More Mad Max and Furiosa movies ‘going to happen’ says George Miller

July 30th, 2019 by Marc Comments

Good news for fans of Mad Max: Fury Road… more movies are likely coming,

Writer/director George Miller has been with the franchise since the beginning and is looking to continue the story.

“The toughest film I ever made was the first Mad Max. I didn’t know much about filmmaking, and it was rather bewildering. I was aware of the process. It took me a good 10 years before I could watch that first movie again, because all I would see were the mistakes — the things I felt were left to do creatively. The same thing also happened to me with Fury Road,” Miller says

But a tough job never put Miller off: “There are two stories [sequels], both involving Mad Max, and also a Furiosa story. We’re still solving, we’ve got to play out the Warners thing, it seems to be pretty clear that it’s going to happen.”

In Fury Road, of course, Tom Hardy played Max while Charlize Theron made waves as the stoic and tough as hell Furiosa… so much so that fans have been crying out for more.

It seems that the AT&T merger at Warners caused a bit of chaos (‘everybody was running around fearful, it seems, through three regimes’) but Miller adds that it’s “become extremely positive as the dust seems to have settled after [the AT&T merger]”.

Hopefully that positivity will lead to more Max and more Furiosa… I know I’d pay for my tickets right here and now.

Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
