Heath Ledger Was Set to Star in "Mad Max: Fury Road"

Posted: May 20th, 2015 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Heath Ledger Was Set to Star in "Mad Max: Fury Road"Submit Comment
When "Mad Max: Fury Road" was first announced in 2001, Mel Gibson was in talks to reprise his role. But then 9/11 happened and Gibson had a heavily publicized meltdown. When the project got back on its feet, it was time to recast.

During a new interview, director George Miller, who directed Gibson in the original films, revealed that before Tom Hardy was hired to play Max, there was a different actor being considered.

"Every time Heath [Ledger] would come through Sydney, he'd call in and we'd chat about Max," Miller told The Daily Beast. "He had that same thing that Mel and Tom Hardy have that maleness, charisma, and restless energy, which you need to play a relatively still character. The world lost someone great when he went. Tom was the next to walk through the door that had that vibe."

Hardy ended up with the role and was reportedly difficult to work, since he believed the project was a mess. When he eventually saw the final product, he made a public apologize to Miller at Cannes. "Mad Max: Fury Road" has a 98% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes and a sequel is already in the works.

gejala stroke ringan dan cara menanganinya secara alami harus diperhatikan selalu secara serius , karena saat ini kasus penyakit stroke banyak terjadi dikalangan masyarakat dari mulai stroke ringan hingga stroke berat.
Meski yang dialami masih gejala stroke ringan tapi penanganannya harus secara tepat karena bisa berakibat fatal jika tidak diatasi dengan obat stroke yang ampuh. Sebelum kita membahas lebih lanjut mengenai pengobatan stroke, maka kita harus mempelajari dulu tentang apa itu penyakit stroke, penyebab penyakit stroke, gejala stroke,
serta bahaya apa yang bisa muncul? Setelah itu baru kita bisa memilih obat stroke yang tepat yang akan kita gunakan.
