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.
‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ is the most recent entry in the franchise, but, despite its rave reviews and solid box office return, legal disputes between Miller and Warner Bros. prevented a new film from happening. Tom Hardy, taking over the role of Max from Mel Gibson, and Charlize Theron starred in the sequel.
There is currently no release window yet, or plot details.
