Mad Max Casting Rumours August 4, 2009 Jeremy Renner linked to Mad Max 4 Jeremy Renner is reportedly linking to the upcoming Mad Max reboot. Renner, who was recently confirmed for the upcoming Ben Affleck’s movie The Town, has claimed that he had arranged a meeting with director George Miller. “I’m fighting to do the new Mad Max film… That might be next summer,” he said. “I’m screen-testing and meeting George Miller.” Renner’s comments support rumours that Mel Gibson will not return to the action franchise. Miller said earlier this year that he “probably would go a different route” in casting the film, which he said would be produced as a 3D anime.
