If there are better stunt professionals than the ones featured in Mad Max: Fury Road, we certainly haven’t seen them. Providing some of the most breathtaking real-life spectacles of that year, or any year, while getting little to no credit for their efforts, these unsung heroes deserve – at the very least — to stay fitfully employed. Thankfully, Warner Bros. feels the same, as the stunt team behind George Miller’s modern action extravaganza will now offer their services to James Wan’s upcoming Aquaman.
Australia’s 9 News (via /Film) recently did a profile on stunt coordinator Keir Beck and his team, where they announced their plans to work on the upcoming DC Comics adaptation:
[We’ll be doing] general stunt skills and fighting. If there’s water sequences obviously being capable and competent in water [is important].
While Beck wasn’t the only stunt coordinator credited on Mad Max: Fury Road, he still, nevertheless, helped make the film the glorious visual spectacle we know it as today. Most recently, he also worked on The Nice Guys, Hacksaw Ridge, The Darkness and Max Steel. He also provided his services to Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man Tell No Tales, which is set for release later this year.
Already seen in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, Aquaman will next appear in this year’s Justice League before he embarks on his own solo adventure, which begins shooting later this spring ahead of its October 5th, 2018 release.
