Mad Max is one of the most popular action movie franchises among pop culture fans. Released in 1979, George Miller’s Mad Max managed to entertain fans with its depiction of post-apocalyptic life in Australia. Following the success of its first film, the franchise has since continued to expand with several sequels, including Mad Max 2 (1981), Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985), and most recently Mad Max: Fury Road (2015).
As the best movie in the franchise, Fury Road has managed to reach more and more new fans. And this makes the film managed to reach a turnover of 375 million dollars, or about 5.5 billion rupees. Shortly after the release of his fourth film, director George Miller announced that he had a script for his fifth film. However, so far the movie, titled Mad Max: The Wasteland, has never materialized for some reason.

And now, Variety has just reported an update on Mad Max: The Wasteland. Unfortunately, the news about this fifth Mad Max movie may not be something fans have been hoping for. Because it seems like the Mad Max: The Wasteland project itself is still hampered by an imperfect script.
Although the film is still in development, Miller admits that he and his team still need time to finalize the script for Mad Max: The Wasteland . We have a story, but it’s still not perfect. We’ll try to get back to the problem,” Miller told Variety. So far there is no other information regarding the release date and the lineup of actors who will be involved in the film.
Based on this latest news, it looks like fans will have to be more patient. Instead, currently Warner Bros. as the company that oversees the franchise is working on a prequel titled Furiosa. The plan is for actors like Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Burke to liven up the film. If there are no obstacles, the Mad Max: Furiosa movie itself is scheduled for release on May 24, 2024. Hopefully, geeks out the fate of Mad Max 5 .
