After last week’s campaign to get Mel Gibson’s brother cast in the titular role of Avalanche Studios’ Mad Max game, it appears that Donal won’t be following in his brother’s footsteps.
Speaking with AusGamers, director of Urban Legend Jamie Blanks and Donal Gibson – who released an excellent demo reel, last week – told the publication that their efforts weren’t enough, but that they appreciated the overwhelming support:
“We understand that Avalanche Studios would like to take a different route with the project. We wish them all the best, and every success with the Mad Max videogame. We want to take this opportunity to thank the gaming community, and most especially the many fans worldwide, for their positive reaction to the voice demo and for all of their generous support. We’d like to add that we are both looking forward to our new projects in the future. Many Thanks!”
It would have been perfect. Really. The brother of Mad Max becomes Mad Max. However, I’m sure Avalanche were thinking of leading men after their announcement that Max would indeed be Australian. C’est la vie.
We’ll always have this…
