George Miller struck a pretty tremendous blow against the idea of ageism with his vibrant, dynamic work on "Mad Max: Fury Road," and since that film came out, his name's been bouncing around, with several different possible projects rumored as his next priority.
He's said several times now that the rumor about him directing "Man Of Steel 2" is simply untrue, but he has yet to offer up the title of what he's doing instead. Talking to Top Gear, he gave a pretty clear picture of what's on his mind right now. "I want to do a small film without special effects… just do it quickly," he said, and it's easy to imagine why he'd want that. "Fury Road" was a monumental shoot, and when you look at the final film, it's pretty clear why it took so long. That kind of remarkable, precision-based mayhem is demanding, and Miller's the kind of guy who has to do it right, or not at all. "We shot 'Fury Road' for eight months… that's a lot. Every day in the heat and the dust, doing these stunts, it's very wearing."
