A fourth Mad Max movie has been threatened for a long time now, but I didn’t start to take it seriously until The Daily Telegraph confirmed the production and director George Miller (who directed the first three) went on ABC news (the Australian one) to talk about it. He says that despite the recent rumors about Charlize Theron and Bronson‘s Tom Hardy, no cast is confirmed. I’ve got the whole clip after the jump, but I wouldn’t recommend watching it because it’s really boring and the screencap above is about as much of the cars as you’re going to see.
Why am I not excited for Mad Max 4? Because they’ve already made this movie 100 times. George Miller made it three times himself. Neil Marshall made it last year, it was called Doomsday (for comparison, watch this clip and then watch this), with Rhona Mitra playing Mel Gibson. The original starred Mel Gibson as a cop wandering through a barren wasteland following an apocalyptic war. It’s a timeless story, because as any Gibson will tell you, the Jews are always starting wars. The only solution is having an awesome car.
UPDATE: THR has seemingly confirmed the production, reporting it has $100 million budget without studio backing. And no, I don’t know how that’s possible either.
