Charlize Theron to star in New Mad Max Movie..what about Mel?

The Hollywood Awards Gala Beverly Hills

Charlize is one of the stars named to be in the newest Mad Max movie. The Last Mad Max movie was over 20 years ago. I think that someone else will be taking over the Max role, but maybe just making Mel will make a cameo. The movie is kinda a future movie but set in a desert-like world that is hardly recognizable.
