    Mad Max: Fury Road is now in the early stages of pre-production. This will be the fourth installment in the series that began with Mad Max and was continued by Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome. To maintain setting it too will be filmed in Australia:

    <blockquote>Aussie film director George Miller says pre-production work will start next week on the latest Mad Max film, which is to be produced in New South Wales.

    Thirty years after the release of the original Mad Max, Miller is preparing to head out west for Fury Road - the fourth installment of the popular franchise.

    Filming on Fury Road will begin in NSW in August 2010.

    Casting for the lead role is already underway, but the big question is whether Mel Gibson is set to return as the star.

    Miller is staying tight-lipped about who he would like to take the lead.</blockquote>

    Wasn't this already scrapped year or two ago? Then they decided to do animated Mad Max 4 or something?

    Fuck Mel Gibson.

    Yeah I did a double take when I read there was a PA movie called Fallout coming out.... but no it's not our fallout (After seeing Hitman this is not really a bad thing, though). Frontier(s) was a pretty darn good flick though, so it's not like all hope is lost. But it'll probably just be a torture porn set in a dystopian New York (Anyone else hope they never remake Escape From New York?)

    Anyway, it's good to hear something I actually like about Fury Road for once. This film has been paved on bad ideas and misfortune. A CGI film? Nah. An Anime? NO THANK YOU. That freaking war down in south africa was the final nail in the coffin for a long time. Wasn't Heath Ledger cast during this try at production? Not as Max, but as the dude Max, I guess, passes the torch to?

    And whatever happened to the Mad Max game. One of the main God of War developers left Sony to form his own studio and make a mad max game. Seeing a Mad Max game with GoW style gameplay would suck, sure, but think about how much GoW influenced the beat-em up brawler games.

    Ah well, I'm really rooting for Fury Road to be the badass PA adventure story we all know it CAN be, but in the meantime The Road looks pretty damn good.

    lol, Book of Eli looks like ass.

    I hear rumors that Sam Worthington will be playing the lead, he was the only good part of Terminator 4.

    I saw that to. More info here

    Here's hoping it will end up like either the first or the second and not like the abomination that was Thunderdome.

    He's a crazy SOB but he does well when that's his role in movies. Mel needs to play Max, it just wouldn't be right without him.

    God of War is extremely overrated, Devil May Cry is a superior series (2 obviously excluded) and I see little that it could offer to a Mad Max game.

    I don't expect much from the sequel given that it's been 24 years since a Mad Max movie has been released and I fear that the franchise might end up in the same place as Terminator. Sequelitis is a nasty thing.

    Mel Gibson is Mad Max, still traveling the roads after twenty years, in a souped-up wheelchair :P

    Mel is to old for the role if you ask me. But without Mel its not a Mad Max movie.

    And as Garlic said. I fear it will be a "fast trash for a few bugs" movie like Terminator 3+4.

    I can see it now:

    Shortly after releasing Mad Max 4 the movie, Bethsoft acquires game rights and releases the next tie-in GOTY title:

    Well, the cars look pretty cool for all 0:20 they show them. The one with the super-huge blower is kind of reminiscent of FO2.
