has been languishing in development hell for some time now, but finally, it’s looking as though George Miller’s labour of love is up and running in earnest.
Having initially been scheduled to begin filming in the Australian outback in 2011, the project was delayed when adverse weather conditions ruined the dusty, desert-like conditions Miller was looking for.
Not to be put off, Miller has now relocated the project to Africa, with cameras set to begin rolling in Namibia in April. Tom Hardy and Charlize are still thought to be in place as the two leads, but perhaps more excitingly, the first images of the film’s vehicles have arrived online.
Pleasingly, they look every bit as badass as the souped-up battle-wagons of the original movie series. We particularly like the skull effect on the front grill of the vehicle with the snow-plough attachment…
Miller is still planning Mad Max: Fury Road as the first movie in a trilogy, so lets hope he can get this one in the can with no further interruptions. Otherwise he’ll be six feet under before the third one ever sees the light of day…
