Last week I heard that Charlize Theron had dropped out of the spy thriller The Tourist, but the actress may already have something new up her sleeve. Apparently director George Miller has Theron in mind to take the lead in his fourth installment of the Mad Max franchise.
That's not the only news about the upcoming sequel — since Mel Gibson's supposedly too old to reprise his role, Miller has his eye on British actor Tom Hardy to take over.
Other than that, Miller is being very hush-hush about the details of his movie, but what do you make of this news? Can Charlize breathe new life into the 30-year-old story, or would it be better to let Mad Max rest in peace?
