George Miller Eyes ‘Mad Max’ Furiosa Film for 2021, Has Met With Anya Taylor-Joy — Report

Good news for “Mad Max” fans: A new report from Variety claims writer-director George Miller is actively in development on his long-in-the-works “Mad Max” spinoff movie centered on Furiosa, the breakout action heroine played by Charlize Theron in “Fury Road.” Variety’s Justin Kroll and Brent Lang report: “Director George Miller has been meeting with names including Anya Taylor-Joy for his ‘Furiosa’ spin-off, which he hopes to start shooting in 2021. Of course, Miller is making concessions — those auditions have taken place via Skype.”

The Variety report should not come as a major surprise, as Miller has been vocal for a couple years now about wanting to make a proper “Mad Max: Fury Road” sequel and a Furiosa spinoff movie. “Fury Road,” a six-time Oscar winner and Best Picture nominee, was widely celebrated as one of the best films of the last decade. The film starred Tom Hardy in the title role and grossed $374 million worldwide.
