Charlize Theron rumoured for Mad Max 4

Tom Hardy may be in contention for the lead

Fresh casting rumours drifting from the early days of George Miller's planned Mad Max 4 suggest Charlize Theron and Bronson's Tom Hardy may be among the top choices for leading roles.

Nothing has been set yet, since A) Miller is a ways off from locking the details down and B) hasn't made any formal announcement, but according to E! News, Theron is the director's pick for the main female part.

We're guessing that Hardy surged on to Miller's casting radar after his turn as brutal prisoner Charles Bronson in the dark comedy drama, and he may well end up taking over the title role from Mel Gibson.

And what of Gibson? Miller has gone on record to say that he's likely too old to play the part now and that he wouldn't be interested either.

For now, however, it's all just so much speculation. Miller's definitely gearing the film up, but according to E, all the main roles are just listed with first letters to make sure now proper info leaks out…

Would Tom Hardy be a good Max? Or is Mel the only man for the role?

      I am a big fan of Hardy's and I want him to have success with a big movie but without Gibson I have no interest in Mad Max 4.
