The “Mad Max” film franchise may have took a lot of time to keep the ball rolling for a sequel but to borrow a line from the 2015 follow-up, “What a lovely day!” of a sequel “Mad Max: Fury Road” was.
“Mad Max” co-creator and director George Miller has long been in the receiving end of being inquired as to when the fourth installment of the “Road Warrior” will rage its way into the big screen once more along with other “Mad Max” related points.
First, the next “Mad Max” movie will not be called, “Mad Max: Wasteland” as what has been circulated. Miller explained that it was just merely a working title and the project will have a different name. The director has long announced that he has already begun the additional scripts for the “Mad Max” continuations.
The Academy Award-winning director also addressed his mixed feelings discussing the sequel’s timetable and the giving away of plot elements which have been customary practice.
“The more I speculate about what’s happening, the more I try to avoid spoilers this far out, and also I find myself talking around in circles,” Miller explained.
Miller assured fans however that he and the studio are “definitely in the discussion about making more of these, but the timing of it, I’m really not sure”, especially pointing to the fact that Tom Hardy has signed to a multi-picture deal with Warner Bros. Pictures.
“Mad Max: Fury Road” was not just a box-office smash as it raked in $374.7 million dollars. The Hardy and Charlize Theron led road movie was a critical darling as it under consideration for the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI) the best film of 2015 according to The Hollywood Reporter.
