We can't imagine Mel Gibson starring in the follow up... even though he has certainly proven to be quite mad these days.
But Moviehole reports that Mad Max: Fury Road is finally ready to start production this week at Fox Studios in Sydney.
The site speculates that Mad Max: Fury Road will be released just before the much-hyped Justice League of America.
The filmmakers will have to find a new title character, of course, but no names have been released yet.
The original three films in the franchise starring Gibson featured the actor playing a cop in a futuristic Australian dystopia ruled by wandering groups of thugs, all fighting over precious resources, such as gasoline.
This sequel will take place in a similar setting.
