Olivia Thirlby has been cast as Cassandra Anderson in DNA Films’ 3D adaptation of “Judge Dredd.”

Thirlby, best known for playing the best friend of Ellen Page’s preggo character in “Juno,” will star opposite Karl Urban’s Dredd [STAR TREK, LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, PATHFINDER] in the futuristic action pic.

Thirlby will play Judge Cassandra Anderson, a psychically powered rookie Judge who teams with Judge Joe Dredd (Karl Urban) for training. Set in a dystopian future, the British comic book adaptation focuses on a police force given the power to act as judge, jury and executioner to whomsoever they perceive to be part of the criminal element.

In the 2000 A.D. comic book series (within which Judge Dredd is a recurring story), Anderson goes on to lead the city’s Psi Division, maintaining an uneasy friendship with Dredd.
