Fury Road is the newest, and long anticipated Mad Max movie. The newest entry into the Road Warrior franchise is now aiming for a 2014 release date, and production is finally wrapped up. The cast and crew has been added so many times over the last 5 years, it has been hard keeping up. We have been covering the release of this movie since it was announced way back in 2009. From script to official release in 2014, Fury Road has been 5 long years in the making, so will it be worth all this trouble, and what famous characters will be back?
Mad Max 4 – Fury Road
Note : This new Mad Max Movie has been moved to a 2014 release, and has been in production since 2009…. tons of holdups, casting and production delays have made Fury Road quite the project spanning years now.
George Miller is back in the Director/Writer chair for the upcoming Mad Max movie, Fury Road. Fury Road will be shot in Sydney and New South Wales next year, with a budget in the region of $100 million.
The plot isn’t official, but the casting is, and you can see below who is in the movie. You already know the plot though, a lack of petroleum and the power to regain control of it. One thing we do know is, Mad Max 4 will be in 3D.
Director George Miller just released this statement about Fury Road
“We are doing 3D on Fury Road– we are shooting with real 3D cameras,” Miller said. “Seven years ago we were going to shoot in 3D but the technology in cinemas wasn’t geared for it then but I always loved 3D.”
Mel Gibson in Fury Road?
You probably are curious if Mel Gibson is in the new Mad Max movie, and the answer is…yes! Mel is playing a drifter in the movie, on a lesser scale as previously mentioned. After Mel’s well publicized meltdown , he has taken a lesser role in the film, which is unfortunate. He should be one of the main characters and not relegated to a supporting role, in a movie he made so incredibly popular back in the day. However Tom Hardy will do a wonderful job as the new Max, he’s the perfect choice.
Update : Mad Max 4 is a 2014 release date now! Fury Road has been delayed and delayed…. hope they get it right.
Who’s In Fury Road?
Tom Hardy – Max Rockatansky
Riley Keough –
Also, Riley Keough .. the grandchild of Elvis Presley… she’s in it. How cool is that? Riley is making the big turn from modeling to acting. Even though this is still listed as a ‘rumor’ on a few sites, we have been told that Riley will indeed commit to being in the new Fury Road. Riley and Charlize? Can’t wait. Keough was in The Runaways as well, so this isn’t her first crack at acting. I bet Grandpa would be proud.

What’s Good About It?
The ‘Mad Max’ franchise was one of the best in its day, with wonderful action and a great storyline. Director George Miller is planning to take as long as a year to build the badass vehicles. This means Mad Max 4 just isn’t being thrown together, they are going to knock this thing out of the park.
What’s Bad About It?
We are always a little worried about rebooting a franchise.
Remember the ‘Ferel Kid’ in the 1981 Mad Max movie? That little shit with the boomerang? That kid is 38 years old now. That’s how old you got since Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior (1981) .
