George Miller Has Found His Max
Tom Hardy is currently in negotiations to play "Mad" Max Rockatansky in Fury Road, the fourth (and endlessly delayed) film in the post-apocalyptic franchise famous for sending dozens of stuntman to the hospital and making it necessary that Bruce Spence appear in every blockbuster geek franchise.
Now Hardy is no stranger to Twitch - we were all recently impressed by his phenomenal turn as Michael "Charles Bronson" Peterson in Nicholas Refn's Bronson - so I expect this news should delight many, along with the fact that it looks like the film is really happening this time
Charlize Theron is also in talks to play "the female lead". Considering Max's track record, I wonder if she'll survive the film. THR.com reports.
And to further convince us that he is serious about returning to the 'pocscalyptic wasteland Australia, Miller has already started building the cars. See the Youtube embed below:
