Tom Hardy Mad MaxGeorge Miller is sending a rejuvenating ten thousand volts into the Mad Max franchise and the result will be Mad Max 4 and THR is reporting that Miller has found his new leading man – Tom Hardy.

After his impressive turn in Bronson it seems Hardy will take on the post apocalyptic road warriors in the fourth film of the Mad Max series, and rumours abound that Charlize Theron is in talks to play the female lead.

Interesting casting certainly, and I’ve no doubt that Hardy can kick all sorts of arse and deserves to be given a role that will introduce him to a wider audience. Miller will be shooting Mad Max 4 next year. Eyes, as always, will be on this one.

Now if they could get Tina Turner back involved somehow that would be great.
