Lena Headey Goes From Beauty To Beast In First Image Of ‘Dredd’ Villain

British stunner Lena Headey is currently showcasing her talents in HBO’s epic series GAME OF THRONES, but she will soon be seen this September, in a reboot of 2000AD comic hero ‘Judge Dredd’. Headey, familiar from roles in Zack Snyder hit 300 and the short-lived series TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNER CHRONICLES, will play the scarred villain ‘Ma-Ma’ Madrigal.

VANTAGE POINT director Pete Travis has attempted to wipe the slate clean following Danny Cannon’s earlier cartoonish version of the DREDD character, played by Sylvester Stallone. We have had a few images from the new film, that stars Karl Urban as the unforgiving law-enforcer of Mega City One. However, this is the first image of Headey as the former prostitute-turned-drug kingpin.

DREDD comes from a script from 28 DAYS LATER’s Alex Garland and hits cinemas 7th September. The film also co-stars Olivia Thirby, Domhnall Gleeson, Deobia Oparei, Langley Kirkwood and Jason Cope.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
