Mad Max: Tom Hardy replaced by Mel Gibson via DeepFake

The famous post-apocalyptic dieselpunk series of films “Mad Max” planned to connect the star of the first three films, Mel Gibson, to the filming of the fourth part of the franchise.

The project was in “production hell” for about 17 years, because of which Gibson was forced to cede his iconic role to British actor Tom Hardy. Thanks to DeepFake technology, which allows you to replace part of the original image with another, it became possible to visualize how the original performer of Max Rokatansky would have looked in Mad Max: Fury Road.

A YouTube user under the nickname Shamook posted on his channel an excerpt from the movie “Mad Max: Fury Road”, where Mel Gibson’s face replaces the face of Tom Hardy. Even though Hardy did not try to copy Gibson, the latter’s face organically fit into the British mimicry in his work on the role.

We will remind, earlier the user has already published DeepFake, where he showed Harrison Ford in the image of Han Solo from “Han Solo. Star Wars: Stories ”, and also introduced Charlize Theron as Captain Marvel, and Tom Cruise as Iron Man.

Mad Max: Fury Road was released on May 14, 2015. The action movie won six Academy Awards and grossed $ 378 million worldwide.
