Are you ready for more Mad Max? Well, ask your local weatherman to make it happen. He alone has the power to get the forth installment of this series underway, because Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller is ready to shoot in January 2012… unless there’s rain.

“We will restart pre-production later this year and begin early next year—weather permitting,” Miller said acknowledging the year-long delay he and Warner Bros. had agreed on. “We’ve built the vehicles. We’ve designed the movie. The principal cast is locked in. The film is funded. It’s all ready to go. We just wait.”

This film has been in a pre-production post-apocalypse for years and years. I know everything’s in place, and that Tom Hardy (Inception) and Charlize Theron are locked in, though previously attached Teresa Palmer (I Am Number Four) is now driving away from this movie on her motorcycle. Still, somehow I get the feeling this is never gonna happen, especially if rain is gonna stop them. Would rain stop Max Rockatansky from road-battling Bubba and Toecutter? (The Playlist)

‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Won’t Start Its Engine Until at Least Early 2012 http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mad-max-fury-road-wont-start-its-engine-until-at-least-early-2012/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mad-max-fury-road-wont-start-its-engine-until-at-least-early-2012/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Yay, more Mad Max: Fury Road delay news. Just the other day we reported that Charlize Theron might shed her arm for the film, and now it seems production isn't anticipated to begin until February 2012. But how will I quench my insatiable Charlize amputee fetish?! George Miller is having worse luck with Mad Max than Terry Gilliam is with bringing a Don Quixote story to the screen. Some powerful force does not want these projects seen by the world. I'm aware of the curse on adapting Quixote, but the troubles with Mad Max's production are perplexing. All I can guess is that somewhere Mel Gibson is surrounded by candles and lamb's blood uttering satanic prayers over a picture of Tom Hardy. (/Film)

‘Mad Max’ Will Cost Charlize Theron One Arm http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mad-max-will-cost-charlize-theron-one-arm/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mad-max-will-cost-charlize-theron-one-arm/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 This picture was created with the finest equipment 1987 had to offer... Normally when you think of a post-apocalyptic landscape, you don't think of women as hot as Charlize Theron running around. It seems that director George Miller took this into account after he cast Theron for the Mad Max reboot. Charlize won't quite be a 10 in this movie. Really more of a 9.8. ABC Australia has confirmed that Theron's character in Mad Max: Fury Road will be missing part of her arm (presumably the bottom), with one-armed swimmer Annabelle Williams working as her stunt double. Hmmm, strange that a one-armed swimmer would need to pick up outside work. (via Coming Soon)
