A month after the film finally started shooting after years of delay after delay, George Miller and company have finally found the time to put out an official press release announcing the start of production on “Mad Max: Fury Road”. The film actually commenced shooting more than a month ago, if you can believe it.

Here’s the official plot:

Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived.

Tom Hardy“Word Burgers of the History Men”? Hunh.

Besides Tom Hardy as Mad Max and Charlize Theron as Imperator Furiosa, the film also co-stars Nicholas Hoult (“X-Men: First Class”) as Nux; Hugh Keays-Byrne (“Mad Max,” “Sleeping Beauty”) as Immortan Joe; and Nathan Jones (“Conan the Barbarian”) as Rictus Erectus. Collectively known as The Wives, Zoe Kravitz (“X-Men: First Class”) plays Toast, Riley Keough (“Magic Mike”) is Capable, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”) is Splendid.

They are joined by supermodel Abbey Lee Kershaw as The Dag and Courtney Eaton as Fragile, both of whom are making their big screen debuts. Also featured in the movie are Josh Helman as Slit, Jennifer Hagan as Miss Giddy, and singer/songwriter/performer iOTA as Coma-Doof Warrior.

The cast is rounded out by well-known Australian actors John Howard, Richard Carter, supermodel Megan Gale, Angus Sampson, Joy Smithers, Gillian Jones, Melissa Jaffer and Melita Jurisic.

    Sure they will blow the raw drama of what is Mad Max and make a forgettable over the top FLOP

    Also, Mel IS Max.Not sayin he should play it at his age, just sayin it will never be the same.Hardy is a fine actor and what an honor to play Max, can’t blame him.But A list actors and a huge budget is a harbinger of this being a bad movie and I hope I’m surpised and wrong as I am a huge fan.But even in the glitz of Thunderdome(least fav) you never lost Mel as being Max. That role is his.

    No Mel, no me. You could have had him as Max’s last drive. But no, you took the coward’s way out. Shame.

    Hough Keyes Byrne is in this and in my opinion is the best actor the franchise has ever known so lets see what happens!!!
