The next ‘Mad Max’ movie without Charlize Theron is the Furisa Prequel Var Variety2 min read
George Miller plans to expand the “Mad Max” universe with a prequel movie based on Charlize Theron’s impeller Furiosa from “Fury Road” in 2014.
In an interview with The New York Times, the director said the film is an original story and he is looking for an actress in his 20s to take on the role. He said Theron – who is 44 – had considered using de-aging technology to allow him to participate again, but decided not to.
“For a long time, we could only use CG de-aging in Charlize, but I don’t think we’re still there,” Miller said. “Despite the heroic efforts of the ‘Irishman’, I think there is still an unusual valley.”
Miller and co-writer Nick Lathuris created the story for each character while prepaying the “Fury Road” script, but little is known about Furiso’s past. In the photo, he is a war captain under leader Emartan Joey, but went against him to free Joey’s concubines. He then formed an alliance with Max Rakatansky as Tom Hardy.
Miller has directed four “Mad Max” movies and was nominated for Best Picture and Best Director for “Fury Road” in 2015. After finishing shooting for “Three Thousand Years of Aspiration” starring Idris Elba, he is planning to shoot the film Furisa and Tilda Sweeton. That project was unveiled at the 2018 American Film Market.
MGM has signed an agreement for the internal rights of “three thousand years”. Plot details under wrapping. The film will be released in the United States through MGM’s joint distribution and marketing entity United Artists. MGM News was first published by Deadline Hollywood.
