Mad Max spin-off in works

Filmmaker George Miller is reportedly developing a Mad Max: Fury Road spin-off focused on Charlize Theron's character, Imperator Furiosa.

According to Variety, the director hasn't let the coronavirus pandemic halt work on the project, titled Furiosa, as Split actress Anya Taylor-Joy has already auditioned for an undisclosed role via video calling service Skype while in self-isolation.

It's not clear if Theron will be returning as the titular war captain, but rumours suggest the film could serve as a prequel to the 2015 action blockbuster, leading fans to speculate that Joy is potentially lining up to play a younger version of the titular war captain.

Franchise creator Miller is said to be gearing up to begin production in 2021.

The news of the spin-off emerges weeks after it was confirmed Miller will be returning to the desert for a fifth Mad Max film, which he had hoped to begin shooting in Australia later this year.

He has yet to share any casting details for that sequel, although he recently told fans he wanted to bring back his Fury Road stars Tom Hardy and Theron to reprise their respective characters of Max Rockatansky and Furiosa.

Hardy took over the titular role from Mel Gibson, who portrayed the adventurer in the first three Mad Max movies in the late 1970s and 1980s.
