Despite being met by reactions ranging from apathy to disgust, it looks like the Mel Gibson-less Mad Max film is still moving steadily but slowly forward. E! has reportedly heard from multiple sources that, though director George Miller has been incredibly secretive about plot and details, he's looking at British actor Tom Hardy (from Band of Brothers, and looking crazy in this Bronson trailer) and Charlize Theron to play the leads.
So this means come-out-of-nowhere Australian action star Sam Worthington wasn't automatically cast as Australian hero Mad Max when the new film was announced? I just assumed.
Great. Now what am I going to do with all these shirts?
