Tom Hardy teases additional Mad Max: Fury Road filming is more than simple reshoots

Nov. 1, 2013by: Alex Maidy

Rumors have abounded that George Miller's MAD MAX: FURY ROAD was going overbudget and past the shooting schedule. The third sequel in the MAD MAX series and the first without star Mel Gibson has a lot going for it in stars Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, but to date we have seen nothing more than a single official photo of Hardy in character and some set photos of the massive vehicles used in the movie.

Now word is coming straight from Tom Hardy himself that MAD MAX: FURY ROAD is in the process of additional filming. But, Hardy clarifies these aren't just reshoots. Here are Hardy's full comments as told to Flicks and the City:

"(Mad Max)'s great. It's a big old piece, it's a behemoth of a piece. I'm off there next week to do some reshoots, well not reshoots actually, but doing more. We're building, building more Mad Maxes, even more spectacular and cool stuff."

Now, for a long time we heard that MAD MAX: FURY ROAD was going to be shot back to back with a sequel to be called MAD MAX: FURIOSA. Those plans were dropped and the budget skyrocketed, but now it seems that maybe the studio either has faith in the project once again or at least wants to get their money's worth. Either way, I hope this is not a cheap ploy to try and force a franchise starter in MAD MAX: FURY ROAD.

As of right now, MAD MAX: FURY ROAD still has no release date but expect to see it sometime in 2014.

That is how i live my life, what would Tom Hardy do. Even if it takes another few years I'll still watch it.

I like Tom Hardy and I'm excited for this, but it seems like this has been taking forever to make and come out.

This is bad news, and I knew it was going to happen.

There was an interview with the film's cinematographer, and he said that George Miller is shooting everything with a "fix it in post" attitude. He said that there was no continuity in the lighting (some outside shots were dark & cloudy and the reverse shots were bright and sunny) and he was worried, but Miller convinced him that today's technology can fix that on computers with post-digital lighting. I'm sorry, but there are limits to what can be done in post before the image starts to look

I'm sorry, but there are limits to what can be done in post before the image starts to look like a CGI cartoon. Even the guys conducting the interview seemed shocked at what sounds like reckless unplanned shooting. The moment I heard that interview I said to myself "this film is going to have some heavy reshoots".

Excited for this even though it feels like this film has been in production forever.

I am still sort of hoping that Tom Hardy turns out to be the feral kid from Road Warrior all grown up pretending to be Max while searching for the real Mel-Max who he finds in the epilogue/conclusion living a peaceful "Eastwood before Unforgiven starts" life.

Oh shit that would be awesome. Imagine a team up with Mel and Hardy for the sequel, that shit would be epic!

I'm still confident...

To have the original director involved, ppsyched to see Hardy in what I'm sure will be a respectable Max, and a possible Mel cameo it doesn't have to set the world on fire in terms of money to me. Just give me something I yearn to spend ten bucks and 2 hours of my time in an intimate post-apocalyptic world and I'm a happy camper. Get thing thing out already for this fanboy to see...
