After the success of this summer’s Mad Max: Fury Road, most everyone assumed we would be getting another sequel. And now it looks like we no longer have to assume. Another film in the franchise appears to be a sure thing at the moment, but there is still some confusion surrounding the project.
Apparently, there are two competing sequel scripts floating around out there, and no one knows which one will get made, not even director George Miller.
During a recent interview with Top Gear, the directed admitted Warner Bros. was interested in producing the two scripts…
“So we ended up with two scripts, without really trying. We’re talking to the studio about it as we speak, but which one of the two stories will happen next, I’m not so sure. I want to do a small film without special effects before I do any of that, just to do it quickly. We shot Fury Road for eight months… that’s a lot. Every day in the heat and the dust, doing these stunts, it’s very wearing. We’ve got two more planned, but at some point in the future.”
As you can see from the quote above, it doesn’t look like he’s in a rush to film the project. It will probably be at least three years before another Mad Max film is released, but that’s okay! The long wait works for a series like this.
We’ll keep you posted on the sequel news, but like we said, it could be a long wait.[mashshare]
