Tom Hardy opens up about returning to Mad Max for a prequel,'The Wasteland'

Tom Hardy has recently shared his two cents on working in Mad Max for a rumoured prequel, The Wasteland.

“I don’t think that’s happening,” said Tom in a new interview with Forbes when asked about working with George Miller to reprise his Mad Max: Fury Road role.


For the unversed, Tom was featured opposite Charlize Theron in 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road.

In another interview with the director George, he told The Telegraph about the on-set drama between Tom and Charlize.

“They were just two very different performers,” remarked George.

The director stated, “Tom has a damage to him but also a brilliance that comes with it, and whatever was going on with him at the time, he had to be coaxed out of his trailer.”

“Whereas Charlize was incredibly disciplined – a dancer by training, which told in the precision of her performance – and always the first one on set,” he further said.

The director explained, “I’m an optimist, so I saw their behaviour as mirroring their characters, where they had to learn to cooperate in order to ensure mutual survival.”

“There’s no excuse for it, and I think there’s a tendency in this business to use great performances as an excuse for other disruption that could be avoided,” he said.

In the end, George added, “We have to see how well this one does.”
