Mad Max: Fury Road was the breakout hit of 2015 catapulting Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron to even high stardom (not that they needed it). Almost as soon as it was released fans started talking about a sequel and while it seemed like an obvious move, details have largely been scarce and unconfirmed so far.
That could be all about to change though, as Tom Hardy recently confirmed that he’s definitely signed on for two movie Mad Max movies, and that the first is currently titled Mad Max: The Wasteland. Speaking to Collider to promote his new TV show, Taboo, Hardy had this to say:
I’m anxiously waiting to find out. There’s mythology to do with Mad Max that spans copious amounts of tales. What’s wonderful about George [Miller] is that he’s created sagas for Max and sagas for Furiosa, so it’s what he chooses to focus in on. I’m really just waiting for the call like, ‘All right, let’s get the leathers on and get back out there and do some more.’ It’s there. I’m just waiting for it and looking forward to it.
He made no promises that the title of the sequel would remain the same though, stating: “Yeah, as far as [I know] I’ve signed to do three of them. It’s a question of when. I’m not sure it’s called The Wasteland or not because you never know. These titles change all the time. But, there’s definitely another Mad Max project pending.”
He also added a shout out to Mad Max director George Miller: “I love working with George [Miller] and the fact that his mythology is so deep. It’s a joy to work with an artist and somebody who has the ability to be a movie maker, as well. It’s the full package, isn’t it?”
I couldn’t have said it better myself.
