Holy Shinzon! Tom Hardy is the new Mad Max. Charlize Theron is the pretty post apocalyptic female lead

Posted by LiveFor on October 30, 2009

bronsonfilmstill_450x300Well, well, well. One of these internet rumours turned out to be true. Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy are in negotiations to star in the next Mad Max film, Mad Fax:Fury Road from writer-director George Miller.

According to Heat Vision blog Mel Gibson is not reprising his iconic role of Max Rockatansky.

The new Max is to be Hardy, the British-born actor who was Shinzon, the clone of Capt Picard in Star Trek Nemesis, Handsome Bob in Guy Ritchie’s RocknRolla, Charles Bronson in Bronson and he’s also working on Christopher Nolan’s Inception.

Charlize Theron is playing the female lead, but so far there’s no more info on her character.

Plot details are scarce but supposedly the movie does take place a short while after the story detailed in 1985’s “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome,” which keeps Mad Max relatively young.

A shoot next summer in Australia is being eyed. The movie will be an Australian production which Warner Bros. will distribute.

“Road” has been in the works for more than a decade, with Gibson attached to star at one point. When the project finally began ramping up earlier this spring and summer, Miller began looking at and testing numerous actors who could step into the grim shoes previously worn by Gibson. Sam Worthington was the hot favourite, but it was not to be.

Not sure how I feel about Hardy playing Max. He is a good actor and Bronson shows he can really change for a role. Still it will be good to see a new Mad Max film.

How do you feel about Tom Hardy getting behind the wheel of the last of the V8 Interceptors?

Valhalla Rising -Trailer for Nicolas Refn’s Viking epic

Posted by LiveFor on April 10, 2009

Nicolas Refn is the director of Bronson and Pusher. This new one of his looks nice and vikingy! It stars Casino Royale’s Mads Mikkelsen (what is it with him and characters with dodgy eyes?)

For years, One-Eye, a mute warrior of supernatural strength, has been held prisoner by the chieftain Barde. Aided by a boy, Are, he kills his captor and together they escape, beginning a journey into the heart of darkness. On their flight from bounty hunters, One-Eye and Are board a Viking vessel, but the ship is soon engulfed by an endless fog that first disintegrates as they sight an unknown land. As the new land reveals its secrets and the Vikings meet a ghastly fate, One-Eye discovers his true self.

Warrior – Nick Nolte enters the world of mixed martial arts

Posted by LiveFor on March 9, 2009

Lionsgate and director Gavin O’Connor have set Nick Nolte, Tom Hardy, Joel Edgerton and Jennifer Morrison to star in “Warrior,” a drama set in the world of mixed martial arts fighting. Production begins in April in Pittsburgh.
Nolte plays an ex-Vietnam vet boxer-turned-steel mill worker whose family was torn apart by his alcoholism; the now-sober and remorseful dad welcomes back his youngest son (Hardy) and trains him to compete in a mixed martial arts tournament. He and his older brother, played by Edgerton, are on a collision course in the ring.

O’Connor wrote the script with Anthony Tambakis, and the helmer will produce with brother Greg O’Connor.

Hardy can currently be seen in “Bronson” and previously starred in “Layer Cake”, “RocknRolla” and “Star Trek: Nemesis” and Edgerton just starred in “The Waiting City” and “The Truth About Men.” Morrison, who stars in the Fox series “House,” will next be seen in the J.J. Abrams-directed “Star Trek.”

O’Connor had originally set Nolte to play the patriarch in his last film, “Pride and Glory,” but the actor bowed out because of a knee problem and Jon Voight stepped in. Nolte was last seen in “Tropic Thunder.”

Bronson – Trailer

Posted by LiveFor on January 12, 2009

The notorious life of the UK’s “most violent prisoner” serves as the subject of Pusher Trilogy director Nicolas Winding Refn’s brutal biopic. Born Michael Peterson but later renamed by his fight promoter, Charles Bronson’s sole ambition in life was to become famous. Surmising that the fastest means of accomplishing his goal with such limited opportunities was to cultivate a stylized persona as a hardened criminal, the ambitious do-badder embraced a desperate existence of extreme savagery. But who is the real man behind the warped persona? Seeing as how twenty-eight of Bronson’s thirty-four years behind bars were spent in solitary confinement, that’s a difficult question to answer. The terror of the legend comes to vivid life, however, as director Refn explores the twisted alternate reality created by Bronson, and highlights precisely how the controversial criminal staged himself within that anarchistic world.
