Though Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller is still interested in being involved with the series as Warner Bros. plots future spinoffs and sequels, the filmmaker also has no problem handing directing duties over to someone else if need be.
In a recent interview with Studio360, he said the following:
“People are directing younger and younger, they’re getting a real sense of cinema very, very early, and there’s some great directors out there,” Miller says. “You see films every day and you know it’s a good film because you get excited by the possibility of cinema. You walk out of the movies thinking, ‘Oh, anything’s possible!'”
The director was then asked if he’d be alright with leaving Mad Max in another person’s hands, to which he replied:
“Yeah, of course.”
While we’d all like to see Miller return to the Wasteland for another outing, it’s understandable that he may not be able to. After all, he’s already 70-years-old, and it took him nearly 15 years to get Fury Road made.
Of course, a sequel would probably move along much quicker, but still, it would be a big undertaking for him and given that he wants to focus on more independent films for the immediate future, who knows when he’d even get around to doing another Mad Max.
Tell us, do you have any other directors in mind for the Mad Max sequel should Miller be unable to helm it? Sound off below and let us know.
