George Miller is back at the helm of the franchise that launched his career nearly 35 years ago. Mel Gibson is back too — but not as the lead. Warner Bros and Village Roadshow said today that its reboot Mad Max: Fury Road will hit screens on May 15, 2015. Tom Hardy steps into the title role for the first film in the postapocalyptic series since 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Miller directed that pic, along with 1979’s Mad Max and its 1981 sequel The Road Warrior, which made Gibson an international star. The 3D Fury Road has that May 2015 opening weekend to itself for now, but it’ll arrive a mere two weeks after The Avengers: Age Of Ultron and a week before Disney sci-fi pic Tomorrowland, starring George Clooney. Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult co-star in the film written by Miller, Nick Lathouris and Brendan McCarthy. Miller also is producing with Doug Mitchell and P.J. Voeten.
