MAD MAX: FURY ROAD to Undergo Three Weeks of Additional Shooting

by     Posted 358 days ago


While there are plenty of exciting films opening over the next few months, one highly anticipated pic that’s already in the can is conspicuously absent.  After years of starts and stops—including a massive yearlong postponement due to torrential rains in the planned filming location—director George Miller’s long-promised Mad Max: Fury Road finally underwent principal photography in the summer of 2012.  However, in the ensuing time we have yet to see even an official image from the pic.  While some were hopeful that Miller would complete Fury Road in time to make a surprise late 2013 release, it became clear that that would not be the case.

Now we may have a bit of a reason for the delay, as Miller is poised to go back and do three weeks of additional shooting on the pic with his main cast.  Hit the jump for more.

Despite Miller’s initial shoot lasting six months, Inside Film (via The Playlist) reports that Mad Max: Fury Road is now scheduled for three weeks of additional shooting in Australia later this year.  The film’s cast, which includes Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, and Zoe Kravitz, is expected to be returning for the reshoots, so one imagines a significant portion of the film is being reworked.  This is slightly disconcerting given that Miller had plenty of time to prep and plan Fury Road over the past few years, but hopefully the additional shooting will be for the better.

There is still no official release date for the film, but if Miller captures what he needs with these reshoots, Warner Bros. might decide to drop the film into the Summer 2014 movie season.  In the meantime, here’s hoping they release something from Mad Max: Fury Road soon.

    F! Apologies for using harsh letters but was hoping that this was going to be a good one. Love George Miller and Tom Hardy so it’s a shame if they are having issues in post production. Will wait to start a bitch fest until I see an official trailer.

    Though it is saddening does everyone forget about world war z and its problems and reshoots and look how that turned out. Just saying dont write this one off yet.

    I’m not writing this one off…just watch “Hearts of Darkness”, about Apocalypse Now. Talk about troubles, and look how it turned out—

    Could be good. I actually liked Charlize in Prometheus, which is a miracle
