Mad Max is being turned into a video game next year. An Australian actor will voice the lead, but his last name isn’t Gibson.
Mel Gibson played Mad Max in the movie versions decades ago, but will not voice him in the 2014 video game. It sounds like his brother Donal Gibson won’t get the job either as Avalanche Studios decided against it.
Here’s what Donal Gibson had to say as revealed by Aussie Gamers:
“We understand that Avalanche Studios would like to take a different route with the project. We wish them all the best, and every success with the Mad Max video game. We want to take this opportunity to thank the gaming community, and most especially the many fans worldwide, for their positive reaction to the voice demo and for all of their generous support. We’d like to add that we are both looking forward to our new projects in the future. Many Thanks!”
Avalanche Studios has mentioned the voice of Mad Max will be an Australian however. Who that might be is still unknown at this stage.
