MAD MAX: FURY ROAD (Now w/ 100% More Awesome)

Postby thx777b on Sun Apr 09, 2006 7:17 am

What the hell is going on with FURY ROAD:MAD MAX 4? Is it really still in pre-production or is it dead? If anyone knows anything, please say something!

It's still on the horizon I think, Hopefully "Happy Feet" will make enough money for George Miller to go ahead with this next, whether or not he can convince Gibson to return is another matter though.

Do you think they could continue the story with another actor in the lead or if Gibson turns it down would you rather see a different character in the same world? Maybe the Ferral Kid all grown up, his life influenced by Max, I know he gives the narration in Road Warrior as an old man so would that make it too complicated?

I know I just want it to have a good low budget look. I just like the idea of abandoned places and the dangers of the road, survival horror without the zombies I guess.

I've got fond memories too of the Freeway Warrior fighting fantasy book, it captured the post-apocalyptic atmosphere really well. One man alone, struggling to survive and making sure he keeps himself stocked up with gas.

I don't think its ever going to happen.

Don't worry, though. What with where the world seems
to be headed (c/o The Powers That Should Not Be), we'll
all be living in THE ROAD WARRIOR soon enough.

Seriously, the prolouge to THE ROAD WARRIOR is actually
happening now. Kinda makes watching a movie about it
seem almost irrelevant.

Dont get me wrong chaps - I LOVVVVVED the 1st two films - I just hated number 3.

Tina Turner is a hairy axe wound - I think I was the only one in the cinema cheering when Ike was kicking the shite out of Angela Bassett during 'What's love got to do with it'.

But thats just me

Tina isn't all that bad, and "Thunderdome" was entertaining in a saturday morning cartoon kinda way. now, Madonna, there is a no-talent skank that deserves to go a few rounds with Ike Turner.

I love all three, but the Third on was campy fun versus the more serious First and more fun Second.

did that make any sense?

anywho, Fury Road (fucking awesome title) must be made.

Well, there's another way to look at this:
Arnie was a HUGE part of the Terminator's success, as was Weaver's in the first two alien movies. But so was James Cameron and Ridley Scott.

If you are going to take away the franchise actor, that's bad. Take away the frachise director, that's bad too. Take away both and you get Aliens vs Predator.

At least this latest Mad Max movie will still have George Miller, who created the whole thing to begin with.

I'm willing to give it a shot to be made* as long as Miller thinks its worth doing.

He's really not, and although I'm pretty happy with the existing 'trilogy', I think A fourth movie with a grizzled old Max Rocketenski could still be pretty interesting.

I'm keen to see anything Miller might want to do in the world of Mad Max that he created.

I've seen both Eric Bana and Nathan Fillion suggested in the talk backs for the role of Max; both pretty intriguing proposals, although I'd probably prefer Bana. Russel Crowe is a pretty obvious choice, but I bet he'd be a great fit too (think of him in Romper Stomper)

Who the hell carries around $8,000 in nickels? You must have big pockets.

And strong legs.

what if they didn't replace the Max character, but rather passed the torch in some way, like a guy finding Max dead or dying to start the movie, or even having a guy who is an illegitimate kid from Max's wasteland travels who somehow discovers his legacy. i don't know, i'm just spitballing here........

Maybe this movie will take place between 2 and 3... I mean, gasoline had pretty much run out by 3, right? I'm thinking "Fury Road" is going to be closer to 2nd movie...

Anyway, if that's the case, Mel would be too old to play the character.

Uh, I love The Road Warrior, they should just leave it alone... I don't think they can top it.

I'm not sure what's worse, this or a re-make.

What about having the Feral Kid from Road Warrior all grown up as a wild-ass Feral Man? Someone so badass he makes Max look very un-Mad. Someone who deals with even uglier post-apocalyptic threats than Humungous and his gang. Like human-sacrificing cannibals, or something. Make it like a gasoline-powered Australian Apocalypto at 120 miles per hour.

