Weta Workshop to work on next Mad Max film

Weta Workshop will create costume and dummies for the next Mad Max movie.

The Wellington-based special effects experts said they were "very excited" to be working with director George Miller, who also directed the three previous Mad Max movies.

But the fourth will have a new Max with British actor Tom Hardy taking over from Mel Gibson, who took the lead in the previous films.

Starring alongside Hardy in Mad Max: Fury Road are Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult.

The film is for release in 2012.

Weta would work on conceptual design, specialty makeup effects, costuming and dummies for the film.
