Chalize Theron Gives Update & Talks Violence in 'MAD MAX: FURY ROAD'!

It has been a very long time since we have heard any news regarding George Miller's long awaited & much anticipated Mad Max: Fury Road the Mad Max reboot which is set to begin filming in a matter of weeks. Well today we have some! /Film caught up with actress Chalize Theron at the world premier for Ridely Scott's Prometheus in London. The actress revealed how the script had changed through development, how violent it will be & how her character is different from anything she’s ever done before. Mad Max: Fury Road also stars Tom Hardy, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Teresa Palmer, Adelaide Clemens & Riley Keough. Hit the jump for the details.

Q: I’m really looking forward to a certain 'Mad Max' movie that is coming up. What can you tell people about that project and when do you begin filming?

Charlize Theron: " I leave in like two and a half weeks and we start shooting I think around mid-July in Namibia. I’m fucking dying, too, it’s been three years. It’s time to skin this cat already, so yeah, I’m very excited about it."

Q: To follow-up on that project obviously it’s been start, stop, start, stop. Is the script that you were given all that time ago exactly what you’re still doing?

Charlize Theron: "Yes, exactly the same script. I know. It was more logistics. It was the fact that he had to finish “Happy Feet.” Then there was terrible floods in Australia, and the desert just never recovered from it. That sounds horrible. It did recover in a beautiful way, but not in a way that we needed it to, so that was a huge problem for us."

Q: What is it about that project that you’re looking forward to taking on?

Charlize Theron: "I think that just like this that’s an interesting world. I feel that I have a real interest in this world, and I think people will have an interest in this world because “Alien” kinda set that up for us. I feel like the original “Mad Max” created such a vivid world, that to go back and re-imagine it and kind of replay in that sandbox sounds like fun to me. George really created a female character that I’ve never read anything like this. I mean, I’m scared shitless, yeah."

Q: What is it he’s asking of you? Is it something you’ve never done?

Charlize Theron: "No, it’s a really challenging piece of material. I think for me originally when they were like, “Oh, ‘Mad Max.’” I was like, “Uh, I’m not going to play the fucking girl for ‘Mad Max.’” Then I read it and I was like, “Oh, ‘Mad Max.’ I feel sorry for you.” (Laughs) That rarely happens. It’s just really, it’s two great characters. It’s not the original “Mad Max.” It’s the revamped “Mad Max.” It’s Tom Hardy, who’s incredible. So, the whole thing is just exciting, very, very exciting."

Q: Is [Mad Max] one of those films where it’s going to be PG-13, or are you guys pushing for  a hard R? Do you know?

Charlize Theron: "I can’t say. I mean, ultimately it’s going to be up to George Miller, but it feels like…"

Q: I know there’s some violence.

Charlize Theron: "Yeah, yeah, there’s some bad-ass violence in it. I mean, if we do what the script is, I don’t know how you can do, but then I feel like PG-13 is pushing a little bit, too, which is good. It feels like—I don’t know. I remember being like, young watching “Alien” and loving it."
