It's finally happening
. George Miller is set to write, produce, and direct a prequel telling the story of Imperator Furiosa. This had already been written before Mad Max: Fury Road as backstory.
Furiosa is in advanced development with Warner Bros and will also star Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, with Miller directing, co-writing (with Nico Lathouris) and producing under the banner of his Australian-based company Kennedy Miller Mitchell. Doug Mitchell will return to co-produce.
Furiosa herself has been recast (for age reasons) to Anya Taylor-Joy. George Miller explains:
“For the longest time, I thought we could just use CG de-ageing on Charlize, but I don’t think we’re nearly there yet,” Miller continued.
It's in preproduction, with no release date set. IMDB has an entry
, which can be checked for whenever a date gets announced.
We need more Mad Max doses. Gotta get them while Miller is still with us. Hopefully it won't take 15 years this time.
