Charlize Theron Shaves Her Head for 'Mad Max: Fury Road'

Looks like Charlize Theron (Monster, Æon Flux) was spotted in Namibia this week with her newly adopted son where she is about to start filming Mad Max: Fury Road any day.   Apparently Theron's character, Furiosa needs to have a shaved head.  Honestly, living in the desert, in Africa, in a post apocalyptic world, I can't imagine anyone having hair.

The film is a reinvention of the Mad Max series which made Mel Gibson a star.

Tom Hardy (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises) will star as Max.

 I have a deep respect for Theron. She manages to captivate me in almost every film she is in. Her Academy Award winning performance in Monster is what made her a household name, but she has really risen to be one of the best actresses in Hollywood and it has nothing to do with her Dior J'adore beauty

Tech Note:
The film was originally supposed to be shot with 3D cameras but that is not happening .  Now, according to news reports, Warner Bros. will be using Alexa digital cameras combined with Canon and Olympus DSLR's.

Warner Bros. is obviously trying to cut costs where it can and will employ digital 3D after the film is shot.  That didn't work out so well for some films (Clash of the Titans being one of them) but it did however, work out well for The Avengers.

 We shall see.
