Moviegoers next summer will revisit the cult classic Mad Max franchise in a new film, Mad Max: Fury Road directed by George Miller. Miller directed Mel Gibson in the original 1979 film.

Theron

Miller had originally planned to cast Gibson in a fourth Mad Max film (after The Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome), but the project spent years in development and when a new script from British comic creator Brendan McCarthy emerged, work began on Fury Road, eventually roping in Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, and Nicholas Hoult who all appear perfectly cast for this franchise. No special guest cameo from Tina Turner though, as far as we know.

Enjoy, AFTER THE JUMP...

Shirtless, Tatted, Bearded Tom Hardy Covers 'Esquire': PHOTOS

Hardy

Tom Hardy rips his shirt off for this month's Esquire in advance of his new film Locke, and tells the magazine that the rough image he projects isn't all he's cracked up to be:

"I have always been frightened with men. To the point where I couldn't go into a gym because of the testosterone and I felt weak. I don't feel very manly. I don't feel rugged and strong and capable in real life, not how i imagine a man ought to be. So I seek it, to mimic it and maybe understand it, or maybe to draw it into my own reality. People who are scary, they terrify me, but I can imitate them. I'm not a fighter. I'm a petite little bourgeosis boy from London. I don't fight, I mimic."

Fresh off of the success of Behind the Candelabra, HBO’s Liberace biopic, come casting rumors about another upcoming film project centered around another gay musical performer.

Elton John’s Rocketman, which has been in development for a few years now, has recently come into the spotlight once again amid rumors that Tom Hardy, star of films such as The Dark Knight Rises, Inception, This Is War, Bronson, and the upcoming Mad Max: Fury Road, is currently circling the lead role. Hardy has yet to receive a formal offer or offer a comment. However, HitFlix has reportedly received news from within that producers Elton John, David Furnish, and Steve Hamilton-Shaw, and director Michael Gracy currently have Hardy at the top of their most-wanted list.

John has previously expressed interest in having actor-musician Justin Timberlake play the lead role, one that he has already performed in a David LaChapelle video and on Saturday Night Live. No news has been released as to whether Timberlake is still in the running.
