The much loved movie Mad Max Fury Road (2017) is finally getting another installment! And it’s going to be what everyone was asking for when the movie first came out a furiosa spin off. And according to Variety George Miller is doing auditions Via Skype right now.
It is also being reported that he’s been in talks with Anya Taylor-Joy who starred in split. It is being rumored that she might get casted as Furisoa herself and this movie will be a prequel as well. Although there is no hard evidence proving that to be the case.
But because of current world events it’s making the preproduction a little hard right now for the movie. But it looks like it shouldn’t affect the actual production because they start production next year in 2021.
George Miller has said, “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. We’re in preparation on that as well. It’s an interesting question, the idea of multi-tasking. I discuss this with other filmmakers and I think what happens to me is that when you’re working on one thing, and you get so distracted and focused on that one thing, it’s like a creative holiday to focus on the other one for a bit. It helps you achieve that objectivity, to look at the thing afresh each time and say, I thought I was doing this, but it doesn’t seem to be the case now.”
“The more different the films are, the more interesting that is. A really good example: I was working on Happy Feet Two while Fury Road was getting up and then falling down. They couldn’t have been more different. One was animation, the other live action. It worked for me.”
And he needed to let the whole Warner Bros thing play out. Which was why Mad Max was set in a sort of limbo. According to him Warner Bros was fighting him over his film being 120 minutes long and rated R when they say they said they wanted a 100 minute film rated PG-13. So that was the reason he couldn’t do anything until now. But now that he is we’re excited to see what he does with it. And hopefully this coronavirus stuff will have subsided enough for them to get started right on schedule.
