[ Film & TV -> Update ]

Director George Miller still plans on making Mad Max 4, but without Mel Gibson.

"We were about three months off shooting [Mad Max 4] when the Iraqi war came and the American dollar collapsed against the Australian dollar so we lost our budget. Also, we couldn't get the container ships out because of security and stuff," says Miller, confirming that Mel Gibson was attached to reprise his role at that stage.

He'll next shoot a "small film," but says then he'll most likely return to "Max."

"Though I think there will be another Mad Max; the time has gone where Mel can be in it. I think the last opportunity was about four years ago and you know the character's lean and hungry. He was twenty one when he first played Mad Max and he's now in his fifties. Also I think he's much more interested in what's happening behind camera than in front. It needs a lean and hungry actor and he's not into acting so much anymore and I think he just loves producing, writing and directing. But I think if fates allow there will be another Mad Max though it is certainly two films away for me, but the time's gone when Mel can run around the wasteland anymore."

A Mad Max without Mel Gibson? Why waste anybody's time? Personally my favorite Max movie is The Roadwarrior. The first one was incredible but the second one is definitely my favorite. Beyond Thunderdome just blows.

Mad Max 4 on the horizon? It will be the LOTR to FO3's Oblivion.

Get the Mad Max 1.1 patch, it removes the time limit so Mel can still get the part.

I say bullshit. Though Mad Max was hardly the kind of character to grow old, the first and only Mad Max character in the movie by name/title should be Mel. So, even if the 'main' character protagonist-type of the movie is someone else, Max the character should always be Mel. That's my stupid opinion, anyways.

Actually Mel COULD play max, since even munchkins were able to perform stunts in the movie...

But I think Mel is just an old alcoholic christian fart and too lazy to rock the Australian wasteland.

Get bloody fucked, mate!

Probably a good call; Mel's image isn't that badass anymore. Perhaps they should replace the main character with Mad Max's son or daughter or whatever.

I really doubt Mel would do a fourth one but I'm sure they can find a young austrialian guy that has his kind of look to play the part. They shouldn't even call it Mad Max maybe something else, but who knows Mel did do 4 lethal weapons movies.

I was actually following the production of the movie about three years ago. I think the closest they got to getting it made was around the same time. They actually had Mel interested in returning and there were alot of rumors involving Heath Ledger as Max's son or sidekick or something.
They had a script done too. It involved some kind of virus and Max had to escort a caravan of uninfected people across the deserts of future-Australia. But Mel decided to do Passion of The Christ instead and the whole thing really slowed down. I eventually gave up hope of a Mad Max 4. The 3rd one sucked balls anyway.
I doubt if there will ever be a fourth.

For the record, I also blame the Jews. For alot of things. icon_dizzy

Mel is always the only Mad Max for me, but he sure as hell can't act him any future films that's for sure... The guy's in his fifties, for crying out loud! "OOoh, dogmeat, bring me my cane so I can get over there and beat sense into those youngsters' heads"

I'm hoping he'll be too busy raping the Joker to rape Mad Max.

I really want that script to be leaked. I've heard little details about the story, but it's basically a suped up version of Road Warrior.

Steven Seagal would do fine as Mel.

I s'pose they asked Mel to take the part, but he was drunk at the moment and asked "ama gonna kick some jew ass in dat flick or NOT?! eh? *hickup*" so they had to turn him down rolleyes

Heath Ledger as Gibson's son? Didn't they already do that for The Patriot? Sounds like a bullshit script to me.

I say that we simply nuke the last continent for real and see who comes up on top, THAT will be the next Mad Max! Who knows how many directors the shoot will go through before they find one that the psychopath likes but the movie would be AMAZING hehe.
