...THREE THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING! It's said to be an epic unlike anything he has done before. He's writing, producing and directing! I can't wait, Miller's my all time favorite filmmaker.

BTW, the lawsuit is still going on. I hope it is resolved so Miller can go back to MAD MAX, but in the meantime I'm really looking forward to THREE THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING!

Ha, ha...no, I see you, henry!

This board can be terribly 'ignoring' (is that a word?) sometimes. I often get the feeling people are not interested in reading threads or the actual conversations, perhaps only the headline at most.

But yes -- very much looking forward to Miller's next film. He always takes his time in picking and directing projects, but they almost always turn out well. Did you know I met Miller in Cannes a few years ago, when he was heading the Cannes main competition jury?

You're not on my ignore list henry, and never will be. I'm just not very knowledgeable about George Miller beyond the Mad Max films and Babe.... frown

Hi Thor! I'm glad you're interested in Miller too my friend! How cool that you met him, I would love to meet him and pick his brain for a few days!smileBTW, the film already has a cast, Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba. It's billed as a romantic fantasy.

Hi buddy! I'm glad I'm not on your ignore list, I can be a bit much at times. You should check out THE WITCHES OF EASTWICK and his TWILIGHT ZONE: THE MOVIE segment NIGHTMARE AT 20,000 FEET. He also did the epilogue with Aykroyd and Lithgow. LORENZO'S OIL is a great film too, but hard to watch.

I love that film and ALWAYS forget that he directed it. It's a bit like them not being able to remember Darryl van Horne's name until Felicia takes the dive down the stairs.

You know what? Now that you mention them, I actually have seen two of those, and I liked them both. The Witches of Eastwick was fun and, of course, had a great score by John Williams! The Twilight Zone: The Movie segments were cool too (and the best segments in the film, IMHO). smile

Didn't see Lorenzo's Oil. Maybe I'll check it out...

He did Happy Feet?!?!?! Never saw it.

He also produced and wrote the screenplay for BABE, and directed the sequel PIG IN THE CITY. And both HAPPY FEET films, winning the Oscar for the first. Oh, he produced DEAD CALM.

You guys should the book about Miller titled MILLER AND MAX, it's a great read. Did you guys know he was an E.R. surgeon before he got into movies?

Miller also directed Tina Turner's WE DON"T NEED ANOTHER HERO video.

BABE.

The man who did Mad Max did Babe...I'm shook.

I honestly had no idea and I love both of those film series for, like, completely opposite reasons. Miller might be the Southern Hemisphere's answer to Spielberg.

MAD MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE

I've always been a huge George Miller fan. Ever since EASTWICK – despite meddling from producers Guber & Peters, who mandated the current ending – he's been on my radar as not only brilliant and a modern master of theatricality and movement, but also versatile.

He's the kind of artist I don't think can fill his filmography with enough credits.

But don't confuse him with the man who made The Man From Snowy River – that's, incredibly enough, another Australian named George Miller.

In retrospect I'm not surprised Miller did Babe in the City. I've heard it's very dark, especially for a "kids" movie.

I don't know, I loved it and so did Siskel & Ebert. It was Siskel's number one film of 1998.
