It’s been nearly five years since the release of MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, and fans have been anxiously awaiting George Miller‘s return to the Wasteland. Despite the current COVID-19 pandemic bringing just about every film and TV production to a halt, there is work being done where it can, and buried in a Variety article comes a small tidbit regarding Miller’s next MAD MAX film.
The outlet states that George Miller has been talking with several names, including THE NEW MUTANTS’ Anya Taylor-Joy, for the lead of his Furiosa spin-off. These auditions have naturally been taking place via Skype, and it was also stated that George Miller hopes to start shooting the spin-off in 2021. While I’m certainly excited by the prospect of Miller bringing the next story of the MAD MAX franchise to life, I’m not about to hold my breath.
More to come…
