“Mad Max: Fury Road” has opened to a great start at the box office -- and director George Miller already has a sequel on his mind. In a recent interview on the Q&A Podcast with Jeff Goldsmith, Miller revealed that the follow-up will be titled “Mad Max: The Wasteland.”
“We’ve got one screenplay and a novella. It happened because with the delays [on 'Fury Road'] and writing all the backstories, they just expanded,” he said about the sequel, reported Collider.
Though the title might be in the place, other things about the sequel have yet to finalized. When asked about the sequel’s storyboarding, Miller said, “No, no, no; I just finished this movie 12 days ago. I said to someone it’s like asking a woman who’s just given birth, ‘When are you having your next baby?" reported IGN.
Moreover, it is also not known whether Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy will reprise their roles in the possible sequel as, according to Theron’s previous interview with Esquire, “Mad Max: Fury Road” was a not an easy film to shoot. The film was shot in a desert and Theron said it was “maddening sometimes.” She added that the actors often worked without a script.
Reportedly, both Theron and Hardy found working on “Mad Max: Fury Road” to be a challenging task. The film premiered May 7 in Los Angeles and opened more broadly May 14. The film also scored a screening at the 68th Cannes Film Festival in France.
Also in the case are Nicholas Hoult, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Riley Keough, Zoë Kravitz, Abbey Lee and Courtney Eaton. The film has received rave reviews from critics and has been praised for its exhilarating action sequences.
