George Miller Is Not Leaving the ‘Mad Max’ Franchise

George Miller Is Not Leaving the ‘Mad Max’ Franchise

Mad Max: Fury Road originally took shape in the early 2000s, when Mel Gibson was still being eyed to come back as Max Rockatansky from the first three movies, Mad Max, Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior and Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. When the project was reworked with Tom Hardy as Max and Charlize Theron as Furiosa, it took a whopping three years to complete production. All of that hard work finally paid off this May, when it was released in theaters and became a commercial and critical smash hit.

Earlier today, Mad Max: Fury Road earned 10 Oscar nominations, including one for Best Picture and another for George Miller as Best Director. It had the second most nominations of any movie this year, just behind The Revenant's 12 nominations. It still remains to be seen how this blockbuster will fare during Oscar season, but in a year like this where there are no front-runners for Best Picture, anything is possible.

‘Mad Max’ Director Says No to ‘Man of Steel 2’

‘Mad Max’ Director Says No to ‘Man of Steel 2’

A straight-up sequel to 2013's Man of Steel has never been officially confirmed by Warner Bros., with filmmaker Zack Snyder revealing that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is Man of Steel 2, "in a way." He did add that it would be "interesting" to see what another standalone Superman movie would entail. The original Man of Steel earned over $668 million at the box office, with stars Henry Cavill (Superman/Clark Kent), Amy Adams (Lois Lane), Diane Lane (Martha Kent) and Laurence Fishburne (Perry White) reprising their roles in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

George Miller did add in the same interview that he hopes his next movie is much smaller, without any special effects or stunts. The filmmaker is developing a Mad Max: Fury Road sequel, which has the working title Mad Max: The Wasteland, but it seems clear that he wants to tackle something much smaller in scale before returning to the violent world of Max Rockatansky. The filmmaker didn't specify whether or not he had a smaller project lined up yet, but hopefully we'll hear more about what he's doing next very soon.
