Sit seems that Brit Actor Tom Hardy will play Max Rockatansky (aka Mad Max)......he's a great actor but I would have rathered an Aussie play the role given its an Australian movie series set in Australia. Someone like Sam Worthington from Terminator Salvation & Clash of the Titans would have been a great choice.
Anyway it will be interesting to see where they will take the series with "Fury Road". There was talk that the movies production was in trouble but things seem to be progressing with filming actualy commencing back in July in Namibia.
The title suggests it will be a return of those awesome high octane V8 interceptors and car scenes of the original movie....but if this is a sequal to Mad Max 3, I don't know how it will all work as I thought that gasoline (petrol) had all but disappeared.
Bring on 2013!
