Tom Hardy appeared at the TCA 2017 winter press tour this week that he’s as anxious as all of us to see what filmmaker George Miller will come up with for the future of the “Mad Max” franchise.
Speaking with Collider, Hardy revealed that he’s signed on to do at least two more ‘Max’ films, and he doesn’t know exactly when things will get underway”
“Yeah, as far as I’ve signed to do three of them. It’s a question of when. I’m not sure it’s called The Wasteland or not ’cause you never know. These titles change all the time. But, there’s definitely another Mad Max project pending.”
Hardy also spoke about Miller’s extensive plans already in place for the franchise and what could be explored in future films:
“I’m anxiously waiting to find out. There’s mythology to do with Mad Max that spans copious amounts of tales. What’s wonderful about George [Miller] is that he’s created sagas for Max and sagas for Furiosa, so it’s what he chooses to focus in on.
I’m really just waiting for the call like, ‘All right, let’s get the leathers on and get back out there and do some more.’ It’s there. I’m just waiting for it and looking forward to it.
I love working with George [Miller] and the fact that his mythology is so deep. It’s a joy to work with an artist and somebody who has the ability to be a movie maker, as well. It’s the full package, isn’t it?”
At last report Miller is planning to tackle a smaller film first before returning to the ‘Max’ well.
