It took George Miller a very long time to get Mad Max: Fury Road made, but when it finally hit theaters earlier this year, the rumors began to fly regarding the director’s next film. While he has shot down the notion that he’d be directing Man of Steel 2, it’s looking like the man has a few intriguing cards left up his sleeve.
The 70-year-old director recently sat down with BBC’s Top Gear to discuss plans beyond Fury Road:
“I want to do a small film without special effects before I do any of that, just to do it quickly,” he said. “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.”
A small film sounds like a nice change of pace… wait, did he just say they have two more movies planned!? Miller confirmed this by saying, “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.”
Back in May, Miller did allude to more Mad Max coming, but this solidifies these plans a bit more. Maybe we will actually be getting that Furiosa spin-off while also following Tom Hardy as he sorta hangs out and grunts his way through a standalone Max Rockatansky story. We’d be completely fine with that.
