Mad Max creator George Miller premieres biggest film to shoot in Australia


Greek Australian film director, George Miller attended the Sydney premiere of his film, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga on Tuesday, which is now regarded as the biggest film to be shot in Australia.

According to the The Sydney Morning Herald, Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga is the fifth installment in the Australian made Mad Max film franchise, serving as both a spin-off and prequel to Mad Max: Fury Road (2015), with a reputed budget of more than $400 million, on the eve of the local premiere.

Miller was joined by and Furiosa stars, US-born Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth, who both have leading roles in the film.

“In order to sell Fury Road, we had to write Furiosa’s story and Max’s story beforehand so that everyone knew what the story was like,” he said. “The thought was that if Fury Road worked, we might go into Furiosa“, Miller said.

“It took a lot longer than I thought, as these things do, but I have to say it was great to be working with most of the same people that we worked with before.”

Chris Hemsworth seconded Miller’s sentiments, expressing his joy on working with Miller and the Mad Max team.

“There are people who worked on the first film who are still involved in George’s team,” Hemsworth said. “It was honestly the best experience I’ve ever had on set.”

The post-apocalyptic action film has a reputed budget of more than $400 million, on the eve of the local premiere.
