Mad Max Sequels May Never Happen

Published

on

Mad Max: Fury Road brought in over $500 million Warner Bros. reigniting the George Miller franchise. Now it seems that any plans for sequel are close to being scrapped.

Last November, George Miller and his production company Kennedy Miller Mitchell filed a suit against Warner Bros. alleging that the company reneged on paying him a $7 million bonus for bringing Fury Road in under a budget of $157 million. Warner Bros., meanwhile, claims the film did go over budget, and thus Miller is not entitled to a bonus after all.

Warner Bros. tried to get the lawsuit moved out of Australia, but in November the Aussie Supreme Court ruled that the case would stay Down Under. Now, per the Sydney Morning Herald, new court filings shed some light on exactly what’s going on, and how this makes Fury Road sequels unlikely to happen.

In a counter-filing, Warner Bros. says Fury Road “significantly exceeded the approved budget,” with the extra costs caused largely by Miller’s production company. WB also claims they merely suggested an alternative ending rather than insisting on it, and that Miller’s company agreed to fund some of the additional filming in 2013.

The live action Lion King movie will debut in 2019. The cast already seems legendary with Beyoncé, Donald Glover, Seth Rogen, John Oliver Billy Eichner, and James Earl Jones returning as Mufasa.

On Tuesday, Rogen posted a photo on Twitter with co-stars Glover and Eichner and director Jon Favreau. He captioned it with “Hakuna Matata.” In the upcoming live-action version of the classic Disney film, Glover voices Simba, so we know he just can’t wait to be king. Rogen is appropriately cast as class clown Pumbaa and Eichner is Timon.

Black Panther and Creed II star Michael B. Jordan will play the deadly assassin Columbus in The Silver Bear. The film is based on the book series of the same name by author Derek Haas.

The story is set to follow Jordan’s Colombus as he becomes the most respected hitman in the criminal underworld.

Speaking with Deadline about The Silver Bear, Lionsgate’s chairman Joe Drake said, “[The Silver Bear is] the kind of story that needs to be experienced on the big screen and Michael is the perfect movie star to inhabit the skin of this dynamic character and take us into the cinematic world of Columbus.”

Jordan will produce the film through Outlier Society and Nickel City Pictures’ Vishal Rungta, Mark Fasano, and Ankur Rungta. Haas, who wrote all four of the novels in the series the film is based on, will executive produce the film alongside Michael Garnett and Tobias Weymar.
