Mad Max: Fury Road is going back for three more weeks of additional filming

09.03.2013

It has been almost 30 years since we last had a new MAD MAX movie, so what is a few more months? The long in development MAD MAX: FURY ROAD starring Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron ran into budget issues as the six month Namibian shoot ballooned out of control. Executives dismissed it as nothing to worry about, but we still haven't seen very much from the George Miller film outside of some vehicle photos and a blurry image of Hardy in character.

Now we are learning that MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is going to be doing some additional filming in Miller's native Australia with the principal cast in tow. These are not being called "reshoots" but rather additional filming which could just be a fancy way of saying reshoots. I would think that after six months of shooting and almost a year since that ended that the filmmakers would have known what they had and what they still needed to get. The budget for MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is already north of $100 million so what we have now is the question of whether the movie is going to be good enough to make that money back. Miller was long rumored to be filming MAD MAX: FURY ROAD back to back with MAD MAX: FURIOSA. We haven't heard anything about that second chapter for a while so it is unknown what the hell is going on.

MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is still tentatively slated for a 2014 release, but I will temper my expectations until we actually get some hard evidence the movie is complete.

Well..

I'm gonna be an optimist and hope that this is to add in a badass opening action scene where Mel passes Tom the torch before he dies in a blaze of glory.

How could this movie possibly go over 100 million budget when 'Road Warrior" 1981 costed 2 million.
Are the actors taking 95% of the budget?

While additional filming isn't always a bad thing, we'll just have to wait & see when it finally comes out.

I completely forgot this movie was even happening, from how long its been in development and filming plus these reshoots it doesn't bode well for the quality. I hope it is good though just because I am a fan of Tom Hardy.

This movie won't be good, won't do well at the box office either.

I already miss Mel and mourn the missed opportunity of a grizzled older Max in the wasteland.

This movie isn't going to make its money back despite having Hardy and Theron as the leads. I just don't think people are going to "flock" to a new Mad Max film and therefore it will be a "one and done film".

Would like to be proven wrong though. It just seems like this film has been in development for the longest time.

Finally. At least they're not sitting doing nothing anymore. Not gonna get my hopes up for this one as the summer flicks disappointed me for the most.par,but Hardy.is a guy that can pull off badass like no other and still be able to act in other capacities.

This seems like it's been in the works for forever. I do hope they can drum up interest; it sounds like it could be a Dredd-like situation in which it's a good movie, but people just don't go to see it.
