It's sounding like George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road is going to have some epic 3D action packed stunts filling up the big screen. The movie won't start shooting until next year, but it is heavily in pre-production right now, and there's a lot going on. The stunt men for the film are currently in training/rehersals for the production, and one of them by the name of Cameron Taylor recently did an interview in which he talked about the ultimate chaos we can expect to see in the movie.
It’s a big budget deal that’s got 130 cars and bikes and 298 stunts!
Hell yeah! This film is obviously going to be incredibly action packed! For those of you who don't know there's a, 80's film called The Junkman that holds the Guiness Book of World Records for most car crashes in a movie. How many? 250. We don't really know if these 298 stunts will involves car wrecks, but that still a hell of a lot of stunts!
Taylor goes on to explain what he's doing to prep up for the movie and reveals he'll be more than just a stuntman in the film.
I'm literally riding all day at the moment, jumping up cliffs and doing some technical riding. So it's hard work, but good fun. The on-set catering is insane, with choice-cut steaks and all sorts of gourmet stuff, but I think they're holding off on desserts for us as they want us to all have that skinny, feral desert look. Even I have to lose weight to look right! It's cool as we are actually going to be part of the movie, not just stunt doubles. I'll be back out here early next year for seven months while the thing is filmed.
Mad Max: Fury Road is definitely a movie event worth looking forward too! It just sounds like it's going to be balls out insane!
The film stars Tom Hardy (Inception), Charlize Theron, and Nicolas Hoult.
What do you all think about the amount of stunt work that will be involved with this movie?
