Tom Hardy is on board for more Mad Max films.
After impressing in Mad Max: Fury Road, which proved to be extremely popular, the actor has said he’s just “waiting for the call” about follow-ups.
When asked about starring in sequels, Hardy told The Wrap:
“Yeah I believe [that we’re doing sequels]! I don’t know when that starts, but I believe that’s in the books. There’s a couple of those floating around. I’m waiting for the call to come. It was so good, man.”
It was originally reported that George Miller didn’t want to make any more films in the franchise, however the director addressed the reports as “not true”, saying he has “two more stories” to tell :
“That was a completely garbled interview. I was in New York and it was so noisy and the journalist was asking me questions on a red carpet at the National Board of Review.
She completely got the wrong fragments of information that… were just not true. I said no, [another Mad Max movie] will not be next, and she took that to mean I never wanted to make another Mad Max. It won’t necessarily be next, but I have two more stories.” he told The Wrap.
Mad Max: Fury Road won six Academy Awards in 2016. A sequel is yet to be officially confirmed by Warner Bros.
