Is George Miller thinking about a Fury Road sequel, does he have ideas in mind, or is he going to take a break? It’s a bit of both. Miller tells EW‘s Sirius radio show that;
“Yes, I have [zeroed in on the storyline for the sequel]. And certainly [I’m] having conversations about it [with the studio]. But I’m not sure if it’s the very next movie I want to do. I’ve got something a bit smaller before we go back out into the wasteland – something that’s contemporary that we can get through fairly quickly. And something with not too much technical difficulty. Something more performance-based and so on, just to clear the exhaust.”
And what about Charlize Theron’s Furiosa character?
“Yeah, she’s a pretty compelling character so it would be great to tell her story. Her backstory is really interesting. We only allude to it in this movie because this movie is on the run; people don’t have much time for recreational talk. But you pick up, you have a sense of her having gone through stuff. That’s what the film is trying to do. You’re trying to put a lot of iceberg under the tip, I like saying. One of the things that’s really gratifying, people are reading the film more than just the surface – the events of the movie, and just picking up a lot of stuff underneath it, which is very deliberate… So in many ways, the audience is picking up a lot about Furiosa — or enough to intrigue. And she’s got an interesting story.”
It’s still ‘Mad Max’… right?