Or not. Whatever.

Feral Kid grows up to be the narrator at the beginning and the end of Road Warrior.

And So_Sorry, i totally agree. A re-make would be worse, but an unnecessary sequel can tarnish the original...

Didn't Mel supposedly say he wanted Ledger to play his son in a fourth Max film? Or was that fanboy bullshit?

We Don't Need Another Hero may be one of the best 80's "I Wrote This For The Film" songs ever. That and Madonna's "Live To Tell." Actually, Live To Tell is a far better song. I'm not a big fan of children chorus sections in songs. I have to stop listening to Another Brick In The Wall when that part pops up.

My cousin was one of the kids singing in that song. He was also in the video. They went to his school in Islington, London and recruited a bunch of children from his class.


I'd love to see another Mad Max. I really liked Beyond Thunderdome; I dug what most people disliked and disliked what most people dug. Mad Max and the kids was quite good- not necessarily the direction I would have taken the series in, but still pretty watchable- while the actual Thunderdome itself kind of reminded me of all those dodgy '80s sci-fi b-movies I watched as a kid. Still, at least it inspired the Public Enemy Song, Welcome to the Terrordome. Also, the flight into the sunset at the end was strangely touching for a Mad Max movie.

If they do make another Mad Max, they have to bring back Bruce Spence. Otherwise it'd be like Led Zeppelin reforming for No Quarter and forgetting to invite John Paul Jones along. He may not have been in the original Mad Max, but he was one of the best things about the sequels. It's especially important that they cast another Australian as I imagine that in order to pay Mel Gibson's wage, the movie would probably be an American venture. The unsentimental Aussie humour was what I loved about the original so much.

Also, hidden in a press release from May is the following: “Omnilab Media has also created a new digital film company with Kennedy Miller Mitchell to use groundbreaking digital storytelling, animation and visual effects. This will include HAPPY FEET 2, BABE 3 & MAD MAX 4 and a range of other blue-chip properties in development.” That’s right, Mad Max 4!

I still have no idea why Gibson is not considering this. Especially now that news is out that he wants to reprise Lethal Weapon.

I think it's easier for audiences to accept Mel back as Mad Max than as Riggs, or should I say what Riggs became in Lethal 3 & 4. Mad Max is more a bad good guy, and since the public has such mixed feelings on Mel they'd probably be more receptive to him as an anti-hero than as the golden boy goodguy cop the Riggs character became by the end of the Lethal series.

But if Mel won't do it, I'll still see it. Maybe they'll get Eric Bana, he was great in Chopper.

It's a nitro-burnin' suicide machine! The toecutter, he knows me...

I always figured, since I read it last year, that Alan Moore lifted a certain move that Rorscach made in 'Watchmen' from the original Mad Max...

Even though Lethal Weapon 4 was cheesy, it was a conclusion and really felt like the final Lethal Weapon movie, so it seems really strange to me that they're making a 5th. But it's Shane Black so you know he's got something special up his sleeve.

But as for Mad Max, the end of Mad Max 3 didn't feel like the end of this character. I figured he would ride off and have a million more adventures. So I think a 4th movie where a lot of time has gone by would be great. The film could fill us in on what Max's been up to and also give him a new final adventure. Ya know, like a story that expands in two directions like Terminator 2 did?

As far as I've heard, this would be the final Mad Max film, and it would be nice to see a real conclusion for this character. And that's my only objection to recasting the lead role. If they're planning on doing a bunch more, then let Mel step aside and some new guy (Eric Bana) take over, but if this is the last one they've gotta get Mel back.

And has anybody heard any comment on Bana concerning this project? I doubt I'm the only one who would've thought of him for this role.

And they need Geoffory Rush in there somewhere, he'd be killer in a Mad Max flick.

Oh God no. Do they think anybody is going to be happy about this. Seriously, Get Eric Bana to play Max, Walter Hill to direct, and all is well.
