With J.J. Abrams Star Trek Into Darkness now playing around the world, we recently landed an exclusive phone interview with Karl Urban. During the interview, he talked about making the sequel, his reaction to reading the script, how things changed on set, who was the one who broke the most while filming, filming with IMAX cameras, the 3D, and more. He also talked about the possibility of a Dredd sequel, his upcoming Fox TV show Almost Human, and The Loft. Hit the jump for what he had to say.
A couple weeks ago, we reported that Karl Urban and Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights) were set to star in Human, a pilot from J.J. Abrams and J.H. Wyman (Fringe). The series is described as “an action-packed buddy cop show set in a future where all LAPD officers are being partnered up with highly evolved human-like androids.” Urban plays John Kennex, a respected police officer who has shut down emotionally after a tragic mission left him critically injured. Even though this looks like an average police procedural with a couple of twists (the future, androids), it will be worth a look because of Urban. Filming is now underway in Vancouver, and the first set photos show Kennex investigating a crime scene surrounded by slightly-futuristic vehicles.
