Three New Mad Max Films?!
Set for production next year, it seems, is Fury Road. Furiosa has been scripted and storyboarded, and now, Miller has gotten deep into the writing of a third part. Here are the key quotes:
Fury Road was to shoot in Broken Hill in September last year, then April 2011, but heavy rain had turned the desert into a flower garden and the water table stubbornly refused to drop. The film will now shoot in Namibia from April with additional filming and post-production back in Australia.
Miller has, in fact, written a whole new trilogy. “We started with [Fury Road], but we then started to do a second story and a third,” he says. “We’ve written the script for the second and almost finished the third. We never intended to, they were part of the exploration of the characters.”
