George Miller brought back his classic Mad Max franchise in 2015 with Mad Max: Fury Road. With the new film came a new hero, Furiosa, played by Charlize Theron. We’re getting more Furiosa in her own standalone film revealing a backstory only hinted at in Fury Road. “Furiosa” will star Peaky Blinder’s Anya Taylor-Joy and the younger Furiosa along with Thor’s Chris Hemsworth and Watchmen’s Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
Miller brings back much of the same crew for the new film. Fury Road won multiple Oscars and praised for its use of practical effects. It was considered a success bringing in $375.2 Million at the global box office.
