Hardy talks Mad Max

12.02.2009

Despite what the trade announcements claimed about the casting, there seems to be some question as to precisely who Tom Hardy (BRONSON, ROCKnROLLA) will be playing in George Miller's MAD MAX sequel FURY ROAD. In fact, even Hardy doesn't know.

As he evasively tells MTV: "If I get offered it and George really wants to go with me, then George will tell me exactly what he wants to do and we'll work together on the floor to create what it is that he wants to achieve. And I hope I can get that done for him."

But Hardy admits that his meetings and involvement never hinged on playing the famous road warrior in particular: "The audition process had nothing to do with Max and nothing to do with the story or the script. It was unorthodox to the point where actually I could have been auditioning for anything. It was an anonymous read. [Miller and I] haven't actually gotten into the conversation at all about Max."

This is contrary to initial reports that Hardy would indeed slip on the leathers as the new Max in the sequel, reportedly set "a short while after the story detailed in 1985’s MAD MAX BEYOND THUNDERDOME, which keeps Mad Max relatively young." (Charlize Theron is also attached.)

But there still remains the question of whether Mel Gibson is secretly returning and everyone is just being coy about it. The consensus from fans seems to be that the movie shouldn't be made without Mel as Max, but we'll see if the character's creator agrees...

Mad Max should be all Australian,i like what i have seen of Hardy but it doesn't sit well with me.When you grow up in this part of the world these films are a right of passage and pure australian cinema.

I just hope...

Theron doesnt play Max's girlfriend. Max had a wife, but that was before he was mad. At this point in the charectars life, he doesnt need a love interest.

I find it a little sad that there aren't any more Australian actors in the movie. I'm not disregarding any of the international cast's talent, but Mad Max is one of 'our' (Australian) movies that had predominantly Australian actors.

We'll have to wait and see then I suppose.

Not sure if I would worry too much. I know George Miller himself has mentioned before he wants to help develop the Australian film industry further along. I imagine he's had thoughts similar to what you said, Tagia.

I really hope they do find a way to bring Mel back and maybe have Tom on as possibly a villain.

Bring Gibson back!

He IS Mad Max. No other can replace him. If Willis, Stallone, & Ford could come back and kick ass, then so can Gibson.

Im still hoping that it takes place a while after Thunderdome, with hardy as the feral boy from road warrior and max making a cameo at the end as a old, broken "Clint Eastwood in UNforgiven" type character.

At least I think that would be the best way
