Warner Bros. Sends Set Supervisor to Namibia for MAD MAX: FURY ROAD Assistance

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.

Heat Vision reported mad-max-4-fury-road-car-crosson the delays and budget concerns of Warner Bros. studio head Jeff Robinov, who discovered during a recent visit that the film was about a week behind schedule.  The turn of events comes as no surprise for people familiar with Miller, as he’s known to run over-budget and behind-schedule.  Even his most recent directorial effort, Happy Feet Two, barely finished in time for its release.

Here’s the synopsis for Mad Max: Fury Road:

“Mad Max: Fury Road”–the fourth in the franchise’s history–stars Tom Hardy (“The Dark Knight Rises”) in the title role of Max Rockatansky, alongside Oscar(R) winner Charlize Theron (“Monster”, “Prometheus”) as Imperator Furiosa.

According to Miller, “Mad Max is caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the Imperator Furiosa. This movie is an account of the Road War which follows. It is based on the Word Burgers of the History Men and eyewitness accounts of those who survived.”
