Lena Headey confirmed for Dredd!

It's been hinted at and rumoured for the past few days, but now it seems to be offical.
300 and Sarah Conner Chronicles star Lena Headey is playing Ma-ma, the main villain in the upcoming comic adaptation Dredd.

As reported on Indiewire, she is "The matriarch of a drugs gang, who deals a reality-altering narcotic known as SLO-MO, and who presides despotically over an enormous apartment block called Peach Trees, in which most of the action is set, the character, intriguingly, is described in Garland’s script as being heavily made-up and scarred, in her later 50s/early 60s, and enormously fat. Will Headey be donning a fat suit and prosthetics for the role, or has the character been glammed-up in later drafts?"
Our money is on the second option...

The movie, starring Karl Urban in the title role, is due for release sometime inn 2012.
