Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga (2024, D: George Miller) - S: Taylor-Joy, Hemsworth

George Miller has tapped Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II to star in “Furiosa,” the prequel movie based on Charlize Theron’s Imperator Furiosa character from 2015’s “Mad Max: Fury Road.”

Taylor-Joy will play title role, a younger version of Furiosa. Miller had said in a May interview with The New York Times that he’d been searching for searching for an actress in her 20s to take over the role. He said at the time he had considered using de-aging technology in order to allow Theron — who’s 44 –to play the part again, but has decided against doing so. Taylor-Joy is 24.

Miller will direct, co-write and produce “Furiosa,” along with his longtime producing partner Doug Mitchell. The film will be produced by Miller’s own Australian-based Kennedy Miller Mitchell banner, together with “Fury Road” partner Warner Bros. Pictures.


In prepping the “Fury Road” script, Miller and co-writer Nick Lathouris developed origin stories for every character, but not much was revealed about Furiosa’s past. In the film, she is a war captain under the cruel leader Immortan Joe, but turns against him in order to free Joe’s concubines. She then forms an alliance with Max Rockatansky, portrayed by Tom Hardy. Miller has directed all four “Mad Max” movies and was nominated for best picture and best director for “Fury Road” at the 2015 Oscars.

I'm guessing she's going to have both arms for a majority of the movie

Will we be able to de-age Miller when this inevitably gets delayed 5 more years?

This gave me wood. Finally someone with some fuckin sense.

I hope Charline does some sort of "present day" opening/closing scene with this.

Yeah, she really made that character- it would be a shame not to see her at least for a prologue/epilogue kind of thing.

re: Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga (2024, D: George Miller) - S: Taylor-Joy, Hemsworth

With George Miller having recently wrapped his next film after Mad Max: Fury Road, the fantasy feature Three Thousand Years Of Longing starring Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton, all sights are set on his return to the Mad Max universe. It was announced that his prequel Furiosa was set to go forward with Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth, and Yahya Abdul Mateen II, and now we have a few more details on the project.

“Whereas Fury Road essentially happened over three days and two nights, this happens over many years,” he said in a press conference this morning in Australia, as Syndey Morning Herald reports. ”You try to make films that are ‘uniquely familiar’. This will be familiar to those people who know Mad Max, and in particular Fury Road, but also it will be unique.”

The film, which is already set for a June 23, 2023 release, will begin production in Australia this June and is expected to be the biggest shoot yet in the country. Bringing $350 million AUD (around $271 million USD) to the economy, it looks like Miller’s scope will be even great for this project. Miller will reteam with production designer Colin Gibson, editor Margaret Sixel, sound mixer Ben Osmo, and makeup designer Lesley Vanderwalt for the film.

Man, I hope I have the audacity to take on a project that big when I'm 76.

Yeah, I don't think I'm making it to 76 or ever getting to drive a $300m project

I was confused while reading this because I was *certain* that Anya Taylor-Joy played one of the ladies on the run in Fury Road. I would have bet money on it. Turns out, it was some other bug-eyed blonde actress.

I’ve only seen Taylor-Joy in a few things but by all accounts I’ve heard, she’s a pretty decent actress so I’m ok with the casting although, despite it making sense that Theron is too old for the story they want to tell, losing Theron is a big hit for my enthusiasm for this movie.

I really like Anya Taylor-Joy, but I do have a hard time picturing her as Furiosa because of the physicality of Theron's portrayal in Fury Road. Taylor-Joy's a good actress, though, so I have faith that she will do justice to the character.

Fuck, he’s doing a movie with Idris? I might go back to the theater for that! I definitely won’t, even by then, but I would think about for a minute and a half.

You know, I didn't know who Yahya Adul Mateen was, and when I looked him up, not only have I seen him in his three best-known performances (as Black Manta in Aquaman, as Bobby Seal in Trial of the Chicago 7 and as Cal Abar in Watchmen series), I never even put together that those three performances were from the same actor. He's pretty good, especially in Watchmen, in an Emmy-winning performance.

Furiosa,” George Miller’s prequel to “Mad Max: Fury Road,” won’t hit screens until 2024. The hugely ambitious action film was originally scheduled to open on June 23, 2023. Instead, it will hit screens on Memorial Day of 2024, Warner Bros. said on Friday.



So far, no studios have announced release dates in May of 2024, so it’s unclear if Furiosa will face a foe even more formidable than Immortan Joe.

By the time the movies hit theaters, WarnerMedia will be no more. The company is being spun off by AT&T and will merge with Discovery. The new entity has been dubbed Warner Bros. Discovery.

It's been a while since I watched Fury Road, so I don't remember; is it 'fyoor-ee-OH-suh' or 'fyoor-ee-oh-SAH'?

I caught it. I even went so far as to go to YouTube to find the clip. I ended up not posting it because I wasn’t sure I was on the right track with the joke.

Of course, it didn’t hurt that I am currently watching the Harry Potter movies with my son.
