It’s been a while now since we’ve heard anything from filmmaker George Miller about his plans for another instalment in the Mad Max franchise, although that perhaps shouldn’t be too surprising given how long it took him to get Mad Max: Fury Road from script to screen.
Nevertheless, it seems that Charlize Theron is still very excited about the prospect of reprising the role of Imperator Furiosa, with the actress telling Variety that:
“I’d love to. There were three scripts. They were written as back stories to Max’s character and to Furiosa’s character. But at the end of the day, this thing lives and breathes with George. I think Warner Bros. knows that. We are all waiting for him to show us the way.”
While we do wait on word from George Miller, we’ll be able to catch Charlize Theron on the big screen this month with the release of the action thriller Atomic Blonde, which opens on July 28th.
