Weird but true Mad Max stories that not many people know

Postby blastermaster » Tue Oct 18, 2016 1:36 am

Hi everyone, I'm particularly interested in those strange real-life bits and bobs related to Mad Max that not many people know.

I assume some of the older forum members would have shared some of this stuff before, but I thought it'd be fun to list them in the one place. And also to name/link to a source, so that it's not just rumours.

Australian TV entertainer Bert Newton was originally going to play Immortan Joe

During the release of the original Mad Max, George Miller spoke out against violence on television. He said he was "strong against" violence on TV but in films it's OK

The company who provided catering for Fury Road sued the production company

Anybody else got any good ones?

Where does it say Newton was going to play Immortan Joe ? I thought he would have been more suited to play the People Eater

Right you are. Sorry, had a brain snap. Newton was indeed lined up to play People Eater...
