Despite George Miller's legal dispute with Warner Bros, The director confrimed that a Mad Max sequel and Furiosa spinoff as still "going to happen."
"There are two stories, both involving Mad Max, and also a Furiosa story," Miller stated when asked about the sequels in and interview by IndieWire. " We're still solving, we've got to play out the Warners thing, it seems to be pretty clear that it's going to happen."
Miller's production cumpany sued Warner Bros. in 2017 after the distributor refused to pay out a multimillion dolllar bonus.The bonus was to be paid in the event that Fury Road's final cost came under $157 million. While it ultimately exceeded that budget, Miller's production company claimed that was only due to the "substantial changes and delays" created by Warner.
According to Miller, "the chaos has stabilized" nearly two years later, "and it's become extremely positive as the dust seems to have settled after(the merger with AT&T)."
Miller's comments indicate there are two Fury Road sequels planned including a Furiosa spinoff, The director stated that the title of the first sequel will be Mad Max: The Wasteland.
