George Miller Gives an Update on ‘Mad Max: The Wasteland’
Mad Max: Fury Road changed the game when it comes to action cinema, giving us a post-apocalyptic movie that doesn’t skimp on color, fight scenes that are easy for the eye to follow, and a heroine who is more than just a cliched Strong Female Character. Ahead of the one-night-only release of Fury Road’s “Black and Chrome Edition” hitting U.K. theaters, director George Miller gave some insight into how and why he decided to provide an alternate, black and white edition of his movie, and what’s going on with the next one.

Mad Max: Fury Road is one of the most visually stunning action movies ever made, partly because George Miller eschewed the grays-and-browns trend of post-apocalyptic movies. Fury Road drips with vibrant oranges, reds, and blues that provide a stunning technicolor backdrop for our heroes’ race through the desert. But according to Miller, the best version of the film is one he made without any color at all: the “Black & Chrome Edition” of the film has been teased ever since its release, and it’ll be coming to video stores with a special Blu-ray release after a theatrical debut at this year’s SpectreFest.

In interviews, Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller talked about wanting to show his movie in black-and-white. In a conversation with director Edgar Wright, he explained that “the default position for everyone is to de-saturate post-apocalyptic movies. There’s only two ways to go, make them black and white — the best version of this movie is black and white, but people reserve that for art movies now.” There were rumblings of a theatrical release of a black-and-white Fury Road, but that never came to pass. But the monochromatic print (heavy on the chrome, in this case) of the movie is coming to Blu-ray, and you’ll be able to get it before the end of the year.

Before you carelessly toss this news in the "obviously" pile, please remember all the reports of tension between Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy on the set of Mad Max: Fury Road — and all the interviews after the film hit theaters, where it seemed like Theron wasn't particularly eager to work on a sequel with George Miller. And while Hardy has signed on for at least two Mad Max sequels, Theron has not, which definitely makes her enthusiastic response to the prospect of playing Furiosa again pretty exciting.

Many years ago, Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller was deep into development on a Justice League movie. How deep? He had his entire cast — including Armie Hammer as Batman, Common as Green Lantern and Adam Brody as Flash — and was well into rehearsals in Australia. That project wound up getting canceled because of the writer’s strike and Justice League would lay dormant…until this April when Zack Snyder begins filming on his two-part Justice League movie. That film — starring Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa as Aquaman and Ezra Miller as The Flash — now has at least one major connection to the defunct Justice League film of 2008: Miller himself, who will return to produce the new version.

Like Tim Burton’s Superman movie, George Miller’s Justice League is one of the great “what ifs” of movies that almost happened. And like Burton’s film, there’s a documentary in the works that will explore Miller’s concept for the Justice League movie and just what happened to it. Until then, Miller himself has offered an explanation, but if you were looking for some juicy gossip you might be a little disappointed.

It turns out that in Hollywood, all you need to do to command the respect of your elite group of peers is direct a new project every five or six years. It doesn’t even matter if your filmography is marred with stretches of talking-animal-based missteps, so long as your name is George Miller, and the movies you sporadically make are as spectacularly good as the Mad Max films...

Earlier this week, George Miller was quoted as saying that he was done with the Mad Max franchise, which came as a shock to many, especially since Miller has done nothing but talk up Mad Max sequels since before Fury Road even hit theaters. But as several suspected, Page Six had their story wrong, which just goes to show that you should always take their reports with a GIANT boulder of salt.
