No 'Mad' Mel Cameo
With production of the Mad Max reboot (rumored to be titled Mad Max: Fury Road) finally getting underway with Tom Hardy taking over the lead role, and Charlize Theron riding sawed-off shotgun, the big question about the reboot remains: Will OG Mad man Mel Gibson make a cameo?
Well, at this weekend's Angels at Risk charity benefit, Mel gave E! Online the straight dope.
"Nope. I've got nothing to do with it. [Director] George [Miller], he's filming in Namibia or something," he told the site. But don't take that to mean a little pop-up spot couldn't be squeezed in if all the players came to an agreement.
"It would be fun to fly to Namibia and be a snake in the background or something," Gibson said. "I think it's going to be great. George is a genius."
Maybe smart enough to know that keeping Gibson out of the picture is in the reboot's best interest?
