Mad Max 'amazing' for Hardy

Tom Hardy has revealed that shooting Mad Max: Fury Road was an unforgettable experience.

The Dark Knight Rises star plays Max Rockatansky in George Miller's upcoming fourth instalment of the series, which also stars Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult.

"It was an amazing experience. It's a big, live-action, fully articulated stunts piece, which picks up where we left off with the Mel Gibson Mad Max and takes it to the next level," he said at the English National Ballet's Christmas performance of The Nutcracker.

Tom, who appeared as Batman's arch-nemesis Bane in Christopher Nolan's third Batman film this year, also confirmed that he is set to play Al Capone in a film called Cicero by Harry Potter filmmaker David Yates.

"Yes that is true, but it's a question of when. And who with, and how that works. But that is in the works," he continued.

"It's just a question of what comes first, who writes what and who's directing."

He also joked about his plans for 2013 - with a mountain climb on the list.

"I intend to maybe climb Everest, I intend to go out to Tanzania and Mozambique to work on an anti-poaching squad, I intend to go to Brooklyn for a while and play with pitbulls, and I intend to go to Siberia and do some work out there," he added.
