There's been some strange, inaccurate and downright misleading posting going on around the internet in the wake of the rumours that George Miller has restarted production on MAD MAX 4: FURY ROAD. So here's the facts so far, as verified by a certain regular source for BAD LIBRARIANSHIP, I'm sure you can guess who.
The new Mad Max movie script titled FURY ROAD is based on a screenplay written by George Miller and Brendan McCarthy. And not as reported elsewhere, just by Brendan, who is a well-known British comic book artist and writer and a great fan of the Mad Max films. They spent about two years in Sydney writing and designing the feature. Brendan was initially hired by George to kick-start the fourth installment of the Mad Max series as story artist and designer. This was so fruitful that Brendan went on to co-write the movie with George Miller and also to create a new cgi animated feature to follow HAPPY FEET.
How much the completed MAD MAX 4 movie will resemble this fully illustrated script remains to be seen. But there are plans to publish the screenplay, complete with boards and designs, should FURY ROAD ever be made and released.
