Mad Max 4 Announced -- Mel Gibson Will Not Star!

Posted Mar 14th 2007 10:01AM by Ryan Stewart
Filed under: Action, Drama, Casting, Deals, Fandom, Newsstand, Remakes and Sequels

Director George Miller has told the AAP two interesting things: Mad Max 4 is going to happen and Mel Gibson won't be the lead. Miller says frankly that Gibson is now too old and too 'focused on his own films' to reprise the role of Rockatansky, so instead he's going to try to recruit a new, young star for the lead. The AAP also notes that Miller began developing Mad Max 4 before production began on Happy Feet, and now that he's finished with that, he's turning his full attention to the project. "I have a few projects in the pipeline including an animation...but I want to do another Mad Max movie and get stuck back into that," Miller said. "It won't be Mel. He was 21 when he made the first one, now he's a lot older and his passion is for filmmaking and directing. I don't think he is into acting and I don't think he would be interested in being involved at all."

The amusing AAP story also has Miller claiming that he received good career advice from his fellow Aussies Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman -- to not get a big head after his Oscar success with Happy Feet. "I was warned not to inhale too much because you can take it a little too seriously," Miller said. "We didn't expect to win, but it was a good excuse to drink, party and to act like teenagers again." No further details were offered as to the timetables and plans for the Mad Max sequel, but my two cents is that Gibson should return if only for a small role. Is it really Mad Max without Mad Mel?

From the sound of the interview it doesn't seem like he even bothered to ask Mel to be in the film...which is a shame, because Mel is the only reason to watch those movies...

Mel IS Mad Max. Without him, there is no movie. It's going to be a hard pill to swallow seeing someone else playing him. That's like replacing Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. No sale.

I wouldn't mind a movie in the Mad Max universe, but I just cannot get one bit excited about an actual Mad Max film without Mel.

i agree that you can t have mad max without mel.
it s not like james bond that anyone who is charming can do it.

as far as the movie is concerned i think that mad max 3 was total crap and
i wouldn t want to see an even worse 4th one.
The first 2 are amazing but the third....

Bleh...sad news indeed. The third one had it's moments but was a dogs breakfast most of the time. I've always held hopes that a new one was to be made but can't envision it without ol' Mel.

The 1st one was great and the second one improved on it in every way. One of my all time favorites. I choose to belive Thunderdome does not exist.

From all the reports about this movie that have been popping up over the years I always got the impression that Mad Max 4 wasn't going to be about Max. Which is fine by me, allthough it would be awesome for Mel to atleast make a small appearance. There's nothing in that article that actually says someone else is taking over the role of Max so I'm not worried... yet.
