Reported by Variety, George Miller’s upcoming Mad Max prequel, Furiosa, has cast Anya Taylor-Joy (The New Mutants), Chris Hemsworth (Thor, Ghostbusters) and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman, The Watchmen).
Taylor-Joy will be playing the title role, a younger version of Furiosa who was originally portrayed by Charlize Theron in 2015’s Mad Max: Fury Road. Miller decided to re-cast the role with a younger actress as opposed to using de-aging technology.
The upcoming film will be directed, produced and co-written by George Miller.
