Men, Motors & Meltdowns: A ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Feature

15 May 2015 4:00 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

The Fast & Furious franchise has clocked up a ridiculous number of miles at the box office and now another series is about to join the fun, set in the future but resurrected from a seemingly-dormant past.

Mad Max: Fury Road takes us back to the dusty, post-apocalyptic world of Max Rockatansky, a man as burned by tragedy as by the relentless Outback sun.

The four part comic book series will be adapted by writer Michael Benedetto and artist Antonio Fuso; here’s the official description:

Drive follows a young man who escapes to L.A. to do one thing, drive. That’s all he does, and he’s the best. Whether on studio lots as a stunt driver or in high-speed chases evading the cops, there’s no one better behind the wheel. That kind of expertise comes with a hefty price tag and allows for a strict set of principles: “I don’t sit in while you’re planning the score or while you’re running it down… »
