George Miller began his directing career with “Mad Max” (1979). A first feature film which disappointed the filmmaker as the final result differed from what he had imagined at the start.
Mad Max: a complicated first experience
Thirty years after the third film madmax, george miller gave a boost to its saga initiated in 1979, with Mad Max: Fury Road (2015). But there. Seven years have passed since the release of this memorable film carried by Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. A long wait that will soon end. The filmmaker finally realized his next feature film, Three thousand years waiting for you. A drama that we can discover previewed at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival.
It was precisely on the occasion of his presence on the Croisette that Deadline (via Screening) spoke with the filmmaker. The American media took the opportunity to discuss with the director the first madmax. And George Miller admits that the final result was in no way what he had imagined, and that the problems on the set had been numerous despite all his preparation.
The process was very difficult and in the end the film was nothing like I wanted it to be. I had a movie in my head, I thought we were very well prepared and thought of everything. But it all went in totally different directions.
He even admits to having for a time thought that he “did not have the makings of a filmmaker“. Fortunately, the filmmaker continued to work behind the camera and finally accepted this part of the unexpected in the filming.
On films with more means, I understood that this was how it happened. I am someone who likes things to be calm and go well. But at the same time, I am aware that it never happens that way.
