'Mad Max: Fury Road' Still Coming, But Some Reshoots Are Planned
The last news we heard of the long-gestating Mad Max: Fury Road starring Tom Hardy, the film had decided not to shoot in 3D, opting for a post-production conversion, mostly because the crew was unsure whether or not some of the equipment could survive the harsh desert environments where shooting would take place. Since then, we haven't see a first look photo or heard any news from the production. The good news is the film is still coming, but Inside Film (via The Playlist) reports that three more weeks of additional shooting needs to be completed back down under in November with most of the principal cast. More below!
The film from George Miller has been a long time coming with shooting once planned for 2010 until a delay pushed it back to 2o12, but production didn't even begin until this past July. The six month shoot was completed in Africa with Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and now it sounds like shooting will finally be done after this last round of reshoots in the fall. We're not sure if we should be worried about the film or not, but we're hoping it'll still be on track for release sometime in 2014. If not, the film could end up getting dumped in early 2015.

I was beginning to think this was another vapor-movie. Seems like a long production. 2015? I hope it's out before Biff Tannen takes over.

This will be released at the same time as that MAD MAX open world game from the developers of JUST CAUSE 1-2......That's my theory anyway! Lol the game is set for summer of 2014.

"Down under"? Wasn't this film shot it Africa?

When there's no specify plan that means something wrong. This sequel always had UN-specify status. WHY? Tom Hardy & Charlize Theron were PERFECT CAST for action movie and i'm sure fans waiting for so long too. I'm not pessimist but cant wait more time either. I hope film was based on solid screenplay like memorable second installment.
