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