Three More Mad Max Movies Are In The Works

Finally, a film that lets you scream FIRE! in a crowded theater.  Or an empty theater, depending on the movie itself.
Finally, a film that lets you scream FIRE! in a crowded theater. Or an empty theater, depending on the movie itself.

Take this with a huge grain of salt.  Or sand.  Or salty sand.  But Time is reporting that Tom Hardy is attached to three more Mad Max films after this summer’s flaming-tornado-desert-race pic.  Director George Miller already has the screenplay for the second and a novelization of the third, which is important because we all know Mad Max films are only as good as their literary origins.  The fourth movie?  Who knows.

Mad Max Fury Road comes out on May 15 and will have the first Batsoup trailer–which anyone with an internet connection will also be able to watch.

After Tom Hardy dropped out of Suicide Squad because Will Smith totally rewrote the script like I said he would, now word is that Jake Gyllenhal (who deserved an Oscar nod for Nightcrawler ) has passed as well. 

A bump in the road or sign that Will Smith now ruins movies? 

And that Rick Flag picture above? That’s pure wit you get only from Gabbing Geek!
