It's been a few decades since we've seen anything new in the post-apocalyptic Mad Max franchise, which helped kick off the career of a young Mel Gibson. With a reboot now in the works, Gibson has opened up about the Mad Max 4 that never was.
George Miller is finally returning to the wasteland with his fourth Mad Max flick, Fury Road, and this time he'll have a new Max in the form of The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy. But what about the original Max? Doesn't Mel Gibson at least get a cameo? Gibson's heard the rumors, and now he's weighing in.
Before he was a tabloid fixture, before he was an Oscar-winning director, before he was People's Sexiest Man Alive, Mel Gibson was a struggling actor who needed a break. And that break came at the mercy of a wicked bar fight.
