It appears that Warner Bros. is developing a new entry in the Mad Max universe. According to Collider, the next film will be a prequel focused on a young Furiosa.
After the critical and commercial success of Mad Max: Fury Road in 2015, director George Miller expressed his desire to develop two more films in the franchise. While one film is meant to serve as a sequel to Tom Hardy’s Fury Road, Miller also wished to create a spinoff starring Charlize Theron’s Furiosa.
Based on this new report, however, it seems the plans for the spinoff may have changed. Jeff Sneider revealed on a new episode of The Sneider Cut that the film will focus on a young Furiosa, which could suggest a different actress will portray the character.
It is unclear how far along in development the project is. It was previously reported that legal disputes between Miller and Warner Bros. had delayed the development of the fifth film in the franchise.
Sneider also revealed that actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II could star in the film alongside the actress portraying Furiosa. Hopefully, fans can look forward to more news concerning the spinoff soon.
