I know what you're thinking- where does the Mad Max franchise go after Thunderdome and Mel Gibson's DUI?
We don't know either, but we're excited to hear that Aussie director George Miller is finally going to give us another taste of his post-apocalyptic vision. After 10 years of rumors, speculation and false starts, Max is finally going to get back behind the wheel!
George Miller recently spoke to the press about the new film, not just to say he's working on it, but to show off some of the new machinery that will be employed in the movie. Check out the new rides in this video:

It looks like the world still ended in the late 70's, judging by the style of the cars in the video. It's good to see that they haven't tried to update the iconic Interceptor, but have decided to keep the car pretty much as it was in the first two films.
What we don't know based on this is whether or not the fllm will be a true sequel, or whether Miller is planning a full-on reboot. Either way, it's exciting. No word yet on who will be starring in Mad Max 4, but rumors have been circulating the net that Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron are in consideration.
Miller states in the video that it will take a year just for the cars to be built, which means we might not know for a while who will be stepping into Max's shoes.
Mad Max 4 currently is on target for a 2011 release date.
