Plot details are in on the newest Mad Max installment. The series was first made popular with Mel Gibson starring in the films from 1979-1985. Fury Road will star ridiculous voice-actor Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) as Max Rockatansky and gorgeous oscar-winner Charlize Theron (Snow White and the Huntsman) as Imperator Furiosa. The movie will be written and directed by ‘Mad Max’ creator, George Miller.
According to Miller, “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.”
“Mad Max: Fury Road” also 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.
Mad Max 4: Fury Road is currently being filmed in Namibia, Africa.
