More than two years after Mad Max: Fury Road became a worldwide hit – going on to win six Academy Awards – director George Miller is suing Hollywood studio Warner Bros over unpaid earnings.

The directors of the production company are Miller, whose stellar directing career includes two Happy Feet movies and the Mad Max series, and his longtime producing partner Doug Mitchell.

It's a dispute that seems to show why Miller is yet to make two more long-planned Mad Max movies.

He famously overcame more than a decade of setbacks to make the fourth movie in the action series, including three major delays, three actors down to play Max - Mel Gibson, Heath Ledger then Tom Hardy - then having to switch the gruelling shoot from Australia to Namibia.

Justice David Hammerschlag said the agreement to make Fury Road included a condition that Kennedy Miller Mitchell would receive a $US7 million bonus if "the final net cost" of the movie was not more than $US157 million, after certain costs were excluded from calculations.

Miller and Mitchell told Fairfax Media they were disappointed that "after all the hard work and success of the film, the studio failed to honour its obligations" to them.
