Mad Max: Fury Road is getting a sequel, director George Miller confirms, but it probably won't be out for a long time.
After invigorating the Mad Max franchise, George Miller's next film is far removed from the action flick. But Miller is far from done with the bloody, scorched post-apocalyptic world of mayhem and metal. In a recent interview with Deadline, Miller says Max's story is far from finished.
"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," Miller said.
This isn't the first time Miller talked about a Fury Road sequel. In fact, two films are planned.
In 2017, Miller said that both scripts for the Fury Road sequels are finished. Tom Hardy is set to return.
Miller's next film, Three Thousand Years of Longing starring Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton, is due out March 2020. It could be another year or so before we get the first Fury Road sequel.
