George Miller, who hasn't read the papers today, announces he's making two Mad Max films back to back

In the week’s most expertly timed announcement, director George Miller has let Twitch know that he’s shooting not one but two Mad Max films back to back with an eye on “rapid release.” The reboot of the post-apocalyptic franchise that laid the foundation for Mel Gibson’s eventual rise to the top of the fellatio-demanding food chain will star Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, and pick up shortly after the events of 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. Miller says the next film and its sequel will be titled Mad Max: Fury Road and Mad Max: Furiosa, respectively, which suggests the second part will find Max traversing the wasteland in a sporty Italian hatchback.
