The original Mad Max took us to a post-apocalyptic land. In this continuation of the film franchise, Hardy steps into the role of "Mad" Max Rockatansky, originally portrayed by Mel Gibson.
“It was mental in a brilliant way,” Hardy told Entertainment Weekly about the seven-month shoot, which took place in the Namibian desert. “You have no concrete, no coffee shops. We were in the middle of a sandpit.”
Hardy, alongside shaven headed Theron, as the Imperator Furiosa, fight man and element in a desolate wasteland. According to Miller, “I wanted to tell a linear story–a chase that starts as the movie begins and continues for 110 minutes.”
The movie has been in production for several years but has been cloaked in secrecy.
Hardy has previously been seen in Inception, Locke, and The Dark Knight Rises. Theron is known for her roles in Monster, The Italian Job and North Country.
Mad Max: Fury Road is the fourth film of Road Warrior/ Mad Max franchise by Australian filmmaker George Miller, according to Indiewire. It has been 35 years since the original film.
Will the new film be as bold as the original? Fans will have to wait to see. Mad Max: Fury Road will be in theaters in May 2015.
