There's been quite a bit of confusion about when in the world George Miller will get around to actually filming the upcoming "Mad Max: Fury Road".

We know that after many years of waiting, and three years of actual scheduled dates, filming is finally taking place this year. Just when it will happen this year though hasn't been quite certain.

The latest word comes from Charlize Theron who tells Screen Rant that "I leave in like two and a half weeks and we start shooting I think around Mid-July in Namibia. I'm f**king dying, too, it's been three years. It's time to skin this cat already, so yeah, I'm very excited about it."

Interestingly, she also adds that the film isn't what we might expect - "Like with 'Snow White And The Huntsman,' there is so much potential to re-imagine that world. It's such an interesting world and how much it still resonates today after 20 years or whatever it's been. We're going back to that world but this is not a prequel or sequel or anything like that."
