'Furiosa' is an upcoming Australian-American post-apocalyptic action adventure film directed and co-written by George Miller and stars Anya Taylor-Joy as the titular character Furiosa. It serves as both a spin-off and a prequel to 2015's 'Mad Max: Fury Road'. Screenwriter Nico Lathouris, film editor Margaret Sixel, costume designer Jenny Beavan, and composer Junkie XL also return from 'Fury Road'. It will be the fifth film in the 'Mad Max' franchise and is said to be focusing on the origins of Furiosa.

Chris Hemsworth and Tom Burke are set to co-star.


As the world falls, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus. Sweeping through the Wasteland they come across the Citadel presided over by Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.

In March 2020, it was reported Miller was conducting casting auditions for the titular role via Skype, with Taylor-Joy in the mix. In October, the film was announced to be in advanced development, with Taylor-Joy confirmed to be playing the title role, and Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II cast to co-star. Multiple 'Fury Road' crew members were announced to be returning for the film, including film editor Margaret Sixel, production designer Colin Gibson, sound mixer Ben Osmo, and makeup designer Lesley Vanderwalt. In February 2021, composer Junkie XL, who previously scored 'Fury Road', confirmed he would return for 'Furiosa'. Jenny Beavan would also return to work on the costume design. Miller chose Taylor-Joy for the titular role after seeing her performance in an early cut of the film 'Last Night in Soho' and for her audition he assigned her the Mad as Hell monologue from Sidney Lumets 'Network'.[https://www.empireonline.com/movies/news/george-miller-cast-anya-taylor-joy-furiosa-after-seeing-last-night-in-soho/ George Miller Cast Anya Taylor-Joy As Furiosa After Seeing An Early Cut Of Last Night In Soho] Due to a scheduling conflict, Abdul-Mateen II exited the project in November, with Tom Burke cast to replace him. In January 2022, it was reported that Simon Duggan would be serving as cinematographer. In June 2022, it was reported Nathan Jones and Angus Sampson were set to reprise their roles from 'Fury Road'.
