Mad Max: Fury Road wasn’t just a triumphant return to post-apocalyptic action for director George Miller, who hadn’t concocted an installment in his sci-fi franchise since 1985’s Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome; it was one of 2015’s best films. Thus there’s considerable demand for more adventures featuring Tom Hardy’s grunting road warrior and Charlize Theron’s fierce Furiosa — and according to Miller, he’s still planning on delivering two more chapters in the revitalized series.

George Miller was a working ER doctor when he set off on making his first movie, the independently financed Mad Max. The actioner became of the most profitable films of all time, launched Mel Gibson’s career, and lead to three sequels, including last year’s box-office hit Mad Max: Fury Road, which earned Miller his first Best Director Oscar nomination. In between his work on the original Mad Max trilogy (which also included 1981’s Road Warrior and 1983’s Beyond Thunderdome) and Fury Road, Miller helmed a couple adult dramas (1987’s Witches of Eastwick and 1992’s Lorenzo’s Oil) and a few projects that couldn’t be further from the bloodbaths of apocalyptic Max-land: the family flicks Babe: Pig in the City (1998), Happy Feet (2006), and Happy Feet 2 (2011).

Mad Max: Fury Road garnered 10 Oscar nominations this year, including one for best picture, but the stunt coordinators who made the movie’s action sequences possible aren’t feeling the love.

Protesters plan to deliver an online petition, signed by over 45,000 people, to Academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs.
George Miller not only delivered a new Mad Max movie over 30 years after the series’ last installment. It took Miller a grand total of 15 years to make Fury Road. The writer-director’s original intention was to film it with Mel Gibson, who starred in 1979’s Mad Max, 1981’s The Road Warrior, and 1983’s Beyond Thunderdome.
