Mad Max Furiosa’s Release Date, Cast & Other Details
Following George Miller’s four chapters in the mad max world, fans await its fifth installment, Mad Max Furiosa, which is reportedly a prequel. A tidbit reveals that Miller had a script for Furiosa even before the Mad Max: Fury Road’s filming commenced. Despite a 3-decade hiatus between Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome and Mad
Max: Fury Road, the franchise has been critically acclaimed. Reports claim that Furiosa is still in the pre-production phase.
The audience was first introduced to Furiosa in Mad Max: Fury Road as a renegade Imperator who is being led by Immortan Joe. However, Furiosa sets herself on a mission of liberating Joe’s concubines and further join hands with Max Rockatansky. Charlize Theron leads the cast as Furiosa whereas Hugh Keays-Byrne and Rock Atansky play Joe and Max respectively. IN the film, the characters’ backstories are not unveiling entirely.
So, what to expect in Furiosa? What will be the storyline? Is Charlize reprising her role or is there a new face? Most importantly, how long would it take to hit the theatres? We have got the answers. Here’s everything we know about Mad Max- Furiosa movie:
Mad Max: Furiosa Release date
Although there is no concrete information about the release date, still speculations have it that Furiosa will not take several years like George’s previous projects. Currently, Miller, who is also the co-writer, director, and co-producer of the flicker, is working on “Three Thousand Years of Longing” which features Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba. The project was due for filming in March last year, yet due to the production halt, is failing to stick to its predetermined schedule. There is a possibility that Furiosa will be a summer release, which will come out likely by June 2023. The movie might be extended to a further date amidst uncertain times. Thus, not much could be said yet.
Mad Max: Furiosa Cast
Sadly, the Furiosa you have known in Mad Max: Fury Road is not returning for the prequel. Filmmakers have signed off Anya Taylor-Joy to portray the protagonist’s younger version. Anya gained popularity after her role in Netflix’s original, THe Queen Gambit. Taylor is also a part of projects like Edgar Wright’s Last Night in Soho and Robert Egger’s The Northman, which are slated to release before Furiosa.
In addition, Chris Hemsworth who is popularly known as Thor in Marvel Cinematic Universe will be a new face in Furiosa. Chris has also played a significant part in Extraction and Bad Times at EI Royale. HBO’s Watchmen fame, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is all set to appear in the upcoming film Mad Max. Their roles are still a mystery to us, but we expect them to spell magic to their characters.
Mad Max: Furiosa Plot Twist
It is no surprise that Max Mad- Furiosa will follow the early life of Furiosa in what is called “Green Place.” It shall unfold a detailed set of events that made her the fierce warrior of all time. The plot thread will also include her encounter with warrior women referred to as Valucini. Later, the warrior was abducted from the group as a young child, since then, she is making her way to her ideal childhood hometown.
Be ready to experience something creative and unique by the filmmakers. Hoping that the production is pushed forward and we see an early release of the film. Till then, stay tuned for more updates from the entertainment world.
