It’s no surprise that everyone is chasing Anya Taylor-Joy. Just five years ago he made his film debut with The Witch – 91%, and the young performer has made important roles with well-known directors and in long-awaited films. That gives George Miller the reason why he chose her to be the protagonist of Furious, a prequel that will explain the origin of the character we first met in Mad Max: Fury On The Road – 97%, film that is now delayed until 2024.

According to Variety, Warner Bros. has tweaked a couple of releases on its next release schedule. The most anticipated is Furious, a spin-off of the Mad Max saga that was going to arrive in 2023, but is now delayed for a whole year to 2024. The reason for this change is not explained, but it has been specified that we can expect it in theaters from 27 of May.
Details about the plot have not been disclosed. However, it is known that Taylor-Joy (Fragmented – 75%, The New Mutants – 62%, Lady’s Gambit – 93%) will be the protagonist and that actors Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will also be part of the cast. That likely indicates that production won’t start until 2023 or the end of next year, if sooner rather than later. What we have for sure is that we will still have to wait a long time to return to that post apocalyptic world.

Mad Max: Fury Road – 97%, as you surely remember, is the story of the titular character, played by Tom Hardy, who has to escape from the dungeons of the tyrant Immortan Joe, a dictator who controls the water in the desert and hostile future. To his bad luck, his escape is entangled with that of Furiosa (Charlize Theron), a mercenary who tries to escape from the control of that villain along with his numerous girlfriends, whom he kept by force. Both must find a way to survive and escape from their fierce servants.

The spin-off, which will narrate the youth of that female character, has been in development and in talks since the film was released half a decade ago. However, Miller (Mad Max – 91%, The Witches of Eastwick – 73%, Babe: The Pig Goes to Town – 62%), who is famous for his careful approach to his films, took his time trying to come up with a worthy story. Likewise, it is known to fans that the film had a somewhat turbulent production due to the location and practical effects.
The other change in the study schedule is for a more or less expected adaptation. This is the Salem’s Lot movie, a novel by Stephen King. That tale is the story of a man who returns to his hometown to discover that he is being ravaged by a group of vampires. It will be directed by Gary Dauberman, writer of It (It) – 85% and It: Chapter Two – 80%. It will hit the billboard in September 2022.
Furious it is still far from starting filming. For now, the protagonist’s fans may be ready for next week’s Emmys where she is nominated for Best Actress in a Miniseries for Lady’s Gambit – 93%. While fans of Miller’s post-apocalyptic saga can find her on HBO Max.
