Although he had previously said he’d like to keep going with the franchise, maybe don’t hold your breath for a Miller-directed sequel to Mad Max: Fury Road.
In October last year Miller was quoted as saying “We shot Fury Road for eight months, that’s a lot. Every day in the heat and the dust, doing these stunts, it’s very wearing.”
Now it seems that wear was enough to throw in the Mad Max towel, with Miller reportedly telling The New York Post “I won’t make more ‘Mad Max’ movies.”
Miller blames the excessive time it took to shoot Fury Road, saying the film “was forever getting completed.”
“I’ve shot in Australia in a field of wild flowers and flat red earth when it rained heavily forever. We had to wait 18 months and every return to the US was 27 hours. Those ‘Mad Maxes’ take forever. I won’t do those anymore.”
