Reported by Outsiders - 10:37 PM 2010.07.06
Ok, maybe it's not Peter Jackson himself but the next George Miller Mad Max: Fury Road movie will be using Peter Jackson's special effects company WETA
We’re thrilled to announce our involvement with Mad Max: Fury Road, a long-awaited continuation of the Mad Max suite, the last installment of which, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome, premiered 25 years ago. As with previous Mad Max movies, George Miller is the director and Weta is very excited to be working with George on conceptual design, Specialty Make-Up FX, Costume and Dummies. The movie is currently scheduled for a 2012 release.
Now The Austrailian
reports the recently announced second Mad Max film Furiosa, which we reported
about will delay the films going into production. They'll be shooting these two film back to back and the movies won't be shooting until February of next year.
Cast, crew, agents and film service companies are awaiting official confirmation this week…The reason for the postponement is unknown, although recent internet reports indicate that director George Miller is overseeing the shooting of not one but two Mad Max films from the same production. It is believed this development has caused some screenwriting and casting problems…The office of the film’s production company, Kennedy Miller Mitchell, would not confirm or deny the postponement from an expected November start date to next year.
