George Miller is a fascinating man.
Decades before directing one of the best movies of 2015 and earning an Oscar nomination for his efforts, he was a doctor working in Sydney, Australia who practically stumbled into filmmaking with the original Mad Max. Between now and then, he’s written, produced and directed mainstream successes and cult favorites alike, experimenting in various mediums and never settling on a single genre. And in a new interview, he opens up about his life and career in a big way, talking about Mad Max: Fury Road and Babe and his canceled Justice League movie and his relationship with Stanley Kubrick and so much more.

Will George Miller make another Mad Max sequel? What will it be called? When will it happen? This Mad Max story has nothing to do with all of that hoopla.

Let’s just cut to the chase: the internet can be a big, stupid echo chamber where the wrong information travels like like flames through a dry forest. Or, in this case, like flames across a Warboy convoy soaked in precious guzzoline. Director George Miller has been talking about a making a fifth film in his iconic post-apocalyptic action franchise since before Mad Max: Fury Road came out. And when everyone realized that Fury Road was nothing short of a masterpiece, he started chatting about potential sequels in every single interview.
So there was something fishy about him suddenly saying that he was done making Mad Max movies. And now we know the reason for that particular odor: he was misquoted.

Mad Max: Fury Road was not an easy movie to make. Very few movies are, but last year’s sequel had an especially bumpy ride to the big screen. Developed for over a decade and originally shot in 2012, director George Miller spent a lot of his time working on Fury Road, so it’s understandable he wouldn’t want to make another Mad Max film. Read Miller’s comments on the Mad Max sequel after the jump.

After the success of Mad Max: Fury Road (/Film’s overall favorite movie of the year), director George Miller could’ve decided to take a nice long break and no one would have blamed him. Seriously. After a few years of managing car crashes in the desert, a lengthy vacation to a relaxing place sounds about right.
But nope! Instead, he’s been doing non-stop interviews, addressing questions about a potential Mad Max 5 or a Furiosa spin-off, and preparing to launch himself immediately into another project. And that brings us to today’s big George Miller update: yes, he would love to make a Mad Max sequel, but he’s going to make something smaller first. Something inspired by a movie shot on an iPhone.

The top 10 list I always look forward to the most towards the end of any year is the one from writer-director Quentin Tarantino. His taste is not only varied, but sometimes a little outside of the box. The director once included Woody Allen‘s Anything Else on a list featuring his favorite movies of the past 20 years or so — which, ever since he did that, has made me want to reevaluate Anything Else. Unlike the past few years, Tarantino has yet to reveal his top picks of the year, but he has declared his love for director George Miller‘s Mad Max: Fury Road.
Read about Quentin Tarantino’s favorite movie of 2015 after the jump.

Mad Max: Fury Road was all orange sand and teal skies, with the occasional burst of bright shiny chrome, and it looked damn great. According to director George Miller, though, the ideal color scheme for the movie would’ve been no color scheme at all. “The best version of this movie is black and white,” he told us back in May, “but people reserve that for art movies now.”
Miller may yet get his wish for a colorless Fury Road, though. According to a new report, not only does an official black-and-white version of Mad Max: Fury Road, it might actually roll into theaters next year. More about the possible Mad Max: Fury Road black and white release after the jump. Read More »

2017’s Justice League Part One will mark the first time the Justice League has officially assembled in a live-action feature film, but there were plenty of attempts to bring the superhero team to the big screen before that. One of the most famous is George Miller‘s Justice League Mortal, which had a cast in place before the 2007-2008 Writers Guild of America strike derailed it altogether.
Since then, it’s become one of the great what-ifs of superhero movie fandom, alongside the likes of Tim Burton’s Superman Lives. But while we’ll never actually get to see the film that could’ve been, we have a tiny taste of it today. Photographer Mark Rogers has shared a couple of photos of Megan Gale in costume as Wonder Woman in Miller’s canceled film. See the Justice League Mortal Wonder Woman images after the jump. Read More »
