After a trip to Cannes for the premiere of his latest film 3000 Years of Longing, Australian director George Miller is back in the Outback, with filming now officially underway on his Mad Max: Fury Road prequel Furiosa.
The film sees Anya Taylor-Joy portraying a young Imperator Furiosa, played by Charlize Theron alongside Tom Hardy in 2015’s acclaimed Fury Road, while the cast also includes Chris Hemsworth (Thor: Love and Thunder), who broke the news of the start of filming on social media.

Along with Taylor-Joy and Furiosa, the film’s cast includes Tom Burke (Mank) as well as Mad Max: Fury Road’s Angus Sampson and Nathan Jones, although it is unclear if they are reprising their roles as The Organic Mechanic and Rictus Erectus respectively.
Mad Max: Furiosa is slated for release in 2024, assuming the shoot goes a lot more smoothly than Fury Road, in which case we could be waiting a good while…
