Anya Taylor-Joy has shared her excitement about working with Director George Miller on Furiosa, ahead of the planned August start to filming here in Australia. The Mad Max prequel will also star Chris Hemsworth (Thor: Love and Thunder) and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Watchmen).
Taylor Joy told Variety magazine:
“The thing that makes me most excited about ‘Furiosa’ is, No. 1, George Miller” Taylor-Joy says. “That brain is incredible. I feel so lucky and privileged to spend time with him, and to grow alongside him. I’m also really excited to do something physical. To physically become something else is something that will weirdly give me a lot of peace. I’m quite excited to work hard.”
Furiosa tells the origin story of Imperator Furiosa, played by Charlize Theron in 2015 in Mad Max: Fury Road. The film was hugely popular with audiences and went on to win 6 Academy Awards. Fury Road was filmed in Sydney and featured over 40 MCTV extras, who are now part of one the most iconic cinema franchises ever. More to come on this one….
