Mel sorta on Mad Max

6 years agoby:

We've known MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is officially coming, and while director George Miller has stated it would be an Australian production, he hasn't said who was actually behind it. And the series' star Mel Gibson has been cagey when it comes to his own involvement.

Turns out they're tied together -- according to Moviehole, Gibson's company Icon Entertainment is co-producing the movie. Icon has a bit of clout, since they made a few bucks with THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST.

That doesn't necessarily mean Mel will slip on the leather again as lawman-turned-road warrior "Mad" Max Rockatansky, yet it's certainly more involved than what he told the Australian Herald Sun just last month about MAX: "Oh gosh, I don't know what [Miller] is up to."

And the movie's new star Tom Hardy apparently doesn't even know who he's playing, so the keys to the Interceptor would seem to be still up for grabs.

Extra Tidbit: Icon also produced Gibson's APOCALYPTO, along with the underappreciated western SERAPHIM FALLS and horror-comedy INFESTATION.

God, I hope this turns out the way I want it too. Hardy playing the feral kid from Road Warrior looking for Max, getting into trouble and finally finding Mel Gibson, Unforgiven-style, in a shack somewhere retired from busting head

If Gibson is playing Max again then I'll finally get excited for this film.

I thought they might try to entice Mel with a producer credit. I'm sure Mr. Miller is throwing whatever he can Mel's way to get him into those leathers again. Let's hope this news means he has succeeded.

I wish that Mel was still Max. You wouldn't recast Peter Venkman would you?
Sigh.

Seraphim Falls was amazing.

SUPER!

In Mel We Trust. I didn't know Seraphim Falls was given a low exposure but the film was solid.

Just tell us already!

The suspense is killing me. But being that Mel's company is involved is a good sign.
