Anya Taylor-Joy plays the title role in Furiosa. The The Queen’s Gambit actress takes over from Charlize Theron, who played the character in Fury Road. That film was again part of the Mad Max series that started in 1979 with Mel Gibson in the role of Max, a police officer in a post-apocalyptic world where motorcycle gangs threaten to take over.
Although Theron is fully behind Miller’s plans to continue telling Furiosa’s story, she let it go last year The Hollywood Reporter know it is a bitter pill to hand over the role. “Listen, I fully respect George, especially after Fury Road,” said the actress at the time. “He’s masterful, and I wish him all the best. But it sure is a bit heartbreaking. I love that character so much, and I am grateful that I was part of her creation. She’s someone I’ve always kept thinking about. ”
Furiosa is due to hit theaters in June of 2023. It was previously announced that Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul Mateen II can also be seen in the film.
