Director George Miller spoke to The Sydney Morning Herald in response to the stories of Mad Max: Fury Road being indefinitely delayed. Miller promises that the film will “definitely” get made. The director also reaffirms that Warner Bros. are fully behind the project, and that his lead stars remain attached despite the change of schedule.
Miller goes on to state:
"Unfortunately for Mad Max, what was wasteland is now this wonderful flower garden… We’ve looked at every single nook and cranny in Australia for these specific locations… Broken Hill has become such a base for outback films: you’ve got the infrastructure of the city itself and the treeless plains beyond. Obviously if we go to Namibia or Morocco or Chile it’s a different kettle of fish, but we want to shoot it here."
Miller confirmed that Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron would star when the film gets going in “July at the earliest and more likely September-October.” Miller also revealed some new casting news that Hugh Keays-Byrne will be reprising the role of Toecutter from the first Max.
