‘Mad Max Fury Road’ sequel: Tom Hardy waiting for call
The apocalyptic reboot of the famous George Miller Mad Max franchise was a smashing success and star Tom Hardy confirms that sequels are coming and he’s standing by, ready to go.
“Yeah I believe so!” the actor told TheWrap when asked about whether they would be happening. “I don’t know when that starts, but I believe that’s in the books. There’s a couple of those floating around. I’m waiting for the call to come.”
“It was so good, man,” Hardy said.
The Wrap landed the interview with the Dark Knight Rises and Inception star, reporting how Hardy sounds set to reprise his titular role from Mad Max: Fury Road. The outlet quotes Miller’s remarks regarding a return to the franchise.
I was in New York and it was so noisy and the journalist was asking me questions on a red carpet at the National Board of Review,” Miller said. “She completely got the wrong fragments of information that were just not true. I said no, [another Mad Max movie] will not be next, and she took that to mean I never wanted to make another Mad Max. It won’t necessarily be next, but I have two more stories.”
Miller did also hint at a prequel, saying that Imperator Furiosa, would be “pretty interesting” to explore in a future movie. More HERE
Fury Road won six Oscars including Best Achievement in Film Editing and Costume Design. It was also nominated for Best Picture and Best Director. The film grossed $378 million worldwide on a reported production budget of $150 million.
The production was a nightmare with delay after delay, fights between Hardy and Charlize Theron and a flurry of rumors pointing to a disaster.
Warner Bros has never confirmed any plans.
