Charlize Theron has just signed on to join the cast of Mad Max: Fury Road. The film is the 4th installment in the series and will start shooting in Australia next August.
This is a film franchise that has been dark for over 20 years, so there’s a lot anticipation and excitement to bring it back. As you may recall, the person responsible for making Mad Max popular is Mel Gibson began his career with Mad Max in 1979, shot in Victoria and portraying a broken-down future society.
George Miller, the original director and producer, is doing the 4th film. He announced last weekend that pre-production work was starting in New South Wales but he didn't give any indication as to whether Mel Gibson might return or who would play the male lead. "It could be Mel, it could be anyone," he told reporters.
We’ll have to sit and wait! We don’t know what Mad Max would be without Mel, though!
