Mad Max: Fury Road is a post-apocalyptic action thriller. The film is the fourth installment and a revisiting of the Mad Max series. The film is a combined Australian-American venture and was released in 2015. The original started in 1979 and starred Mel Gibson in the titular role. Subsequently, in the sequel, Tomy Hardy relaced Mel Gibson.
Mad Max: Fury Road garnered the love of audiences worldwide. Both critics and fans adored the film and it was nominated for several Academy Awards. Consequently, the question that comes to mind is, will there be a Mad Max: Fury Road 2? Can we expect a sequel?
Let’s find out!
Will there be a Mad Max: Fury Road 2?
All we can do is hope. So, maybe. Okay, probably. The chances are incredibly high.
While there have been no official announcements regarding the release of a Mad Mad: Fury Road 2, the film’s director, Geroge Miller has been the ray of hope. He has kept alive the rumors and the hope for the release of a sequel. Wait a moment, he has spoken about not just one, but two follow-ups. These include a sequel under the working title Mad Max: The Wasteland and a prequel that is known as Furiosa. Tom Hardy also revealed that he had signed a three-film contract.
In an interview with Deadline in December 2019, Miller said that he wasn’t done with the Mad Max story and that there would be more Mad Max to come.
Mad Max: Fury Road 2: Cast
Tom Hardy will be there for sure. He’s signed a three-film contract which definitely puts him on the cast list. Charlize Theron has expressed an interest in reprising her role. In an interview at the San Diego Comic-Con, Tom Hardy revealed that not only was he willing, but that the entire cast was waiting for the go-ahead.
When can we expect that sequel you mentioned?
Well, considering that Mad Max: Fury Road 2 is still in pre-production, the chances of the film being released soon are low. But, if it is in pre-production, the chances of the release being too far away are also low. So, I wouldn’t worry too much.
But, George Miller sued Warner Bros for $7 million over money owed to his production companies. Now, fans may have to wait for all this to blow over before they can expect a sequel.
