The British actor told Esquire UK that he's already signed on for three more Mad Max movies and that Fury Road is a really good movie, but that doesn't mean he isn't feeling the weight of the franchise on his back.
From the interview:
As for the pressure, Hardy says it’s enormous. “I’ve never been more excited and out of my comfort zone.” He’s seen the film, and says it’s “fucking unbelievable”. He’s attached to a further three Mad Max films, though as he says, “Everything’s based on figures and how things are perceived. Inevitably it’s a business.”
Hardy also used some very unique comparisons to describe the movie.
"We were in the middle of nowhere, so far away from the studio system that [Warner Bros] can’t really see what’s going on, and just getting things to and from the set was a nightmare. We’d lose half a vehicle in sand and have to dig it out. It was just this unit in the middle of x-million square-kilometres of desert, and then this group of lunatics in leathers, like a really weird S&M party, or a Hell’s Angels convention. It was like Cirque du Soleil meets fucking Slipknot."
After 30 years, it sounds like Mad Max isn't just back, it sounds like everybody is all in on making this thing huge for years to come.
