George Miller is working on another Mad Max film


Mad Max: Fury Road did well at the box office with over $374 million worldwide and was a hit with critics with 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. It’s no surprise to learn that director George Miller is working on another Mad Max film. During an interview with Top Gear, the director has said that two scripts have been written already.

“This film [Fury Road] was green lit three times and fell over three times over a decade. We went to shoot with Mel Gibson back in 2001, but then 9/11 happened, and the American dollar collapsed against the Australian dollar close to 30 per cent, so we lost that amount of budget overnight….We were then rained out of Australia. The desert rained for the first time in 15 years, and we ended up in South West Africa, Namibia. But in this process, we had dug down deep into the backstory, not only of the characters, but of every vehicle. How the steering wheels became religious artifacts and things like that. So we ended up with two scripts, without really trying. We’re talking to the studio [Warner Bros] about it as we speak, but which one of the two stories will happen next, I’m not so sure.”

So is a Mad Max sequel next on Miller’s list? Probably not, since he wants to focus on smaller movies with little to no special effects and stunts.

It’s a big gap (30 years) between Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome and Mad Max Fury Road. Let’s hope it won’t be another 30 years for the next film.
