"Mad Max" heads to Africa, not Oz


Confirmation today that "Fury Road : Mad Max 4" will indeed film in Namibia, Africa rather than outback New South Wales, Australia. Panavision Australia topper Dennis Noonan says he believes they chose that African locale because they can accommodate the cast and crew much closer to the desert than is possible in Australia. Noonan still hopes Panavision will get the chance to service the production in Namibia, says Variety. Also, there’s unconfirmed talk that "Fury Road" may shoot some interiors Down Under. While also on the topic, Robert Downey Jr confirmed this week that if he is indeed asked to be part of the film, he’ll do it.
