Furiosa is a 2023 science-fiction action film about the titular renegade warrior’s backstory before the events of Mad Max: Fury Road.

Written and directed by George Miller (Mad Max franchise), the prequel will star Anya Taylor-Joy in the title role (taking over from Charlize Theron) and Chris Hemsworth.

A press conference with director George Miller and Chris Hemsworth took place in the Australian state of New South Wales.

According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the production team had been hoping to shoot a key action sequence from the movie in 2021 due to a proposed decrease in a local tax incentive, and had already prepared stunts and built souped-up vehicles. However, the tax rebate decision has now been reversed, which has given the producers more time to start filming.

Miller explained the delay in getting the wheels rolling on the prequel: “Since we started Fury Road I think there’s been six different regimes at Warner Bros, Now it’s stabilised very much and they’re able to basically pay attention coherently to the films they want to make and this is one of them.”

He enthused that while Furiosa will be a “unique” instalment in the franchise, the storyline will be familiar to fans.
