Mad Max Fury Road prequel Furiosa is currently filming in Australia. Originally slated for release in 2023, the film has been postponed for a year by Warner Bros.
You will have to be really very patient before discovering the adventures of Furiosa in the cinema! Warner Bros. has decided to postpone the release of this highly anticipated blockbuster for one year. It will land in theaters on May 24, 2024 instead of June 23, 2023.
A hell of a cold shower for the unconditional fans of Mad Max Fury Road, who will have to wait almost 3 years before finding this post-apocalyptic universe so special. The feature film, still directed by George Miller, is currently filming in Australia. This postponement is not surprising because it is the biggest film ever produced in the country. It will therefore take longer than expected to box and finalize it.
The character of Furiosa, played by Charlize Theron in Fury Road, has been very successful, literally stealing the show from Tom Hardy. George Miller therefore decided in 2019 to dedicate a film to this heroine. More precisely, the filmmaker will tell us about his youth. The latter will be played by Anya Taylor-Joy, who therefore succeeds Charlize Theron.
The intrigue will therefore follow the young woman before she puts herself at the service of Immortan Joe, the big bad of Fury Road. It wouldn’t be surprising to find out in what circumstances she lost her left arm. Note that Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen, the new Morpheus of Matrix 4, will also be in the game.
Recently, Tom Hardy had dubbed the project, not at all bitter not to be part of it and to be taken in the background in Fury Road.
It’s still George Miller’s Mad Max, but he splits his energy between two characters, and it’s really, really cool.
“It was finally the Furiosa movie. Which was fantastic. Fury Road. Furiosa. It was in the title. If you watch it now, it was a passing of the torch of sorts, from Mad Max to Furiosa. That’s what they’re filming now. Furiosa. It was a very well executed succession. It’s still George Miller’s Mad Max, but he splits his energy between two characters, and it’s really, really cool “, underlines the British actor at the microphone of Esquire.
The shooting of Furiosa therefore began in August in Australia, with an Anya Taylor-Joy “very excited to be doing something physical.” “To transform myself physically, strangely, that calms me a lot”, she confided last June in the columns of Variety. As a reminder, Furiosa is shifted and will land on May 24, 2024 in the USA and surely on Wednesday May 22, 2024 in our regions.
The Netflix star of The Lady’s Game, revealed in The Witch, will also star in Edgar Wright’s Last Night In Soho, in theaters on October 27. As for Tom Hardy, we will find him in Venom 2, scheduled for October 20.
