The director of Mad Max: Fury Road has denied rumours the film didn’t have a script.

The movie was released to critical and commercial acclaim in 2015, but has since been plagued by speculation that it didn’t have a legitimate script.

Said rumours originated after a picture of 3,500 storyboards laying out the film in almost total entirety emerged online.

But, speaking following similar rumour-debunking tweets from Mad Max: Fury Road co-writer Brendan McCarthy, director George Miller has assured fans that the film “of course” had a script.

“I’m not sure how the notion that Fury Road had no script came about,” he told IndieWire.

“Of course there was a script!

“How else could we have presented the project to a studio, cast and crew to elicit their interest?”

The comments follow an exciting week of updates for the Fury Road prequel Mad Max: Furiosa.
