22/11/2001: MAD MAX 4 IS FINISHED

George Miller has finished his screenplay for Mad Max 4 on the eve of this year’s AFI Awards presentation; at the awards party (Miller is Patron of the AFI) he celebrated both the awards and his completed script with a beer and a boutique portion of fish and chips.

In top spirits, Miller told Urban Cinefile he was pleased with this final draft and casting was "in process" but wouldn’t be drawn on details. "Unfortunately," he said, "we won’t be able to shoot in Australia, although I’d dearly love to. We need some real big stretches of desert where the cars don’t get bogged; those deserts in South Australia would do but it’s not practical for the cars. So we’ll have to shoot elsewhere."
