Warner Bros. announced the debut date of ‘Furiosa’, the long-awaited ‘Mad Max’ spinoff. IGN reveals that the film, which is a prequel to ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’, is scheduled to hit theaters in June 2023.
‘Furiosa’ will be directed by George Miller, who signs the script together with his longtime partner, producer Doug Mitchell. Anya Taylor-Joy will play the role of a furious young woman.
In ‘Fury Road’ the character was played by Charlize Theron. The performance was praised and Furiosa won over fans, but George Miller did not want to resort to CGI to have Theron in the shoes of a younger version of Furiosa.
Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II have also been confirmed in the spinoff cast.
