Still on a SethEffriken theme (will this joy know no abatement?) the new Judge Dredd film – with the understated if unimaginative working title Dredd – is currently shooting in Cape Town, starring the groovy Karl Urban (who so impressed in Red). Dredd is Africa’s first 3-D movie production and the first to use the Cape Town Film Studios, a precinct I was closely involved with whilst at the Cape Film Commission. But I digress…… Dredd is currently out and about, filming on location in the Mother City – and Live for Films has some pics.
This one is taken at the strikingly grotesque sixties Civic Centre. Check the African Hat. Anyway, LFF also includes a casting list from the film – check out the fairly specific racial requirements. How do you do that and avoid god-awful Hobbit-esque embarassment?
