Charlize Theron Hasn't Signed On For Any MAD MAX Sequels Yet

A sequel to Mad Max: Fury Road hasn't been officially announced yet, but we do know both director George Miller and star Tom Hardy will be back for more Mad Max whenever it is. What about Charlize Theron? Well, it looks like someone needs to make a phone call..

Mad Max: Fury Road was undoubtedly one of the most fun rides of the summer. Shortly after its initial release, director George Miller announced that a sequel was in the works, tentatively titled Mad Max: The Wasteland, and even before that, star Tom Hardy had revealed that he was already signed on for three future Mad Max adventures post-Fury Road.

Based on a few of Miller's earlier comments, where he stated how he had completed the script for a film titled Mad Max: Furiosa, it was somewhat assumed that Academy Award-winner Charlize Theron, who portrayed the show-stealing Imperator Furiosa, would be back in the next installment. However, according to Theron that doesn't seem to be the case, at least not yet that is.

In a recent interview with USA Today, while promoting her latest release Dark Places, Theron revealed that not only was she not signed on any future Mad Max films, that she hadn't even heard about Mad Max: Wasteland yet: "What's Wasteland? This is all news to me. I have not heard anything like that."

Considering Warner Bros. hasn't even officially announced the follow-up and that 
the film is still in the very early stages of development, this statement from Theron doesn't necessarily mean she won't be back. Also, considering the warm reception her character received, it would probably be in everyone's best interest to bring back Theron in one capacity or another.

From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary “Mad Max” franchise, comes “Mad Max: Fury Road,” a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky.

Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.
