‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Director George Miller Breaks Down Where the Franchise Stands Now

It’s been two years since George Miller released his epic Mad Max: Fury Road. When are we going to see another sequel to the amazing rebirth of Mad Max? In a recent interview the Australian filmmaker talked about where the franchise is, and what is coming next for Mad Max.

According to Miller, he and co-writer Nico Lathouris have two sequels written. One of which is titled Mad Max: The Wastelands. In an interview with The Independent, Miller says the sequels are just waiting to move forward, and that they were both written before Fury Road:

“We dug down deep into the subtext, the back story of all the characters, and indeed the world, and without really thinking about it, we wrote two other screenplays just as part of the bible of the stories.

Somewhere, if the planets align, there will be two other films. A movie like Fury Road is told in a very wild, helter-skelter way. So, the underlying logic of everything in the film had to be pretty rigorous otherwise the film would’ve been chaotic. So one of the advantages of the many delays was that we were able to spend time getting into these back stories.”

Miller went on to say that one fan-favorite character is returning to the franchise. The Door Warrior is returning in the sequels. He is the character that is playing the electric guitar during the big chase sequence in Fury Road:

“I know who his mother was, I know how it was that a man who is mute and blind survived the apocalypse, because I know his story very well! If we get to make another movie, the Doof Warrior will be there! I’m hard-wired for the imaginative life. It’s part of who I am. These characters and these worlds tend to swirl around in the back of your brain like imaginary friends. It’s easy to go back to them.”

Miller says that he will do another film before coming back to Mad Max to “reboot the brain”.
