The Australian is reporting that filming for George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road has been delayed further and pre-production may not even continue until August or November of 2011.
“The delay has left many major film crew members without work amid fears the high Australian dollar could ultimately kill the film as its budget grows,” says the newspaper.
Production is now anticipated to begin in the Broken Hill region in February 2012.
It’s the second delay for the film. In July, Kennedy Miller Productions said unseasonal rains had made the Broken Hill area too fertile and production was put back to later this year.
Mad Max: Fury Road is expected to star Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Adelaide Clemens and Riley Keough.
