George Miller has been teasing his plans for the Mad Max franchise, hinting at a prequel titled Mad Max: The Wasteland, which would follow Tom Hardy’s Max Rockatansky across The Wasteland and onto the Fury Road. Miller promises that the film will be packed with action, echoing the intensity that made Mad Max: Fury Road so nice. However, unlike Fury Road, The Wasteland would span a much longer period, exploring the year before Max encounters Imperator Furiosa.

In an interview with the Happy Sad Confused podcast, Miller discussed the differences between The Wasteland and Fury Road, emphasizing that the former would be a saga unfolding over the course of a year. He is still in the process of fleshing out the story and is waiting to gauge the reception of Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga before proceeding with The Wasteland.

The project is in its early stages, with the story initially written as a novella. Miller prefers not to reveal too much about the film until its development progresses further, having learned from past experiences.

However, the fate of Mad Max: The Wasteland hinges on the reception of Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga. Despite receiving positive reviews from critics, the prequel has struggled at the box office, raising concerns about the state of cinema post-pandemic. Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga explores the origins of Imperator Furiosa and features an ensemble cast led by Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth.

As the franchise’s first spinoff, Furiosa delves into Furiosa’s journey from the Green Place of Many Mothers to the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. The film navigates Furiosa’s trials and challenges as she fights for survival and seeks a way back home.

Miller’s ambitious plans for The Wasteland promise to expand the Mad Max universe further, offering fans another thrilling installment in the post-apocalyptic saga. However, its realization depends on the success of Furiosa and the audience’s appetite for more Mad Max adventures.
