Los Angeles - Charlize Theron is not certain to return to the Mad Max franchise.

The Oscar-winning actress starred as Imperator Furiosa alongside Tom Hardy in the critically-acclaimed action movie Mad Max: Fury Road earlier this year, but director George Miller has confessed he doesn't know if Charlize will reprise the role for the sequel.

Asked about the possibility, the 70-year-old film-maker said: "I'm not sure, is the answer.

"She's not in the Mad Max sequel story, but in one of the stories there's an interaction between Max and Furiosa. I can't really say more than that because it's still in progress."

What's more, George confirmed that the previously-mentioned sequel name, Mad Max: The Wasteland, is not sure to be the film's final title.

He told Digital Spy: "That name came out, that was just a working title.

"Screenwriter Nico Lathouris and I wrote deep backstories on all the characters and they eventually became screenplays - so we have two more movies.

"I'm happy to say that there's discussions about them right now, but I hope the next film I make is a very small without any special effects and not many stunts."

Mad Max: Fury Road is the highest grossing film in the history of the franchise, having made $374m worldwide.
