    Big Payday for Mel Gibson in Fury Road
    Tuesday, December 10, 2002 5:57 CST

    Mel Gibson is returning to the Mad Max franchise again, this time at Twentieth Century Fox where he'll be paid a salary approaching $25 million under the helm of the original film's director, George Miller. Variety says Gibson will be toplining a script that Miller has been crafting the last three years.

    The film is entitled Fury Road and will once again feature Mad Max in the lawless, post-apocalpytic Australian outback. Plans call for the $104 million megapic to begin lensing in Australia, with next May as the targeted start date.

    Miller got the rights to the Mad Max franchise back from Warner Bros. as part of a settlement with the studio in 1997. Warners, which released both Mad Max: The Road Warrior in 1981 and Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome in 1985, gave him the rights after Miller -- who'd directed and co-written all three movies -- agreed to detach himself from Warner Bros.' Jodie Foster-starrer Contact and allow Robert Zemeckis to helm.

    The deal marks both the first film that Miller will direct since the 1998 sequel to his 1995 script Babe, and the first pic that he's ever directed for Fox, which has been courting him for years.

    Beyond Thunderdome sucked!
    If they make it along the same lines as 1 and 2 it would be cool.
    The biggest mistake was writing the Black Interceptor off in 2!

    EXCLUSIVE: Fourth ‘Mad Max’ In Development…As 3-D Anime Feature

    Good ol’ Mad Max: post-apocalyptic gun-slinger with a need for blood-thirsty revenge! MTV News’ #4 Movie Badass of All Time! And…star of a 3-D anime feature film?!

    Unlikely as that last one sounds, some big screen animated “Max” action is shaping up to become a reality, according to George Miller, the writer/director of the previous three films. The catch? He doesn’t want Max himself, Mel Gibson, anywhere near the project.

    “We’ll probably go a different route,” Miller told MTV News about the potential talent voicing the lead role. The plot would be partly lifted from the script of the fourth “Max” film, which was set to shoot in 2003 until financing collapsed in the wake of the Iraq War.

    Now Miller is resurrecting the idea as an R-rated, stereoscopic anime flick for theatrical release. It’s a curious undertaking, to be sure, but one made all the more certain to happen after the runaway success in 2006 of his computer-animated “Happy Feet”—not that the newest, ever-violent “Max” film will have much in common with that kid-friendly penguin party.

    “I see myself as someone who is very curious about storytelling and all its various media,” Miller said. “I’ve always loved anime, in particular the Japanese sensibility. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.”

    The project is one phase of a “Mad Max” renaissance of sorts. Along with “God of War II” designer Cory Barlog, Miller is developing an action-adventure videogame based on the fourth film. Gibson won’t be participating in that endeavor, either.

    For the anime release, Miller isn’t looking simply to mimic Japanese-style animation but rather to adapt it for Western audiences. “The anime is an opportunity for me to shift a little bit about what anime is doing because anime is ripe for an adjustment or sea change,” he explained. “It’s coming in games and I believe it’s the same in anime. There’s going to be a hybrid anime where it shifts more towards Western sensibilities. [Japanese filmmaker Akira] Kurosawa was able to bridge that gap between the Japanese sensibilities and the West and make those definitive films.”

    It’s been 23 years since we last tasted some fresh “Mad Max” goodness, but neither the anime nor the game will be arriving soon enough to satisfy our hunger for the rage-filled Australian vigilante. “I’ve got a couple of years left,” said Miller. “We’re in the early stages writing and designing. A really good game you need two and half years. And for good anime you need two years.
    "Watch what people are cynical about, and one can often discover what they lack.” -- Gen. George S. Patton

    big fan of the original Mad Max...not sure I'd be into watching a full length anime style film...it would depend.

    I'm not a big fan of the animation that has come out over the last 10-15 years. Ever since they've gone to digital animation, it all just looks so sterile and generic. I haven't like a single animated movie, not Toy Story, not Finding Nemo, not the ones with Mike Meyers as the ogre, none of 'em.

    I particularly found the Star Wars animated series to be pretty lame. I just don't like the way it looks at all.

    Without Mel Gibson being involved, what would be the point? And, anime? C'mon, that's not what Mad Max is all about. I hope this "project" never sees the light of day. Leave that classic alone please. Bad idea all the way around if you ask me.

    I think it shows how little creativity there is in Hollywood or maybe there are some great ideas but they rarely see the light of day. We have Candyland being made into a movie, Lethal Weapon 5, Mad Max in anime. Hard to believe these are being considered.
    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
