Post Apocalyptic News: George Miller Says Three Mad Max Sequels May Happen

Now that numerous legal hurdles seem to be out of the way, it looks like George Miller is eager to get back on track with the Mad Max franchise. After Fury Road was a complete success critically and financially back in 2015, it looked like we might be getting more Max sooner than later. However, that didn't prove to be the case due to lawsuits between Miller and Warner Bros. that kept things in limbo since 2015. With that wrapping up, Miller says that there are three new Mad Max films that could happen. The first two would be direct sequels and a third would be about Charlize Theron's character, Furiosa. When speaking with IndieWire, he had this to say:

There are two stories, both involving Mad Max, and also a Furiosa story,” Miller said. “We’re still solving… we’ve got to play out the Warners thing.

He also added that:

"It seems to be pretty clear that it's going to happen."

In relation to the legal wrangling that was happening with Warner, Miller expanded on what was happening, stating that it's all getting cleared up. 

It all started because of the chaos at Warner Bros. and not Kevin Tsujihara, it was pre all that,” Miller explained. “He wasn’t the antagonist, because a lot of people didn’t know what was going on and were not prepared to make a definitive stand; everybody was running around fearful, it seems, through three regimes. It was hard to get anyone’s attention, so we went to litigation. The chaos has stabilized and it’s become extremely positive as the dust seems to have settled after (the AT&T merger).”

We would love to see Tom Hardy back in the role of Max before interest totally dies down again.
