Mad Max director George Miller has announced a video game based on the iconic films. It's to be made by Creative Alliance and directed by God of War II director Cory Barlog (whose last name is almost cool). Newsweek has posted an interview with Miller. Here are some highlights:

On why the movie "Mad Max: Fury Road" was never filmed:

We were all ready to go, within eleven weeks of shooting the next "Mad Max" movie, "Fury Road." This was way back when the war in Iraq started, and that really threw this out for a whole host of reasons, not the least of which was that the American dollar crashed against the Australian dollar. And apart from that, just insurances, getting vehicles and stuff there on container ships--all that slowed down around the world. So we had to move on to "Happy Feet," because that was going to take a long time.

On whether Mel Gibson will star in the movie and the videogame:

Oh, it wouldn't be with Mel....I didn't realize it was so long ago but, he was 20, well, he was 21 when he first played Mad Max. He's in his 50's now--it's too old. Yeah, I think for "The Road Warrior" he was 22 or 23 or something, so he was just a baby back then.

There's not much else in the interview about the actual game. The interview deals mostly with how Miller is going to start getting heavily involved in making video games. Interesting. Here's the intro to the article, and here is part 1 and part 2.

Newsweek also has a 2 part interview with Cory Barlog along similar lines. Check out part 1 here, and part 2 here.
