Mad Max 4 Tom Hardy

Tom Hardy in Mad Max Fury RoadThe lucky actor Tom Hardy got the lead role in the upcoming Mad Max 4 movie, aka Mad Max Fury Road. He gave a few more details about the film:

"It's a relaunch and revisit to the world, an entire restructuring. That's not to say that it's not picking up or leaving off from the Mad Max you know already, but it's a nice re-take on the entire world using the same character, depositing him in the same world, but bringing him up to date by 30 years. Obviously Mel would've been perfect for it but, for some reason, he's not doing it and I am. You can expect the same amount of grit and rawness and authenticity to my performance, I hope to deliver. But that's really the crux of me and George to deliver that and all the other actors as the other characters.
I think the boys that did Lord of the Rings are involved and all that kind of stuff as well. CGI is not going to be — I think it's going to be much more like Christopher Nolan, how he deals with action - these things are going to be really there. Big rigs, big explosions, big car crashes, big violence, you know."

Sounds like they're kind of rebooting Mad Max... Well, I guess that Max Rockatansky has to be reintroduced to the public after all those years. Hopefully Tom Hardy's take on the character will solid enough to grant the start of a new Mad Max franchise.
