The Australian is reporting that filming for George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road has been delayed further and pre-production may not even continue until August or November of 2011.
“The delay has left many major film crew members without work amid fears the high Australian dollar could ultimately kill the film as its budget grows,” says the newspaper.
Production is now anticipated to begin in the Broken Hill region in February 2012.
It’s the second delay for the film. In July, Kennedy Miller Productions said unseasonal rains had made the Broken Hill area too fertile and production was put back to later this year.
ComingSoon.net has learned that David Morse, Luke Wilson, Hank Azaria (in a cameo appearance) and Elvis’ granddaughter Riley Keough have joined the cast of director Nick Cassavetes’ Yellow.
They join previously-announced cast members Sienna Miller, Lucy Punch, Ben Foster, Melanie Griffith and Gena Rowlands in the drama about a young woman with a drug habit and a myriad of other problems.
Cassavetes co-wrote the film with his actress wife Heather Wahlquist, who is starring in the movie as well.
Cassavetes’ credits include John Q, The Notebook, Alpha Dog and My Sister’s Keeper.
Riley is in talks to take a role in ‘Fury Road,’ the fourth installment of the ‘Mad Max’ franchise from writer-director George Miller, according to HeatVision.
This outing — whose plot is being kept a secret — takes place a short while after the story line in 1985′s ‘Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome,’ which means that Tom Hardy (‘Inception’) will have no problem playing the lead — we’re not talking an aged Max here. Keough will play one of the “Five Wives,” a group of women that Max must protect from the bad guys. Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Teresa Palmer and Adelaide Clemens also have been cast. The film is prepping for a start date early next year.

Director Bradley Rust Gray’s (“The Exploding Girl,” “Chinatown Film Project”) latest, “Jack and Diane” is just finishing its third week of shooting in a very warm downtown Manhattan. The film stars Juno Temple (“Greenberg,” “Kaboom”) and Riley Keough (“The Runaways”) as a duo inspired by a chance meeting Gray had had some years ago.
“It’s about two girls who fall in love and one is leaving and is trying to hide it,” Gray told indieWIRE Wednesday morning from the shoot. “I was working on this short film - a student film - about ten years ago. I moved to New York City and I ran into these two girls who looked like the two characters in my short (though the characters in the film were actually boys). Their names were Jack and Diane and I wanted to create a story around them.”
Currently shooting in the Lower East Side, Chinatown, Cobble Hill in Brooklyn and other NYC location, the film revolves around the two women who meet in the city and spend the night kissing. The production’s official synopsis continues, “Diane’s charming innocence quickly begins to open Jack’s tough skinned heart. But when Jack discovers that Diane is moving she pushes her away. Unable to grasp her new feelings, Diane’s emotions begin to cause unexplainable violent changes to her body. Through these awkward and insecure feelings, the two girls must struggle to turn their first love into an enduring one.”
“I’ve been working on the film for about seven years now,” Gray said. Both he and producer Karin Chien have worked on other projects along with fellow producer, So Yong Kim (director of “Treeless Mountain,” which Gray produced and edited) and Jen Gatien.
Both Chien and Gray gave praise to their cast and crew, with some of the latter also having waited a number of years for the project to get underway.
“It’s been extremely thrilling I never thought we’d get to this until we got to the first shot. It’s been a long wait but it’s been really worth it. The cast is great and the crew is phenomenal. Our second A.D. waited and waited for ‘Jack and Diane,’ so it’s incredibly gratifying.

L.A.-based actress Riley Keough is featured in the latest pages of Vogue (with Gwyneth Paltrow on the cover).
In the chic photo spread, the 21-year-old oldest grandchild of Elvis Presley shows off the rather “unreconstructed 1950s combination of cleaving cardigan and swaying skirt.
“I like ladylike,” says Riley. “I like lipstick. When I am dressing up, I get the whole vibe going.”
Ms. Keough just wrapped on her new film Jack and Diane, in which she plays the girlfriend of Juno Temple. She even chopped off her long platinum locks and dyed it dark for the role!

And the amazing thing is, you’ve already finished your next film. Right?
Lance Daly: Yeah. (Laughs) I finished a film called The Good Doctor. We finished shooting it in March. We’ll finish all of the editing, and sound and music, in September. Hopefully it will come out in the States early next year. But it is an American film. We shot it in Los Angeles. Orlando Bloom is the lead. He is from England, but we had a great American cast. This was a really great ensemble, and it was interesting to work with an American crew for the first time. I’m sure that will be out here sometime next year. It’s a suspense thriller.
Did you continue this idea of mixing fantasy with reality in the film?
Lance Daly: Actually, yes. A little bit. Its about an eccentric young doctor who lives in his own world half the time. He lives in his own head. There is a fantasy element. I like to think that it has my finger prints on it. It feels like the same voice. Lets see, after it’s finished, if that voice is still there.
Sure enough new proposals flooded in with stars attached to them. But the one that most caught Daly’s attention was The Good Doctor, an Alfred Hitchcock-like thriller about a frustrated doctor who’s desperately eager to impress his colleagues.
When a young female patient gives him all the praise and attention he’s been craving, Orlando Bloom’s unscrupulous doctor messes around with her treatment so she has to spend more time in the hospital with him. It’s a shocking premise, and the word is that Bloom is sensational in the role.
Adds Daly, “Each day Bloom’s doctor keeps the girl just sick enough to leave her in his care. They form a close bond, but events spiral out of control. Soon he has no choice but to cover his tracks by any means necessary…” That’s the kind of high stakes set up Daly excels at.
