Seemingly convinced they’ve got a hit on their hands, Warner Bros have locked “Mad Max Fury Road” star Tom Hardy into reprising the role of the apocalyptic warrior a further three times. But, stresses the 37-year-old actor, that doesn’t mean there’ll necessarily be any more “Mad Max” movies.
“Everything’s based on figures and how things are perceived”, Hardy tells Esquire. “Inevitably it’s a business.”
Granted, Writer-Director George Miller has always been thinking beyond “Fury Road”; before this one started production he’d mentioned that it was the first of two new films, and he had originally intended to film the two back-to-back.
Until critics get a chance to check out “Fury Road”, we’ll just have to take Hardy’s word for it that it’s “fucking unbelievable”.
