Director George Miller wants to tell a linear story in 'Mad Max: Fury Road'

Entertainment Weekly

Mad Max: Fury Road will have "few digital effects and even less dialogue," according to Entertainment Weekly. The upcoming action movie features Tom Hardy as road warrior Max Rockatansky, and a shaven-headed Charlize Theron as "bad-ass commander" Imperator Furiosa.


"I wanted to tell a linear story — a chase that starts as the movie begins and continues for 110 minutes,"  says 69-year-old George Miller, who directed all of the original Mad Max movies. The cast reportedly spent seven months in the Namibia desert in order to shoot the dystopian-themed film, which Miller first envisioned in 2000. On top of an interview with the director, Entertainment Weekly also published some storyboard art and a number of stills from the 2015 reboot. The images show combat scenes, post-apocalyptic vehicles, and the cast looking dirty, stern-faced, and battle-worn.
