Mad Max director George Miller recently did a press junket in which he made some major announcements regarding the fourth Mad Max film called Fury Road. Filming production starts NEXT WEEK on the movie, with major filming set to start in 2010.
Filming on Fury Road will begin in New South Wales in August 2010.
And casting for the lead role is already underway, with the big question being whether Mel Gibson is set to return as the star.
Miller is staying tight-lipped about who he would like to take the lead, however it is rumoured Australian Sam Worthington and South African actress Charlize Theron will star.
Around 30 weeks of the filming of Fury Road will take place in and around Broken Hill.
The original Mad Max was filmed in Victoria, Mad Max 2 was filmed around Broken Hill and the third Mad Max was shot in Coober Pedy, South Australia.
I am not a big fan of Sam Worthington at all. I think he's crap at acting and would be a bid detriment to the film. Just bring back Mel.
