Reports Indicate a 'Mad Max: Fury Road' Prequel is in the Works
Australian outlet Herald Sun is reporting that a Mad Max: Fury Road prequel is in the works at Warner Bros., and could start filming as soon as this year with George Miller returning to direct.
The report indicates that the prequel starring Tom Hardy will be filmed in and around Broken Hill and the script will focus on the backstory of Furiosa, played by Charlize Theron.
There's doesn't seem to be a quotable source, and Miller has gone on record on numerous occasions to say that, while he does intend to return to the franchise, he needs a break from the blockbuster landscape.
We'll have to wait and see if there's further confirmation to come.
