Furious, the highly anticipated spin-off of Mad Max: Fury Road based on the character of the same name played by Charlize Theron, it will hit the big screen next spring.
That doesn’t seem to stop the director’s creativity though. george miller, father of the post-apocalyptic Road Warrior saga. Recently interviewed by The audiovisual clubthe filmmaker revealed that he already had the script for a new prequel movie of the franchise:
“Nico Lathouris and I also wrote, not quite a script, but almost in novel form, what happened to Max the year before and that’s something we’ll get to later. But in telling the story of Furiosa, everything we saw on Fury Road had to be explained. In my head I have a story about the Doof Warrior playing guitar. How can a blind man – who does and can only play the guitar – survive in a desert where everyone is exhausted? How did it come to this? So we wrote little stories for each character when we made Fury Road“.
During the interview, Miller also talked about the birth of the character of Furiosa doing road of fury:
“When we wrote Mad Max our goal was to tell a story that is still set on the loose and see how popular it would be. It was one of the Mad Max: Fury Road stuff, where there would be references to where she’s from, because she does what she does, but still takes place on the loose. There were very few quiet moments. We never explained how he lost his arm. We never explained what the Green Place of the Many Mothers actually was. We never explained how the Citadel works. So we had the script practically complete before shooting Fury Road, and we did it because it was born out of the desire to explain to everyone who Furiosa was, to Charlize when she took the role, and to all the actors and creators and everyone who works at the Citadel and so on. The feeling was, man, this is a really good script, and then I kept repeating to myself, ‘Sand Fury Road works, I would really like to tell this story‘”.
The official synopsis for the anticipated film released by Warner Bros. reads as follows:
“As the world crumbles, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a large horde of bikers led by Warlord Dementus. While exploring the Wasteland, he comes across the Citadel presided over by Immortan Joe. As the two tyrants fight for dominance, Furiosa will have to survive many hardships as she puts in place the means to find her way back home.“.
Furious will hit the big screen on May 24, 2024.
