Idris Elba, Tilda Swinton Join George Miller's 'Three Thousand Years of Longing'

Mad Max universe creator and director George Miller is hard at work on his next feature film, Three Thousand Years of Longing. The title doesn't really give us any ideas as to what the film may be about, but some reports are saying it'll have something to do with genies.

The big news out of this weekend's AMF (American Film Market), at least according to Deadline, is the interest in the global market for Miller's film.
