Are There Two Mad Max Films In Development?

It seems Mad Max: Fury Road might receive its sequel after all, as the 70-year-old George Miller stated that there are two distinct projects in development. Still, these projects have to wait as the director stated: “I want to do a small film without special effects before I do any of that, just to do it quickly.” The reason is a understandable one, as “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.”

It is a similar story to Joss Whedon’s pet project Much Ado About Nothing, which he directed during the break between The Avengers and Avengers: Age of Ultron. It is interesting though that he has two projects planned and even gives some insight into the projects, as they “dug down deep into the backstory, not only of the characters, but of every vehicle. How the steering wheels became religious artefacts and things like that. So we ended up with two scripts without really trying. We’re talking to the studio about it as we speak, but which one of the two stories will happen next, I’m not sure.”[1]
