Mad Max : Nemesis?

We Don’t Need Another Hero – but George Miller’s intent on giving us one (since Mel Gibson let it be known a few years back he wouldn’t be getting back behind the wheel of a 949 XB GT any time soon). And might this new hero be… Shinzon!?

Yep, Tom Hardy, the talented British actor who, besides playing bad guy the woeful ”Star Trek : Nemesis”, starred in the fabbo “Bronson” is reportedly in the running to be cinema’s new Mad Max.

Miller, says E! Online, is currently casting the long-gestating “Mad Max 4 : Fury Road” and ‘multiple sources’ are telling the gossip-portal that the 32-year old Hammersmith-native is possibly going to score the keys to the Interceptor.

In addition, the site reports that Charlize Theron is up for a role in the film.

No deals have been made, no contracts signed, and no teaser one-sheeters for the film printed… but this time “Mad Max 4″ is – so they say – really happening.
