Fury Road has “138 cars and bikes and 298 stunts!”

Now this is interesting….

A couple of days ago Cameron Taylor, Transmoto Magazine test rider and movie motorcycle stuntman, had a few things to say about his involvement in the turbo-charged George Miller flick “Mad Max Fury Road” over on the official Transmoto website.

Taylor, up in Broken Hill doing rehearsals for the highly-anticipated “Thunderome” follow-up (starring Tom Hardy, Nicholas Hoult, Charlize Theron & Riley Keough), told the rag, “It’s a big budget deal that’s got 130 cars and bikes and 298 stunts!”

The stuntman/actor goes on to say that, “With Stephen Gall orchestrating the bike side of the stunt program, there’s Yamaha YZ250s; R1s with super-long swingarms, knobbies and beefed-up suspension; and Tenere 650s will insane paint jobs. They’re going all out on this.

“I’m literally riding all day at the moment, jumping up cliffs and doing some technical riding. So it’s hard work, but good fun,” said Taylor. “The on-set catering is insane, with choice-cut steaks and all sorts of gourmet stuff, but I think they’re holding off on desserts for us as they want us to all have that skinny, feral desert look. Even I have to lose weight to look right! It’s cool as we are actually going to be part of the movie, not just stunt doubles. I’ll be back out here early next year for seven months while the thing is filmed,” he said.

The website stated that “Taylor will soon be joined by other Pro motocrossers, Robbie Marshall and Cody Mackie, who’ll be showcasing some bigger FMX-style stunts for the movie. So how much is Taylor earning for all this? A lot! However, envy prevents us from even mentioning the lavish sums of coin.”

Funnily enough, the news item disappeared from the website about 24 hours later… but you can still find it in the Google Cache here. Did Taylor let slip details of the production that he wasn’t supposed to slip? (Possibly, though it’s fair to say he didn’t reveal anything too spoiler-ish) Maybe it was the bit about the “lavish sums of coin” he was being paid to do the film? Or maybe, and if so way to yank free good PR, someone at the studio just didn’t appreciate Taylor letting folks know how many cars and bikes would be used for the film?

Thanks to ‘David’
