Hardy is Mad Max

10.29.2009

It looks like the names we've been hearing lately for FURY ROAD are heading into the wasteland.

Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron are officially in negotiations to star George Miller's fourth time barreling down the white line nightmare with MAD MAX.

And according to THR, Hardy (BRONSON, ROCKnROLLA, STAR TREK NEMESIS) is indeed taking over for Mel Gibson as lawman-turned-road warrior "Mad" Max Rockatansky. They claim "the movie does take place a short while after the story detailed in 1985’s MAD MAX BEOND THUNDERDOME, which keeps Mad Max relatively young."

This actually goes against other rumors (as yet unverified) I've been hearing lately, that Gibson would indeed be back in a smaller capacity -- and one that would put an interesting twist on his nickname.

The movie, which has spent a decade searching for fuel, will film in Australia next summer.

Extra Tidbit: Hardy seems to be a popular choice for Max on our recent "CAST THIS!" column.

How could you call it Mad Max 4? This is probably just a remake disguised as a sequel. Wait a couple of months and you'll see the studio change into calling it mad max

hmmm this is awesome. Tom hardy is such a talented actor, He was really my fav part of star trek nemesis, and he was really good as the awkward guy in scenes of a sexual nature. I really wanna see Bronson but its not playing anywhere in Miami poo poo to that. thumbs up for this one.

and my god is he sexy

Awesome. Even though I wont bitch if he is actually Max, I dont think its been confirmed yet, only that he is the "male lead." I kinda hope he ends up being that boomerrang kid from road warrior all grown up looking for Max

This doesn't feel right to me. It's like doing an Indiana Jones movie without Harrison Ford.

This will completely reinvent the franchise. For those of you who are not sure of Tom Hardy playing Mad Max. Watch Bronson, you'll change your mind.

Good Choice

Despite loathing the decision to continue this without Mel and last week with remaking The Crow (which Brandon Lee will probably roll over in his grave with)Hardy is a great choice. He was in Pittsburgh filming "Warrior" which comes out next year and the dude already has an impressive resume, but he's gonna go A-list with his next couple of movies coming out. I like Worthington too, but he's got enough good stuff going for him and we don't need the overkill effect. Man, am I opinionated today!?

Sweet deal

Glad they finally got all this sorted out, Hardy is definitely the man for the job. Now all we have to worry about is when the movie will actually be released.

Haven't seen any of his work but simply based on trailers I know he's a talented actor. Big fan of cinema too.

Hope this goes well for all.

Ayatollah of RocknRolla

Fuckin A. I can't ever get enough of that Bronson trailer.

Side note: How glad are we all that George Miller is back in Mad Max world instead of butchering a Justice League movie?
