Tom Hardy ready for next Mad Max film.

Tom Hardy has revealed he is "totally ready" to reprise the role of Mad Max in the next film in a planned trilogy.

The British actor said he was "looking forward" to a follow-up to Mad Max: Fury Road, which screens at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday.

The new film sees Hardy step into the shoes of Mel Gibson, who played Max in George Miller's 1979 original.

The two-hour post-apocalyptic action movie sees Hardy's Max and another character played by Charlize Theron pursued by villains in a brutal road battle.

Australian director Miller insisted on using real vehicles and shooting in a remote desert in west Africa, resulting in a tough seven-month shoot for the film's stars.
