Judge Dredd remake villain could be Lena Headey

Terminator star may be Ma-Ma

Lena Headey

Terminator: Sarah Connor Chronicles actress Lena Headey has reportedly been cast as the villainess in the new Judge Dredd movie.

Fansite Judge Dredd Movie News have announced that Headey has been cast as Madeline Madrigal aka Ma-Ma, the leader of a gang who have taken over the Peach Tree City Block.

Which will come as a surprise for anybody who’s seen the script, which describes the character as in her late 50s with “a big scar through her cheek and lip”.

Though Headey’s clearly younger than that, she could rock the scar look in her sleep. This is the woman who played Sarah Connor after all.

A more faithful version of the original 2000AD comic than Sly Stallone’s film, this new 3D Dredd stars Karl Urban and Olivia Thirlby, and is being directed by Pete Travis with a script by Alex Garland.

Think Headey's a good catch? Or Dredding her performance? Talk to us below...

      The cast seems to be getting better and better. I'm getting much more excied about this.

      Don't know much about the character, but love Lena Headey, she's a fine actress. Still say Dredd's helmet is too big though. Also, nipples! (oh come on, someone had to say it)
