Oh what a day… what a lovely day! At Least for fans of “Mad Max: Fury Road” with director George Miller confirming two more sequels to the post-apocalyptic vehicular manslaughter that is Mad Max. Read on for more details.
Miller was recently in conversation with Top Gear when he promised not one but two sequels to the hugely popular Mad Max reboot. Apparently Miller has so much material left over from the ‘Fury Road’ script, that he can get two more feature films out of it. Miller has confirmed that while he is currently writing both scripts, he will be back to direct the first one.
Miller started the ‘Road Warrior’ franchise almost single-handedly when he wrote, produced and directed Mel Gibson in the original Mad Max in 1980. Talking about Fury Road, Miller revealed how the film itself lived and died and lived again.
“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.”
“Fury Road” was finally rained out to Australia and shot in the Namibian desert with Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron and created what is now cinematic history (via Tracking Board).The movies perpetually kinetic pace, visually stunning set pieces and rich mythology has lead to create what has been called ‘the best action movie of all time.’
In the meanwhile, it is worth remembering that Miller went to direct “Happy Feet” in the middle, and he won the oscar for it. The 70-year-old director also said that he would take a break in the middle of all the explosions and car-chases to direct a more mellow movie at some point.
