George Miller had some legal issues to iron out before returning to Mad Max, but it looks like the next entry is going ahead, within months even. Here is what GWW says:
Exclusive: With the legal issues out of the way, writer-director George Miller is ready to return to the post-apocalyptic world of Mad Max!
Back in December, Miller confirmed that a new ‘Mad Max’ movie was in the works, but I’ve learned he’s officially been given the green light to film the new pic in Australia sometime in the late Fall. Tom Hardy’s return as the titular character has yet to be confirmed.
Before pre-production officially begins on the film, Miller will direct ‘Three Thousand Years of Longing,’ starring Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton, starting this March.
Hardy will probably return (?), but I don’t think anyone would complain if the GOAT returned instead.
