Anya Taylor-Joy plays the heroine, but what roles will Chris Hemsworth and Tom Burke play?
The filming of Furiosa started in May in Australia, just after George Miller visited Cannes to present his new film Three thousand years waiting for youand Warner Bros. unveils its official synopsis today. “As the world crumbles, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Land, where all the Mothers live, and falls into the hands of the great Biker Horde led by Warlord Dementus. Traversing the ravaged lands of Wasteland , they arrive at the Citadel presided over by Immortan Joe. As the two tyrants oppose each other for world domination, Furiosa must survive many fights if she wants to find her way back home.”
George Miller: “All stories are allegorical! »
We know that Anya Taylor-Joy succeeds Charlize Theron in the role of Furiosa, but the characters of Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Tom Burke (mank) have not yet been revealed. The first had been announced as the big villain of this prequel, which would rather stick here to the new Warlord, Dementus. A character who was not created especially for this film, since he appears in the video game madmax, released in 2015. Could Burke succeed Hugh Keays-Byrne, who died in 2020? In any case, this project will develop the story of the heroine of Mad Max: Fury Roadand George Miller finds elsewhere for Furiosa a good part of his team: his co-screenwriter Nico Lathouris, his production designer Colin Gibson, his editor (and wife) Margaret Sixel, his make-up artist Lesley Vanderwalt, his composer Junkie XL… Nathan Jones and Angus Sampson will resume their roles from Rictus and Organic Mechanic.
Furiosa is expected in theaters on May 22, 2024.
