MAD MAX: FURIOSA Rumored To Be In The Works With WATCHMEN's Yahya Abdul-Mateen II On Board

It's been a while since we had any solid updates on a follow-up to George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road, but a new rumor now claims that a prequel focusing on Furiosa (Charlize Theron) is in development...

Some potentially great news for Mad Max fans here, as a new rumor claims that director George Miller is indeed planning a follow-up to Fury Road, and is expected to begin prep as soon as he's done filming his current project, Three Thousand Years of Longing.

According to Collider’s SneiderCut podcast, the movie is indeed being developed as a Fury Road prequel and will focus on a younger Furiosa before she became one of Imortan Joe's Imperators. Sneider seems doubtful that Charlize Theron will reprise the role, however, and believes a younger actress will wind up being cast.

He has also heard that Watchmen and Aquaman actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II is being eyed for the male lead.

It's very early days and Sneider cautions that we should take this with a pinch of salt for now, but hopefully it does come together. It would be disappointing if Theron didn't return as Furiosa, but perhaps we could see her and Tom Hardy back in the saddle for a more direct sequel to Fury Road at some point.
