The fourth “Mad Max” film will now become a 3-D animated feature without any involvement from Mel Gibson reports MTV News.
Writer/director George Miller told the site “I see myself as someone who is very curious about storytelling and all its various media. I’ve always loved anime, in particular the Japanese sensibility. It’s something I’ve always wanted to do.”
The story would be partially lifted from the script which was set to shoot in 2003 until financing collapsed. With his experience on “Happy Feet”, the idea of an R-rated, stereoscopic anime flick for theatrical release seems like a quite interesting route to take.
A tie-in action-adventure video game would also be tied in to the production.
