A new overseer has been assigned to the Namibia-based filming location of director George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road. Concerns about the film falling behind schedule and beginning to go over budget (not to mention the cost of flying executives to and from Africa) have necessitated the placement of Warner Bros. producer, Denise Di Novi on location. While she won’t have producer credits on the film, Di Novi will be responsible for supervising the production as a “studio representative.” The film, which started shooting in July, is reportedly still expected to wrap by the end of November.
Mad Max: Fury Road starring Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Nicholas Hoult and Zoe Kravitz, is due out next year. Hit the jump for more.
