It looks like the long-awaited prequel to Mad Max: Fury Road is finally in production. George Miller once again takes a seat as its director, as he further explores the early days of Charlize Theron‘s Furiosa. Not much is yet known about how they’ll tackle her story, but we do know that Anya Taylor-Joy will take over the iconic role and is joined by Yahya Abdul-Mateen II and Chris Hemsworth. The latter has now taken to his Instagram account to share that production has started on the film with a first look from the set.
Sadly the photo doesn’t reveal much from the actuals et, but it does confirm two things. The logo is all about Furiosa and offers a great design to make it stand out from the Mad Max one. Yet, production logos generally go through many changes and it wouldn’t be too surprising that it looks drastically different the moment it gets advertised. That’s not all, as we also get the confirmation that they are shooting it on 35 mm film, which highlights Miller‘s love for the medium.
While Theron has considered the recasting as “heartbreaking” as they replaced her with a younger actress, there’s a lot we don’t know about what the approach is for this series. Here’s hoping that perhaps we get an appearance of Theron as the character she made famous to tie the past with the future. With George Miller at the helm, it would be more than just a simple legacy piece.
