The reboot of Mad Max, Fury Road, hasn’t had an easy time heading back to the big screen. The film was supposed to have wrapped back in December 2012, but as we just reported here on TGD, it just had to go back for some recent reshoots.
This definitely makes it a long time to wait for a new Mad Max flick, and it’s hard to think of a movie’s release date being held up this long. It’s usually not a good sign, but who knows? There have been several movies that were practically remade from scratch. As we saw recently with World War Z, the whole third act was redone late in production, and the film still turned out alright.
Still, however long it takes, we’re still curious to see what a modern day Mad Max could look like. Hardy’s a good choice to play Max, and we indeed hope that like he told the press, they’re “doing more” with the film, “building even more spectacular and cool stuff.”
