It seems that the writer/director of a classic action trilogy is looking to do a fourth film in a much different way. According to MTV Movies Blog, writer/director George Miller wants to bring the classic Mad Max character back for a fourth film. However, the filmmaker wants to make this as a 3-D anime film, and without Mel Gibson supplying the voice.

"We'll probably go a different route," Miller told the site. He also added that he was planning on using story elements from a live-action fourth film that was supposed to happen in 2003, but was scrapped due to financial constraints due to the Iraq invasion. The plan is to shoot this in stereoscopic 3-D and they're shooting for an R rating.

"I see myself as someone who is very curious about storytelling and all its various media," Miller said. "I've always loved anime, in particular the Japanese sensibility. It's something I've always wanted to do."
