According to The Hollywood Reporter, the fourth installment of the Mad Max film series — which launched the career of a young Mel Gibson 30 years ago — is set to begin production in Sydney and the Australian outback next year, with producer/director George Miller back at the helm. Titled Fury Road, the film is currently without studio backing, but reportedly has a $100 million budget.
