Even Hugh Jackman would have been a better choice than Hardy - great as Tom is, he just seems utterly wrong for this role. Still looking forward to seeing the result...

Chud.com did an update just the other day...http://www.chud.com/91342/yes-mad-ma...lly-happening/

Quote:
There seems to be A LOT of confusion on the ‘net (particularly among Chewers) about what in the word is going on with Mad Max: Fury Road, the fourth installment in George Miller’s post-apocalyptic action saga. That’s not surprising, given the sheer amount of problems that the project has had to overcome on its way to theaters. It initially almost happened back in the late ’90s. Mel Gibson as still on-board to return at that point and it was months away from happening when disaster struck. Turmoil in the region it was scheduled to shoot (somewhere in Africa, I believe) halted the production and both Miller and Gibson moved on to other things. All seemed lost.

Cut to a few years ago when George starting tooting the horn again after he made Happy Feet. He announced that he would not be making one new Mad Max film, but three! The idea was to do Fury Road first and then follow it up with a Happy Feet sequel before moving on to the fifth entry. Obviously that didn’t happen. Financing problems arose and Happy Feet Two become the priority. Once Miller got the money figured out, he was set to shoot the film in late 2010/early 2011 out in the desert of his home country of Australia. To his horror, the region he had selected was hit with the largest amount of recorded rain in decades. His wonderful desert locations were turned into water and green-filled landscapes! Bummer.

Miller didn’t give up though. Pre-production continued on the film and the special vehicles for the project were all completed on time. Hell, they’ve been sitting in the new location (Namibia) for months now awaiting the start of production! Tom Hardy came on board to play ‘Mad’ Max Rockatansky and Charlize Theron signed up to co-star. That’s right people, this is a full-blown stand alone sequel to the original three films. Hardy is playing Mad Max himself…not some ******* child or a character who has taken on the mantle…and the film will pick up a few years after the events of Beyond Thunderdome.

What of the rest of the cast? Details are still sketchy at this point. We know that Hardy and Theron are both still on board, with the former seemingly ecstatic about the project whenever he’s actually asked about it. Teresa Palmer, Nicholas Holt, Zoe Kravitz, Adelaide Clemens, Richard Norton, and Hugh Keays-Byrne* were all previously attached when it was scheduled to shoot a little over a year ago. Palmer has since dropped out, but no word has been given about the rest. I’m assuming most (if not all) are still on board, but there’s really no way of knowing until some more concrete information about the cast slips out.

Back on Monday it was announced that supermodel Abbey Lee Kershaw will be making her acting debut in the film. Some speculate that she may be replacing Palmer. Whatever her role may be, apparently she will be locked in a cage for a portion of the film. That sounds entirely likely, given the previous entries.

The $130 million production starts shooting in Namibia sometime in May. According to Miller, virtually all of the stunts (both physical and most importantly, vehicular) will be done practically. The script was penned by Miller and British comic writer Brendan McCarthy, who also designed many of the vehicles and costumes for the project. Rumors arose last year that they might actually be shooting the first two installments in the new trilogy back-to-back and that the title of the second would be Mad Max: Furiosa. Given the size of the budget and the fact that Tom Hardy isn’t locked down to star in anything after Fury Road just yet (aside from press detail on TDKR), it DOES seem like a definite possibility. Someone is just going to have to sack up and ask Hardy about it while he’s doing Batman PR this summer if we haven’t already found out by then.

So there you have it. Mad Max: Fury Road is finally happening and, by all accounts, should hit theaters sometime in 2014. It is intended as the first in a new trilogy of Mad Max sequels from George Miller and we might just be getting the second installment shortly after. God willing, hopefully Miller will be able to make all three.

Interesting. I hope it works out and we finally get to see the whole trilogy.

Note of interest though regarding a named cast member...Hugh Keays-Byrne. Hugh was in the very first MAD MAX film as 'Toecutter' who...



(just in case...)

The only other thing I can recall seeing him in recently was FARSCAPE.

Just a bump on this as Theron mentioned it today with kermode and Mayo.

First I'd heard of it tbh and mad max is a bitch to search for.

I think this is the first (unofficial) shot of Tom Hardy as Mad Max:



I quite like the look of him in his outfit. It's not the same as I remember from the original Mad Max films, but that's okay. It good to try something different, especially as it's a different actor.

It did remind me out the style used in Terminator Salvation.

That's been doing the rounds for quite a while now. The costume isn't actually all that different - it seems to be the same jacket (guess he went back and picked it up after the Thunderdome goon pulled it off him) just with an added scarf and rucksack.

There are more pics of vehicles and some fairly bonkers-looking creatures if you go looking... hopefully a glimpse of some footage isn't too far off.

Wow! Despite shouting for six months summer last year, it's been confirmed that Miller is doing three weeks of reshoots in November.

Is there something Warner Bros isn't telling us? No footage, no pictures, not even a release date!

Maybe he lost his voice after all the shouting and couldn't tell them what to do the first time?

Miller hasn't directed a serious film in over 20 years - they really should have got in someone younger and more in touch.

A picture...I think it's a good bit of casting, he has that brooding intensity. And he's hard.

Well those stills certainly look like a Mad Max movie.

Only a year to wait...
