MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Production Begins June 2!
Finally! Australia’s greatest hero, Mad Max, will return to the big screen. The stars have been long attached, the script long-finished, the location shifted from Max’s native Australia to Namibia (floods ruined the original location. Again, I say: Australia is a desert with surrounding coastal cities. Not sure why the move had to go intercontinental instead of down the road, but don’t mind the Aussie, he’s just bitter).
With respected thespian, soon to be megastar and possible Bat-breaker, Tom Hardy filling the leather pants this time around and Charlize Theron to play his main squeeze (don’t forget your dead wife, Max!), as well as the creator George Miller returning to helm the film, along with some cracking shots of the finest in new post-apocalyptic automotive engineering already out there, it’s fairly safe to not-so-boldly predict that we’re looking at a winner here.
With pre-production on Mad Max: Fury Road stretching all the way back to 2009, Ms Theron recently let slip to MTV News that June 2, 2012, is the date for production to begin at last.
The delay in filming worked out pretty well for Theron, who managed to sandwich in a part in Ridley Scott’s Prometheus (a film she knocked back originally due to her commitment to Max), as well as her awesome turn in Jason Reitman’s great Young Adult and the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman. Surely, she’s a lady who got to have her cake and eat it too. It’s been far too long since Max was on our screens (1985’s Beyond Thunderdome to be precise), and I’ve high hopes Fury Road will wash the taste of Tina Turner and Angry Anderson from our collective mouths…uh…if you catch my drift.
Keep checking back with us for all your Mad Max news, including (hopefully) word on which actors will play the most important role – the ubiquitous gender-bending, scene-chewing, ridiculous dialogue-spewing, leather-clad, drug-addled, oiled-up bad guy.
