The LA Times’ Hero Complex blog has a new feature up on the upcoming Dredd movie including a new photo of Lena Headey as the character Madeline “Ma-Ma” Madrigal. Here are a few excerpts from their interview with Headey:
“The world [in the film] feels really British, and I don’t know if that’s because it’s so dirty and dark,” Headey said. “And it’s … violent. Just in terms of gunplay, they’re not afraid to show blood and gunshot wounds. And it’s set up in this concrete sort of shanty town — it’s shanty but they’re blocks — concrete favelas.”
Headey also described her character in the film:
“She’s a prostitute who then kills her pimp and takes over his drug-running business,” said Headey…”And Ma-Ma is a bit of a man-hater.”
