Mad Max Sequels May Never Happen

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.
