Mad Max 4 scouting for locations?

Wait… What!? A live-action “Mad Max 4″? Wasn’t George Miller going to direct an animated “Max” flick instead?

According to The Daily Telegraph, Miller is – once again – gearing up to shoot “Mad Max 4″ in Sydney.  Suggesting it’s indeed a live-action film, the paper reports ”Scouting for locations is already happening and specialised technicians have been approached”.

Last we heard, Miller was prepping an R-rated, stereoscopic anime flick for theatrical release.

Wouldn’t it be great if Miller had suddenly canceled his plans to shoot an animated “Max” film in favour of a live-action one because Mel Gibson finally agreed to do it?

Stranger things have happened… but yes, that’s a dream… a big, fat wet one.

“Mad Max 4″ was originally set to shoot in 2003 until financing collapsed in the wake of the Iraq War.  The hiccup, combined with his age, saw Gibbo go cold on the project.
