A new ‘Mad Max’ movie is coming soon.
‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ hit theaters four years ago. Now, director George Miller has confirmed there will be another movie coming soon. In an interview with Deadline about the production of his new film ‘Three Thousand Years of Longing,’ Miller confirmed a fifth Mad Max movie is in development.
“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,” Miller said. “We’re in preparation on that as well.”
The critically-acclaimed Australian director made his directorial debut with 1979’s ‘Mad Max’, whose success turned into the indie movie into an international box-office hit franchise. Miller followed up with ‘Mad Max 2’ in 1981 and ‘Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome’ in 1985.
The action series was over until 2015. ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ hit theaters in 2015 and starred Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. The movie was a hit and won several Oscar nominations for Best Picture and Best Director. ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ made over $378 million at the box office on a $150 million budget.
George Miller did not reveal any more details about a sequel. His next movie, ‘Three Thousand Years of Longing’, stars Idris Elba and Tilda Swindon and is currently in pre-production.
