But he says that isn’t why he recast the lead part in the post-apocalyptic auto action franchise. The Australian director helped launch Gibson, now 58, to stardom three decades ago in the trilogy featuring stark desert landscapes, intense car chases and a bleach-blonde Tina Turner. Miller originally hoped to bring Gibson back as Max Rockatansky for the fourth film.
