The fourth piece of the Mad Max saga, Mad Max: Fury Road is on its way by the hands of its creator, George Miller, and will star Tom Hardy ("The Dark Knight Rises"' villain) and Charlize Theron. Mad Max, 1979, was the film that gave birth to Mel Gibson as we became to know him and established new paradigms on the post apocalyptic fiction. It was a colossal box-office success, collecting $100 million out of A$400 thousand.
After such modest half of a carrier, with four films in thirty years, 2011 Golden Palm winner Terrence Malick threatens to reclaim the time he has spent in his long interregnums over the years. Besides being conducing the post-production of his next feature, a love story starring Ben Affleck, Rachel McAdams, Javier Bardem and Rachel Weisz, reports state the reserved director has just cast Christian Bale for another project. I shall recall the two have worked together in Malick's beautiful anthem to nature The New World. Also, conversations may be being held with Rooney Mara ("The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo"), Mia Wasikowska ("The Kids Are All Right"), Halley Bennet ("Kaboom") and Clemence Poesy (Delacour in "Harry Potter").
One of the movies I most expect this year, Polanski's improbable domestic comedy Carnage has just got its trailer up in the air.

Confirming the news from some months ago, Ridley Scott will be directing a Blade Runner new project. Although it is yet unknown if it's going to be a prequel or a sequel, the producer Andrew Kosgrove prospects something wholly original and as departed from the first film as possible. Scott is now working on his Alien "cousin" film, Prometheus, and may get this one done by 2014. Harrison Ford will not ship in.
