That looks a lot like Peter Weir that Miller is talking with in the pic. I could likely be wrong but it's cool to think the directors of Mad Max and The Cars that ate Paris are shooting the breeze!

I'm not quite sure if it's Peter Weir, my first thought was Nick Lathouris...

Look at Russell Crowe, he looks very intimidating in this photo!

EDIT:
As I suspected. Got info from multiple people higher up, nothing's gearing up for Mad Max 5, nobody's been contacted about anything. I only got some rumors that aren't worth mentioning. One interesting bit of info is that with the amount of work, if folks were contacted today, it would take about 5 years to get the movie into the theaters. And that the movie would be filmed in Australia this time around because WB want full control over it. They can't be sending their folks to Namibia whenever something happens and trust me some stuff did happen in Namibia that pissed WB off, financially and the way actors carried themselves let's put it that way.


It was such a weird and out of left field post given the social page there hasn't made a post in a year or so. That's sad to hear though. Part of me was hoping it was a subtle hint at an upcoming announcement at say, Comic Com next week, given that was the venue and event everyone publicly got their first look at Fury Road footage.

In other news, and it's hard to link given I'm on mobile right now, but Charlize is talking Furiosa and the prequel again with Variety I believe if someone wants to link it. She basically says she's down and ready to do it she's just waiting for the call from George and WB, how during Fury Road there were 3 additional scripts done for followups including Furiosa and a Max prequel and then talks about the original ideas for Furiosa etc

After all Hardy expressed interest, Theron did, it's time for us to be on the news!

As someone suggested, Edgar Wright for the Furiosa stand-alone prequel and George Miller for MMFR 2 & 3. C'mon WB! Make it happen!

Theron is wrong about the number of scripts btw.

Aside from Fury Road there are only 2 (she said there were 3). Furiosa and The Wasteland. Both of them are prequels. The Wasteland takes place about a year before Fury Road. I asked Mark Sexton about The Wasteland and he said he had done some initial concept art for it a long time ago, and said that this story isn't revolving around Glory and Hope. Thank god it doesn't, if it were a story about this it'd be the 3rd time we see it (comic books and the video game covered it already).
Apparently Scaborus Scrotus might make an appearance though. I don't know, they're not telling me too much, nor am I asking too many in depth questions out of fear I'll get cut off for being too nosey. Either way, once things start rolling I'll let you guys know for sure.

Thanks for letting us know! im more eager to see Max than Furiosa to be honest, I'm happy for a prequel because we will have the interceptor back!!!!!!!!!


How will Furiosa be in the prequels, i guess they don't have to meet each other they can be 2 different stories going on in the same movie but some how connect.

Maybe she meant there were 3 scripts, one being Fury Road. You know how they love to twist what they say.

I'm glad we aren't getting a third go at Glory & Hope even if there is potential to really to it justice, its already a mess as it is with there being two versions.

Scaborus Scrotus could be interesting. I always figured he'd show up in the Furiosa prequel/sequel.
