2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road was one of the biggest surprises of the year. The film featured the return of George Miller, made 378.9 million at the box office, and was nominated for countless awards for special effects, costume design and more. After such critical acclaim and positive reception from fans, a sequel seemed incredibly likely. Reports circulated that Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron would be returning.
Tom Hardy was asked by The Wrap if he was aware of progress on a sequel to Fury Road.
“Yeah I believe so! 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.”
Theron spoke with Collider, discussing her character Imperator Furiosa and about her passion for returning to the role.
“I would love to bring her back to life, are you kidding?… To have people react to something like that where you went and worked your balls off (laughs), it’s really, really nice, it kind of just puts everything into perspective. I can see how people are responding to her and I look at my little girl and I’m like, ‘Yeah I’d love to play this woman again, definitely.’”
Director George Miller, explained earlier this year that he was misquoted previously when asked about his involvement with the franchise going forward.
“That was a completely garbled interview. 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,” he 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.”
No sequel has officially been confirmed by Warner Bros.
