As you are no doubt aware, there is currently a Mad Max video game in development, being created by Avalanche Studios, the creators of Just Cause. But here’s something you may have forgotten: there’s also a fourth movie, Mad Max: Fury Road, currently in development, Directed by George Miller and starring Tom Hardy. Entertainment Weekly has gotten their hands on some cool looking new screens from the movie.
I think the surprise for me is that this movie is actually still getting made. George Miller’s Dr D Studios closed almost immediately after finishing Happy Feet 2, and Mad Max: Fury Road has been in development for years. It seemed like the movie would never actually get finished, but now it’s actually happening.
And these images? They give me real hope that this movie won’t be terrible. I’m a huge fan of Tom Hardy and I think him playing Mad Max is some seriously solid casting.
Perhaps the most exciting tidbit coming from early coverage of the movie, however, is this quote from George Miller:
I wanted to tell a linear story–a chase that starts as the movie begins and continues for 110 minutes,” says the Australian writer-director. Fury Road features few digital effects and even less dialogue, he explains. “In this crucible of very intense action, the characters are revealed.
A two hour car chase? Yeah, can’t wait for this.
