"There’s certainly another Mad Max coming down the pike," Miller tells Deadline in a new interview.
George Miller has secured financing for his next movie, “Three Thousand Years of Longing,” and has set a March production start in Australia with stars Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton (via Deadline). The movie will be Miller’s first directorial feature since 2015’s “Mad Max: Fury Road.” While Miller is taking a “Mad Max” break, he confirmed to Deadline that he will multitask during the “Three Thousand Years of Longing” production to work on pre-production on the next “Mad Max” movie. Miller says he’s already prepping the “Fury Road” sequel.
“I’m not done with the Mad Max story and I think you have to be a multitasker, and there’s certainly another Mad Max coming down the pike after this,” Miller said. “We’re in preparation on that as well. It’s an interesting question, the idea of multitasking. I discuss this with other filmmakers and I think what happens to me is that when you’re working on one thing, and you get so distracted and focused on that one thing, it’s like a creative holiday to focus on the other one for a bit. It helps you achieve that objectivity, to look at the thing afresh each time and say, I thought I was doing this, but it doesn’t seem to be the case now.”
The long wait for a “Fury Road” sequel has been the result of a lawsuit between Miller’s production company, Kennedy Miller Mitchell, and Warner Bros. The production company claimed it’s eligible for $9 million after it delivered “Fury Road” under the agreed budget of $157 million. Warner Bros. claims Kennedy Miller Mitchell broke contract over the film’s intended runtime and rating, delivering a 120-minute R-rated film when it allegedly agreed to a 100-minute PG-13 film. The tension between the two parties must be cooling off if Miller is prepping a “Fury Road” follow-up. The director has said for years he has two “Fury Road” sequels in mind, plus a separate film centered around Charlize Theron’s Furiosa.
In his interview with Deadline, Miller also revealed the backstory to one of “Fury Road’s” most iconic characters: the Doof Warrior, the madman guitar player seen shredding his fire-spouting instrument atop a moving vehicle. The Doof Warrior was played by Sean Hape, an Australian actor/musician who performs under the name iOTA.
“He was blind from birth,” Miller said of the Doof Warrior. “When things started going a bit crazy, he and his mother were left in a mining town. The only way they could survive was to go into a place where there was a competitive advantage to being blind. And that was to go deep down into a mine shaft where they were able to survive. He took what was most precious to him, a musical instrument, probably a guitar.
“As they were careening through the wasteland, someone heard this music echoing out of that mine shaft, went down there, and luckily they saw him as an asset,” Miller continued. “I think they killed his mother because she wasn’t of any use. They took him and he eventually ended up as the equivalent of the drummer, the fife player or the bagpiper, in Immortan Joe’s army.”
Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” has popped up on many year-end lists of the best films of the decade. While the director is confident a “Fury Road” sequel is in his future, “Three Thousand Years of Longing” will arrive first.
I have another update to share - this time, Fandom's latest staff blog regarding the Featured Video area.
They are going to be making some experiments in order to find out what is best for that area, one of which is The Loop, a mini-show produced by Fandom that talks about content based on the vertical that the topic is about (for this wiki, it would be related with TV and movies). For more information, you may visit the actual blog post about it.
(If you are a newcomer to Fandom wikis and don't know exactly what I'm talking about - Featured Video is a video that appears above the content area of articles. Earlier this year, some changes happened so that logged-in users don't see these videos by default, but unidentified users can still see them when visiting wikis.)
If you have any questions about this at all... feel free to ask them!
Hello Mad Max Wiki users!
I bring you more news from Fandom that are relevant to all wikis. I have been informing wikis about Fandom's newest blog about the Global Taxonomy project. To put it simply: the "related pages" between different wikis should start becoming more connected based on the relationship between their content.
So for example, for Mad Max, if there are articles in common with another wiki, then these would be better connected in terms of sections of recommended pages to visit. This should be exciting - we will be able to start seeing some of this early next year.
See you around!
I'm looking for a car from MadMax in Europe. Anyone know any place where I can rent this car for a few days?

Hello Fellow People of the Wastelands
When i watched the first and the second MAD MAX movie in 1985, i felt deeply connected to the clothing styles and general mood the film created. I knew that my first car needs to be Flat Black and somehow similar to the Black on Black Interceptor aka Pursuit Special.
The country where i am living is not famous for it's freedom regarding car modifications and i had to go with a base available. I had the choice between a Ford Capri and a Datsun 280ZX and went with the Datsun (was way cheaper). A friend of mine sprayed the thing flat black, and i did some decal work in Orange myself.
Sure, it had nothing to do with being a replica, but more a tribute to the Interceptor... and believe me, it stirred enough attention compared to all the shiny and expensive cars in my neighborhood. That much, that the police took away the car's license and declared it as not roadworthy just because of its looks and not because of any technical issues!
Today, over 30 years later we see Porsche Cayennes and Expensive BWW's wrapped in Flat Black foil. I for myself thought i would pay some tribute to MAD MAX by creating T-Shirts print designs and make them available for everyone out there. I always try not just to copy and paste images and things from the movie. This would be illegal and am aware that there are already enough of these available.
So, if you are a MAD MAX fan (guess you are if you are reading this) like i am, please feel free to visit my MAD MAX Tribute shop with T-Shirts, Hoodies and more. I am also always open for suggestions and happy to help.
Have a great time everyone and keep the spirit of MAX alive!
It mentions the airbrush art was completed on one side and the other wasn't shown because of that. When Max's wife is Running from the toe cutter after kicking his sprockets she's in the car doing doughnuts trying to escape you can see the other side of the car where there's no art.

I was watching the movie again and saw a vehicle that looks a little like a sandblasted land rover 'perentie' or a Lamborghini lm001/cheetah.
any help on the subject is much obliged.
it is in the middle right in front of the mack hauler
I was watching through MMF and found this vehicle but could not figure out what it was
Well it probably make things complicated, but hear me out. Fury road sequel could be about mad max ( played by Gibson) raising a child which child is tom hardys character and after Gibsons death Tom Hardys character would follwo his fathers footsteps. Also it could explain the flash backs that Tom Hardys mad max has on fury road. But this plot in my opinion would made me think less of Tom Hardys character as mad max. Maybe this plt would be cool onn a comic or TV series.
I was wondering why the Bigfoot, Rictus Erectus' personal vehicle, doesn't have a page?

I've suddenly got the urge to make Mad Max Fanfics, but I'm trying to understand Fury Road's universe a bit better.
In short: any idea of what the concept is behind naming characters? If anything I've from the wives, they seem to name themselves after traits, skills or features. Is that how the universe works with naming?
I could swear these were a thing but I simply cannot find any information anywhere they even expanded the lore a bit of the orginial franchise. Does anyone have any information on them?
Hello! I'm new to Mad Max and wanted to know how these creepy dudes on stalks in Fury Road are named. On my DVD, they appear at 1:11:47.
Would you tell me the name or even link the page, please? Thanks!
