Wow...didn't know they were re-making this movie. This oughta be good !! I like Tom Hardy, too.
A motorcycle - hmmmm, well, much better gas economy. Not much room for 'Dinki Di' dog food cans though . . . :^)About time this one was remade, its a classic. I wonder if Mel Gibson will do an obligatory appearance in this one ?
Did all of the writers in Hollywood secretly die and they are just remaking anything they can?
They're remaking everything. From a financial standpoint, the Hollywood execs view remakes as lower risk than something new...a Road Warrior remake with Tom Hardy as lead has a pretty big built in audience on opening weekend.
There is something so iconic about the Australian Ford Falcon with the blower poking through the hood, I will certainly miss that part. Tom Hardy is a good choice for the role though.
There are some odd things about this remake...1) It's an Aussie film, use an Aussie actor, not a British actor,2) Shoot it in Australia, not Africa. We have more desert and fewer people and more locations to work with... must be a cost thing?It should still be good, but Mad Max is an Aussie apocolypse icon, and it wil suck if it is "internationalised..."
