George Miller Plans To Start Filming 2021

Mad Max director George Miller wants to cast actress Anya Taylor-Joy to replace Charlize Theron in the planned spin-off Mad Max: Furiosa.

Miller is actively holding auditions for his Mad Max: Fury Road prequel, which he hopes to begin shooting next year, and he’s already auditioned The Witch actress Taylor-Joy.

Variety reports that –

“Director George Miller, for instance, has been meeting with names including Anya Taylor-Joy for his ‘Furiousa’ [sic] spin-off, which he hopes to start shooting in 2021. Of course, Miller is making concessions to coronavirus — those auditions have taken place via Skype.”

Taylor-Joy isn’t the only candidate to take the lead, The GWW reports that Miller is also looking at Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) to star as a younger Imperator Furiosa.

The film is also said to be looking at Richard Madden (Game Of Thrones) to play the part of a –

“breathtakingly handsome man with an angel’s face that is scarred by a deep forehead wound stitched together with shiny chrome staples.”

There are no other details known right now, so we don’t know at what part of Furiosa’s previous life will be covered, but seeing as she’s already a badass in Fury Road, there’s a lot of ground to cover when it comes to her experience.
