George Miller Shopping Epic Love Story 'Three Thousand Years of Longing'
Mad Max: Fury Road filmmaker George Miller appears to finally be ready to get back behind the camera.
Miller is shopping Three Thousand Years of Longing, aka Djinn, an epic love story that will be introduced to buyers at the American Film Market next week.
Miller wrote the script and will direct the feature project, which involves a genie. FilmNation is handling international sales, while CAA is handling North America.
Miller is the Australian writer-director behind the Mad Max action movies that helped launch Mel Gibson into stardom. He also penned the screenplay for Babe and wrote and directed Babe: Pig in the City, in addition to helming the Happy Feet pics.
The 73-year-old filmmaker hit a career high with 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road, which won six Academy Awards and four BAFTA Awards and earned a Golden Globe best director nomination.
Sources say that while his new story is epic in feel, the project is light-years in the opposite direction from the tone of Fury Road.
