HOLLYWOOD – Mad Max maestro, George Miller, has today confirmed that his next project before returning to the apocalypse will be a sequel to the celebrated Spike Lee film, Malcolm X.

Fury Lane is based around a short story written by Phillip K. Dick which proposes that after his death, Malcolm X was taken to a secret Nation of Islam laboratory under a Brooklyn Burger King and brought back to life using a combination of futuristic robotic technology and voodoo. Malcolm is then programmed to go out into the world and preach the word of the nation but something goes wrong with his programming and he turns his back on the faith. Several fight scenes later he finally faces and defeats Louis Farrakhan in a bloody battle to the death. X then goes on to found a civil rights organisation that accepts all creeds and colours which eventually leads to 10,000 years of uninterrupted peace on the planet Earth.

Spike Lee was once attached to the project but the director seems to have gone underground since his magical remake/molestation of Old Boy narrowly missed out on taking the number one spot on the IMDB top 250 away from The Shawshank Redemption.

Denzel Washington was said to be keen to reprise the role of Malcolm X but he was contractually obliged to star in the long-awaited sequel to 2 Guns and was forced to decline, which then opened the door for Charlize Theron to graciously accept the part:

Viva fucking feminism, bitches.

Malcolm X: Fury Lane is due for release in 2016
