Just a few days after it was reported that Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy are in the running to star in George Miller’s fourth Mad Max movie, The Daily Telegraph says that work on the film will start immediately and that filming will take place in Sydney and Outback NSW.
The newspaper says that a lot of the work will be done at Redfern’s CarriageWorks and there will also be 30 weeks of filming in Broken Hill. It is estimated the whole project will take two-and-a-half years to complete.
Miller said: “The production agreements have been a long time in the making and Premier Rees and his team have worked like Trojans to ensure this substantial investment comes into this country. Not only does it help fuel the local economy but it means many talented people get a chance to practice their craft and lift their skills.”
CarriageWorks will be used for the development work for the film, as well as Miller’s Happy Feet 2.
Filming is expected to start next year.
