with the original director on board.  I wonder if they'll dust off Mel for this or go with a new actor, although I'm not sure who'd I pick to fill those boots.

I'm not sure what the "original director" comment is about since George Miller has directed all (well mostly all) of the previous three Mad Max movies and has always controlled the franchise.  The comment implies that there was a time when someone else was involved.

At any rate, the linked article fails to mention that Miller has been trying to restart the franchise for like ten years.  At one point everyone was talking about how Heath Ledger was going to star in the new one, just to give one example. Every few years we get another "almost about to happen this time!" blurb that never amounts to anything.  So its way too early to get excited about the latest rumor.

Yeah,it may only be a few shots but it certainly has the feel right

Is this the only thread for Mad Max?,it's just that i thought we were discussing about Charlize Theron being in it and it being a prequel and Mad Mel* turning down the script etc

A lot of reboots,i get a bit pissed that the original actor isn't being the star(Escape from New York remake not having Kurt Russell for instance...no one else can be snake IMO,no matter how old Kurt Russell is),but i am not that bothered that this wont be Mel Gibson,and quite looking forward to seeing what Tom Hardy can do

This reminds me -- Warner Brothers earlier this year announced plans for a Lethal Weapon re-boot with none of the original cast (Gibson, Glover, etc.) or director (Richard Donner) involved. I predict Chris Hemsworth will be cast in it because it appears he will eventually be cast in everything.

Ironically, Danny Glover is finally, at 61, beyond the age of Murtagh in the movies. Glover was 36 in the first film, playing a character who was turning 50; and 48 at the time of LW4 in 1998.

As far as Mad Max goes, yeah there was long talk of director George Miller and Mel Gibson reuniting one last time. Mel has torpedoed his career sooooo badly with his various outbursts and scandals, that he seems pretty much persona non-grata with the studios.

I'm also convinced his chronic chain smoking resulted in his aging far beyond his 56 years. I'm sure he could still physically get in shape for an action role. But he reminds me a bit of actor William Holden, who died in 1981 at age 63, but really looked at that point more like he was in his mid 70s -- most attributed that to excessive drinking and smoking giving him a "weathered" appearance as he moved into his 50s or so, and good roles dried up for him.

Official Synopsis:

Quote
Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived.

Yes, he finally is too old for this shit.   icon_biggrin

As for Mad Max, I think they could do worse than Tom Hardy and as usual I hope they don't fuck it up.

I had to scroll about to find out what you meant,no idea what that means either


I was looking at the Wiki page for this today
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mad_Max:_Fury_Road

and i was wondering if a lot said on that page is still relevant(i know its wiki an all,but it has links etc)

so,is any of this still true?

Quote
In November 2011, filming was moved from Broken Hill to Namibia, after unexpected heavy rains turned the desert there into a lush landscape of wildflowers, inappropriate for the look of the movie. Gibson now has a cameo role as 'Drifter'.[15]

Quote
The plot will be set shortly after the events of Beyond Thunderdome.[12]

Quote
Miller would shoot two Mad Max films back-to-back, Mad Max: Fury Road and Mad Max: Furiosa.[14]

That's too bad, but not surprising given the long history of problems and delays with the movie.

I'm more concerned about the game from Avalanche anyway.   icon_biggrin

As i asked above i am not sure whether this is still the case but Charlize Theron's character is called Imperator Furiosa,with the time its taken and the time its taking,it could very well be two films,but i am sure we would have heard more on that by now

George Miller on Mad Max Fury Road release date and Mel Gibson


seems that its because of the footy world cup next year that the film is being delayed until 2015,which is a ridiculous reason

and no,Mad Mel is not in the film as a cameo

but why are you reading this post?,surely Ceekay has just posted the exact same thing less than 90 seconds ago

Hmm, on the one hand there look to be some really nice visuals and the groundwork for cool action scenes, but on the other something about the trailer left me feeling hollow.  Oh well, it's early, I'm sure I'll bite.

It looks appropriately dark, unhappy, and depressing for a post-apocalyptic world.  I have no desire to see it but it seems to fit what one would expect.

Looks silly. Just another over the top special effects film. I'll watch the real Mad Max or The Road Warrior (good thing they didn't make a third movie and ruin it all icon_confused ) if I want a gritty car chase movie.
