I was happy when news finally came that the Mad Max update was finally going to get shooting in early 2012. Now my cup runneth over with the news that not only is director George Miller going to be shouting orders at Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron in Mad Max: Fury Road, but that he is looking at turning it into a trilogy!
That’s right bitches! Mad Max will go waaaay beyond Thunderdome!
While talking to the Financial Times, Miller had this to say, “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. There aren’t any details on the second and third scripts, but one has to assume that a great deal will depend upon the financial fortunes of Fury Road. That movie is slated to shoot in Namibia next April, after rains and a subsequent explosion of decidedly non-post-apocalyptic foliage in planned Australian locations delayed the shoot” Miller also had some comments on the film’s budget and hinted that it was between $100and $200 million!
