George Miller Confirms Two More ‘Mad Max’ Films To Come
Two more Mad Max films are on the way following the success of Mad Max: Fury Road, according to director George Miller.
Max Max Sequels On The Way
Coming off the grueling eight-month shoot of Mad Max: Fury Road, Miller recently admitted that he’d like his next project to be of a significantly lesser scale. “I want to do a small film without special effects… just do it quickly,” Miller told TopGear. “We shot Fury Road for eight months… that’s a lot. Every day in the heat and the dust, doing these stunts, it’s very wearing.”
Though Miller found making Mad Max exhausting, he seems to be onboard to helm not one, but two sequels for the franchise. The only question is which follow-up to tackle next.
“We’re talking to the studio about it as we speak, but which one of the two stories will happen next, I’m not so sure,” he said. “We’ve got two more planned, but at some point in the future.”
Previously, it’s been reported that there was more material developed than what Miller used for the final cut of Fury Road. It’s also been said that there is a spinoff following Charlize Theron‘s character Furiosa in the works with a script and art ready to go that just needs a greenlight.
Mad Max: Fury Road, starring Theron, Tom Hardy, Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, achieved both critical and commercial success back in May. To date, it’s grossed more that $150 million at the box office.
