Mad Max: Fury Road is an action masterpiece. It's exciting and beautiful and thankfully not the last according to Director George Miller. On The Q&A with Jeff Goldsmith podcast he talked about potential sequels to the film, here's what he said: We’ve got one screenplay [for the fifth film] and a novella [for the sixth]. It happened because with the delays [on 'Fury Road'], and writing all the backstories, they just expanded. [The fifth one] is called ‘The Wasteland.’ ‘Mad Max: The Wasteland.’

Of course we already knew Miller was likely to make more sequels, but it's nice to know that it has a title already. Now all we need to hope is that Fury Road makes enough money to satisfy the studio. An opening weekend box office haul of $45 million domestic (and $109 million worldwide) for an R-rated movie is pretty impressive, especially to a franchise that hasn't had a release in 30 years, but lets not forget that Fury Road cost a whopping $150 million. So don't take this as a confirmation of a sequel happening, we just know that if the studio wants it, it will happen.
