the record before saying that I would love to come back and be a part of that world and tell more Dredd stories," he told Screen Geek's Mark Salcido.
"There is just a plethora of great, great stories within the Judge Dredd universe. I think that Jason and his team – I think that the legacy of Judge Dredd is in great hands, and if I get the opportunity to work with those guys, you can bet your bottom dollar I will be there.
"I think that it would be just a real rich and rewarding experience for, not only for us to collaborate, but for the fans," he continued.
"So, if that happens, that'd be fantastic and for whatever reason – and there are many – if it doesn't happen, then I wish them the best, and I can't wait to see what they do."
While it had a relatively unsuccessful return at the box office when it was released eight years ago, Dredd received decent reviews and has gone on to find somewhat of a cult following.
Enthusiastic fans have campaigned for a sequel for years so, despite it not being the big-screen outing they originally wanted, they welcomed the announcement that Kingsley was working on a show, titled Judge Dredd: Mega-City One, back in 2017.
In the meantime, the creators of the Crystal Maze live experience have shared plans for a Judge Dredd-themed experience, which is due to open in London next year.
The first three episodes of The Boys season two land on Amazon Prime Video on September 4. After that, they will be uploaded on a weekly basis. The show's first season is available to stream now.
