After the trailer (here) for Mad Max: Fury Road got SDCC all in a kerfuffle, the 67-year-old writer director (of all the Mad Max movie), George Miller, talked about Fury Road’s place in the Max mythology.
Chatting to Filmschoolrejects, Miller said his new movie is part of a much bigger story that will not just involve sequels (if the first movie performs well enough): “In order to tell this story, we came up with two others. We’ve written the screenplay of one and the novelization of another, but it’s a very rough novel. We kept working on them while we were working on other things.”
So if Tom Hardy cuts the mustard as Max, expect to see a bigger world open up involving the Australian road warrior…
Mad Max: Fury Road opens on May 15, 2015.
