In June, the shooting of the "Mad Max: Fury Road" prequel around the background story of the young Furiosa will finally start. At a press conference, director George Miller has now revealed how huge the prequel will actually be. The 76-year-old shared a surprise right at the beginning, namely that the blockbuster, like "Fury Road", will also be shot in Australia, more precisely in New South Wales. Also present was Gladys Berejiklian, the Premier of this Australian state. She informed those present that "Mad Max: Furiosa" will be the biggest production ever shot in Australia. Quite an announcement, after all, "Aquaman" and "Thor: Love and Thunder" were also shot down under. In turn, this also means that "Furiosa" will be much bigger than "Fury Road", and not just in terms of production. While "Fury Road" covers a period of three days, "Furiosa" is expected to span several years. Lead actress Anya Taylor-Joy, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Australian-born Chris Hemsworth will provide the perfect atmosphere in front of the camera, while you cannot probably count on an appearance by "Fury Road" star Tom Hardy. Tom Hardy as Mad Max should not be entirely dismissed, however, since director Miller has planned further appearances with him, though not in "Furiosa". The blockbuster with Anya Taylor-Joy is scheduled for release on June 23, 2023.
