It’s been a hot minute since the release of George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road and we’re finally going to get a new movie from him titled Three Thousand Years of Longing, which will star Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba.
While speaking with IndieWire he mentioned that they’ll begin pre-production in the next couple of months with filming set to begin in early 2020.
MILLER: “We’re starting pre-production before the end of the year and shooting early next year.”
George also reaffirms that those long-gestating Mad Max sequels are going to eventually happen.
MILLER: “There are two stories, both involving Mad Max, and also a Furiosa story. We’re still solving, we’ve got to play out the Warners thing, it seems to be pretty clear that it’s going to happen.”
The reason it’ll likely happen after some studio hiccups they’ll likely end up clearing up those previous hurdles to those Mad Max sequels happening.
MILLER: “It all started because of the chaos at Warner Bros. and not Kevin Tsujihara, it was pre all that. He wasn’t the antagonist, because a lot of people didn’t know what was going on and were not prepared to make a definitive stand; everybody was running around fearful, it seems, through three regimes. It was hard to get anyone’s attention, so we went to litigation. The chaos has stabilized and it’s become extremely positive as the dust seems to have settled after [the AT&T merger].”
I’m shocked Warner Bros. has been dragging their feet for this long and not trying to mend bridges with Miller to secure those sequels as they’re going get a huge amount of interest as Fury Road as gathered a large following and appreciation from action movie fans.
