Report:  Mad Max  Director Acquires Brendan McNamara's Next Game

Report: Mad Max Director Acquires Brendan McNamara's Next Game

November 28, 2011 | By Mike Rose




George Miller, the film director behind the Mad Max movies, has confirmed that a video game based on the latest in the series, Fury Road is due to be developed, while also revealing that he has acquired the next game from former Team Bondi founder Brendan McNamara.

The veteran film producer revealed the news in an interview with the Australian Financial Review, while his business partner Doug Mitchell explained that while it is "not immediately obvious," the video game industry is "massive" and the duo are planning to get development on both of these games underway.

McNamara's next game is called Whore Of The Orient, explained Miller, although he did not go into details regarding what style the game will take.

Miller explained, "[Games are] four-dimensional storytelling. A game can literally become the equivalent of a novel."

"If you talk to Brendan [McNamara], who is the brilliant mind behind this, it's all the same issues as film. Instead of writing a 100-page screenplay, he wrote a 2800-page screenplay. But it's the same dialogue, acting, blocking, wardrobe, costume, lighting, vehicle simulations. It's a movie that's played interactively at home."

Mitchell added, "With the government's support we can immediately go forward with two games."

"It's not immediately obvious but the potential in the video games sector is massive. Just from the statistics people are showing me, it's a $60 billion industry fast-tracking towards $90 billion."
