Mad Max: The Wastelands
Though there’s demand for it, talk of a sequel to “Mad Max: Fury Road” remains premature at this point it would seem. Though having already scored a rumored title – “Mad Max: The Wasteland” – “Fury Road” star Charlize Theron did not seem to know anything about another ‘Max’ film when asked about it this week.

Speaking with USA Today, Theron says: “What’s Wasteland? This is all news to me. I have not heard anything like that.”

Untitled Brad Peyton Project
Brad Peyton (“San Andreas”) has signed on to helm a high-concept action-adventure film about a military team for Sony Pictures. Neal H. Moritz and Ori Marmur will produce.
