    To the best of my knowledge...

    So was Stallone... wasn't he?

    Maybe I really do need a new TV.

    That was a response to your Vin Diesel comment :rolleyes: :D
    Mind you, anyone would be better than Stallone, he was totally wrong for the role.

    I don't understand...

    Judge Dredd is caucasian, Stallone is caucasian, Diesel is caucasian.

    Italian origins both I think.

    Vin Diesel didn't look too white when I last saw him. Maybe I need to go see an optician.:blush:

    Well he ain't black.

    In fact, I've head whispers of him playing Conan Jr (or at least people wanting him to) in some daft update sequel. But the favourite for this role is WWF bloke the Rock. Now he is black, and Arnie ain't. If Rock, a black man can get a role that is genetically white, then I think Diesel, who is white, can do also. Unless of course... Grace Jones had her way with Conan.

    I'm not gonna comment more on this anyway. Fear I'm getting onto sensitive ground.

    Perfect Judge Dredd would be Steve Buscemi :p

    No, seriously, I think Vin Diesel would make an okay Dredd.
    Big Arnie would have been the perfect Dredd (in my opinion), but not now as he's a bit too old to pull the role off.

    Arnie? "I am thar Lore!" I don't see it myself. Stallone would have been ok, if he knew how to shut up and do as he's told.

    Vin Diesel gets my vote, but I can see it going to someone like Vinnie 'in over my head' Jones or some lame wrestler...

    Or maybe, cos he's got the chin, just maybe, De Niro, cos he'd be amazing. If you can make Stallone look big enough to play the part then the same could be done for him.

    Shame it will never happen.

    Didn't you ever see The Terminator ?
    Put a helmet on him and you've got Dredd.

    Also, Arnie has the jaw :)

    Funny you should mention that, as Diesel is in talks to star in Terminator 3. Diesel for Dredd! Arnie's too old, plus he's a ****e actor. Says everything when his best role is as an emotionless robot...

    I would have no problem with Stallone taking the lead role again but he isn't quite the force he was back in the 80's and early 90's.
    After a string of flops both Stallone and Arnie in desperate need of a box office smash!
    Why oh why they don't put aside the $20+ million fees they command and make something together I'll never know.Surely they could afford to waive their fees for "artistic integrity" and invest the money in a decent script instead?
    I would certainly pay to see a top drawer action flick with both of those two starring!

    Anyway I digress,I think Vin Deisel or The Rock would probably be frontrunners for the Dredd role as both are extremely hot property at the moment.I'm not sure about The Rock but Vin Deisel would make a great Dredd in my humble opinion.

    But Dredd IS old! So I reckon Clint Eastwood for the part! Who do you think should direct it? I think Paul Verhoeven would be good. He would put in some cool Otto Sump adverts and stuff.
