Paging Mel Gibson: Charlize Theron has signed on for the revival of the actor's post-apocalyptic Mad Max movies.

Charlize will star in the fourth installment of the franchise - last seen on our screens in 1985 - with Mad Max: Fury Road.

British actor Tom Hardy will be the Burning Plain beauty's leading man when they start filming in Australia next August.

No news on whether Mel — who launched his career as an Aussie unknown in the original 1979 Max Max movie - will be involved.
