Imperator Furiosa may soon start running again.
Thursday marked the fifth anniversary of Mad Max: Fury Road, the revealing action of George Miller with Tom Hardy in the role of the silent Max and Charlize Theron in the role of Furiosa, the deadly warrior with a metal arm, shaved head and wild I will survive.
The sources released a long oral history of the film’s creation, and although most of the interviews focus on Fury Road (and how it got so close to not happening at all), Miller had some new details to share about what he could have had the future of the Mad Max universe.
Miller confirmed the rumors:
Miller confirmed to the sources that he had developed a standalone film that has long been rumored to focus on Furiosa, but Theron, 44, will not repeat his role. Instead, the new film is conceived as a prequel that explores the history of Furiosa, and the director is currently trying to play a 20-year-old actress.
Miller will shoot the movie after finishing his current work:
Miller added that he hopes to shoot the film Furiosa after completing his current work, Three Thousand Years of Longing, a drama film starring Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba, who has been delayed by the crown.
Rumors have been circulating about Miller’s sequel to Mad Max for some time now, and the director has already said that as he wrote Fury Road, he developed a broad background for Theron’s wild Imperator.
