Furiosa Film in the Works?
Here's an interesting and not entirely unexpected development if I ever heard one. A report from the Herald Sun seems to indicate that we may be getting a prequel to the beloved Mad Max: Fury Road that centers on fan-favorite character, Furiosa.
The report states that a Furiosa film is gearing up at Broken Hill Studios in New South Wales. I wouldn't take this too seriously just yet, but it's fun to think about. Mad Max: Fury Road was my favorite movie last year, and much of that film's success can be attributed to the phenomenal portrayal of the fearless Furiosa played by Charlize Theron. I would be one of the first people in line at the theater to see how that woman got to be where she was and what fuels her blood-curdling rage.
My one potential problem with this development coming to fruition is the lack of George Miller. He created the world and I can't imagine anyone quite living up to it the way he does. Then again, J.J. Abrams just made what I believe to be the third best Star Wars film, so we'll see. All of these are just big "ifs", I'm not even sure this movie is actually getting made. Here's hoping it does happen and that they put the care that is needed into it AND that we get Miller on it at least as some sort of consultant.
