From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary “Mad Max” franchise, comes “Mad Max: Fury Road,” a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky. Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max (Tom Hardy) believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa (Charlize Theron). They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne), from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.
When Mad Max: Fury Road was first announced, the plan was for George Miller to direct two back-to-back sequels. But a lot of things changed throughout the prolonged production, which took a grueling 8 months. And the whole process left the filmmaker feeling exhausted. While some suspected the delays on Mad Max: Fury Road meant it was going to be a bomb, it actually turned out to be the critical darling of this past summer. And it was a hit with fans. Ever since its release, there has been talk of a sequel. George Miller has now confirmed with Top Gear that not one, but two more movies will move forward at some point. But it won't be soon. He wants to make another movie first.
George Miller actually has two completed scripts for a Mad Max: Fury Road sequel, though it's not known which one will move forward first. Details about the plot have been scarce because of this. And it's not clear which way Warner Bros. is leaning at the moment. No one is sure what will be the next Mad Max movie, though Mad Max: The Wasteland is what George Miller has been calling the fifth film in this long-running franchise.Read More
