It’s had a history of off-and-on progress almost as long as the rewriting for Ghostbusters 3, but thankfully the Mad Max franchise has never had to deal with Bill Murray. Finally, after 27 years of hold ups, as well as various writer and cast changes, George Miller has delivered us to the “Tomorrow-morrow Land” we’ve all been waiting for.
Get those shotgun shells saved up everyone, Mad Max: Fury Road has finally started shooting!
First shots from the set have been leaked for this new film. Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy is taking over the role synonymous with Mel Gibson. Co-starring alongside Hardy will be fellow Prometheus star Charlize Theron. This prequel to the Mad Max franchise will reportedly have Max protecting a group of women known as the “Five Wives” when a group of wasteland baddies tries to take down their caravan.
Check out the images below.
These images not only give us a little insight to the scale of the vehicles being used, like that tough-looking, black, gas-truck rig, but also some close-ups of several actresses in the cab of a vehicle. Could these ladies be the fabled “Five Wives?” Special thanks to Newscom for the close up shots, but other than that we have little to go on. We can’t wait to see what Tom is going to look like dressed as the former Main Force Patrol officer.
Here’s a theory though – even if this is called a “prequel” in the eyes of producers and the studio, could this film be an event that bridges the gap between Mad Max and Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior or the first in a possible prequel trilogy? Maybe, but as we said only a theory. What about you guys, any ideas as to just where this will take place?
