All talk regarding the newest Mad Max — subtitled Fury Road — has relegated a proposed second sequel, Furiosa, to the rear. If anything, it’s because the fourth installment has had enough trouble getting into gear; a fifth is really starting to look into an uncertain future. However, in an Australian Financial Review (via BleedingCool) piece on writer and director George Miller, it’s reported that the helmer actually plans to make an entire new trilogy with his beloved character.
Here’s his quote on the enterprise:
“We started with [Fury Road], but we then started to do a second story and a third. 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.”
Of course, the hazard of a filmmaker returning to an esteemed franchise (Star Wars, Indiana Jones) always exists, and Miller even had a recent stumble when it came to retreading some old ground. The fact of the matter is, it’s thrilling to simply know that Tom Hardy is taking up the Max mantle, with Charlize Theron at his side, in less than six months; one movie will do me fine. Okay — so long as he has material that can justifiably be told over the course of six hours or so, great. In the meantime, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
It would be a little irresponsible of me to not also mention a new animated project that he and his creative partner, Doug Mitchell, are planning: Fur Brigade, or “the most ambitious thing we’ve done.” Don’t ask me, because I have zero idea.
Are you excited to know that Miller has an entire trilogy in mind?

Grand Piano is a film that is so masterfully done that it seems silly one would ever have doubts that the story could be pulled off. Much of that has to do with the work of the blossoming director Eugenio Mira, who actually created animatics of the film to get everyone on the same page. Starring Elijah Wood as [...]
