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.

Published

Deadpool 2 will be getting an extended cut when it hit store shelves.

During a new interview for the sequel, the filmmaker also confirmed there will be about 20 minutes of deleted scenes for fans to pore over when this superhero sequel debuts on Blu-ray, DVD and digital formats.

“This is just ballpark, but I’d say there’s an additional 20 minutes of stuff. I am actually putting it together now. We’re taking sort of it slow. There’s a lot of alts we want to play with. I want to get Ryan in there so we’re making sure we’re all on the same page of like the comedy we want to do and the narrative. There are some great scenes in there that have been just lifted and it would be fun to be back in.”

The director also clarified that his first cut for the studio, his director’s cut, was between two hours and 12 minutes and two hours and 15 minutes

Zombieland 2 Plot Details Leaked Online

Published

on

Zombieland 2 will finally start filming in October. Details of the sequel have already been leaked online.

According to sources, Sony’s follow up to the 2009 film will focus on the aftermath of the first zombie outbreak.

Zombieland Too opens with a question. What would happen if we ran out of zombies? An interesting concept, one that hasn’t been explored in any film of the genre thus far. The way the film approaches answering the question is both hilarious and depressing. The change from ‘zombies’ to ‘no zombies’ can be considered as big as the change from ‘no zombies’ to ‘zombies.’ It’s such a dramatic transformation to one’s routine, what they consider normal, that it fundamentally alters their mentality. Boredom and apathy seep into each person’s psyche, slowly growing discontent with one another until they reach an inevitable boiling point.”

Splash Report also posted news on the potential plot for the sequel.

“The main plot of Zombieland Too follows the gang as they attempt to find Little Rock after she ran away with an individual (unnamed due to spoilers). Columbus, Tallahassee, and Wichita embark on a journey that takes them all the way across the country to hopefully save LR from certain death. You know how earlier I mentioned zombies were now extinct in Zombieland? I lied. You see, while the regular, lumbering creatures from the first film have no interest in humans anymore, rendering them essentially extinct, they have been replaced by Super Zombies, giant, muscular, incredibly tough beings that are only able to be killed through a headshot. A horde of these super-zombies has been migrating from city to city, destroying everything in its wake. And it’s up to the gang to finally put an end to this bloodshed, or face extinction themselves.”
