Director George Miller's plans for a fourth Mad Max film hit a brick wall when the war came along: "The American dollar crashed and it was almost impossible to ship vehicles to our location. We had a deadline, and we couldn't meet it."

The filmmaker tells Australia's Empire Magazine that even though the film's production offices (at Sydney's Fox Studios) have been vacated, and Mel Gibson is no longer attached, he still hopes to make the fourth film.

"The last thing I wanted to do is another Mad Max, but this came along, and I'm completely carried away with it," Miller told Empire Magazine. Miller still hopes to return to the project after his next film, Happy Feet, is finished. But does the world need another Mad Max film?
