While their main focus of late seems to be getting their wonky superhero slate right (and with “Aquaman”, there’s a glimmer of hope), Warner Bros are also planning to rob the vaults for some future coin.

In an interview over at The L.A Times, Warner Bros. CEO, Kevin Tsujihara, hinted at the inclusion of new “Mad Max” and “Matrix” films in the studio’s future – if they can get their skeets into place on those.

“We have incredible franchises on the features side such as The Matrix. We’d love to work with George Miller on furthering the Mad Max franchise,” he said.

Both “Mad Max : Fury Road”, released in 2015, and the now two-decades-old “Matrix” (1999) were bonza hits for the studio, so no surprise that they’d be keen to bring Max and Neo, respectively, back for more.

A fifth “Mad Max” – which director George Miller originally considered shooting back-to-back with “Fury Road” – and a fourth “Matrix” have been in the tinkering stage for a while.

Warners were confident their next big franchises laid in the “Fantastic Beasts” and “LEGO” movies but the newest instalments of those added little to Tsuijhara’s bank balance.

“The second film didn’t perform as well as the first, but I think we know what we need to do to get the third film hopefully even better than the first one,” he said of “Fantastic Beasts”. “And J.K. Rowling is really working hard now on that third script, and we’re going to get it right. She has an incredible vision of where she wants to go with this that is incredibly exciting.”

As for “The Lego Movie 2”, Tsuijhara is bewildered why it didn’t do much bigger biz.

“It didn’t do as well as tracking would’ve suggested, which was a little puzzling. The first movie was so fresh and so different. We need to continually rethink the experience, but the Lego brand is incredibly strong. On the game side, it’s been an incredible franchise.”

Rocky 7!?

While we’ll unlikely see Creed belting his glove again, Sylvester Stallone says Rocky Balboa isn’t out.

The actor  made the revelation today at the Cannes film festival, where his long career and latest ‘Rambo’ film are under the Croisette’s spotlight.

While ‘Sly’ hints that his participation in the “Creed” franchise might be two and out, the 72-year-old says a seventh “Rocky” film could be on the cards.

“I have a great idea for Rocky. He finds this fella who’s in the country illegally and it becomes a whole thing. It would be really phenomenal, really different”.

“It’s like a magician,” he continued. “Once you’ve seen how he does the tricks you’re not impressed any more. It’s the same thing with Rocky. You’ve seen everything, so you’re like, ‘How can it be different?’ That would be different. When you take him and throw him out of the country and he’s in another world. It could work.” he said.

Stallone didn’t say whether it’d be Balboa, who we last saw in 2018’s “Creed II”, training the immigrant.

The actor had intended for 2006’s “Rocky Balboa” to be the character’s swansong but returned to the role when the idea for the “Creed” films were presented to him.

Stallone was at Cannes to attend a a 4K restoration screening of his groundbreaking actioner “First Blood” and promote its fourth sequel “Last Blood”, which sees the long-suffering vet going up against cartels in Mexico.

“He goes out there and bad things happen,” Stallone said. “There’s going to be some serious vengeance in this movie. A lot of people are going to get killed.”
