Writer and director George Miller has plans to start shooting his two upcoming films, Mad Max: Fury Road and Mad Max: Furiosa back-to-back in early 2012.
This is the latest update from Miller, who is spearheading the relaunch of the Mad Max film franchise which originally starred Mel Gibson in the title role. Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Tom Hardy, Teresa Palmer, Adelaide Clemens and Riley Keough are all set to star in Fury Road, while only Hardy is currently signed on for Furiosa. Miller explained what caused the production’s most recent delay.
Mad Max: Fury Road will hopefully hit theaters in late 2012; Mad Max: Furiosa is eying a 2013 release.
