It's been awhile since we've heard anything on George Miller's long awaited Mad Max: Fury Road film. The film has been in and out of pre-production for a couple of years now. The movie is finally going to start moving forward and go in front of cameras this coming April in Namibia. We've heard over the years that this would be the first of two new Mad Max films. The second film is titled Mad Max: Furiosa Today we've now learned that Mad Max: Fury Road will actually be the first of three movies.
Miller recently talked to the Australian Financial Review, about how his new Mad Max movie started as a single story, and then gradually grew into a new trilogy.
We started with [Fury Road], but we then started to do a second story and a third. We've written the script for the second and almost finished the third. We never intended to, they were part of the exploration of the characters.
We have no idea where the story for these films will go, Miller didn't offer any details. But, the fact that we will most likely be getting a trilogy of mad Max films with Tom Hardy is pretty freakin' awesome! Like all sequels though, any sequel depends on how well the first movie does at the box office. So lets just hope they turn out being extremely well made entertaining movies.
If things don't go as planned Miller has an animated film project he wants to work on called the Fur Brigade that he's labeling as "the most ambitious thing we've ever done."
What do you all think about seeing a new Trilogy of Mad Max films?
