For all those fans of the movie, quite a masterpiece in fact, they should be glad to find out about this latest juicy piece of news about a ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ (2015) sequel. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, it appears that the ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ sequel may finally be coming out of development limbo!
In an interview with Deadline about his recent film project titled ‘Three Thousand Years of Longing’, starring Idris Elba (‘Thor: Ragnarok’) and Tilda Swinton (‘Avengers: Endgame’), the ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ director offered this piece of news:
“I’m not done with the Mad Max story and I think you have to be a multi-tasker and there’s certainly another Mad Max coming down the pike after this. We’re in preparation on that as well. It’s an interesting question, the idea of multi-tasking. I discuss this with other filmmakers and I think what happens to me is that when you’re working on one thing, and you get so distracted and focused on that one thing, it’s like a creative holiday to focus on the other one for a bit. It helps you achieve that objectivity, to look at the thing afresh each time and say, I thought I was doing this, but it doesn’t seem to be the case now.”
Indiewire reports the sequel has been under development hiatus due to a lawsuit between Miller’s production company Kennedy Miller Mitchell and Warner Bros. The company claims it is eligible for $9 million after filming ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ with the agreed production budget of $157 million. Warner Bros. claims the company “broke contract over the film’s intended running time and rating” with a 120-minute R rated film as opposed to a 100-minute PG-13 film.
The success of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ as an action franchise is a financial profit for Warner Bros and the studio has announced plans for more sequels to the movie franchise while George Miller deserves more creative chances to tell his vision.
Is Warner Bros. handling George Miller’s contract equitably? Sound off in the comments and also share on social media.
