Jodie Comer being eyed for George Miller’s Furiosa prequel
After last week brought the exciting news that George Miller has finally begun development on his long-discussed Mad Max: Fury Road spin-off prequel focused on Charlize Theron’s Imperator Furiosa, The Hollywood Reporter has brought word that one of the actresses being eyed to take over the role is Emmy winner Jodie Comer (Killing Eve).
Talks began swirling in late March that executives and filmmakers began taking video and phone meetings in hopes of greenlighting new projects over the next 12 months including Miller, who has began eyeing a number of actresses to take on a younger iteration of Theron’s character, with previous word being he was looking to cast The New Mutants‘ Anya Taylor-Joy.
Mad Max: Fury Road, which opened in May of 2015, is the story of Max Rockatansky, played by Tom Hardy (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises). Within this world of fire and blood exist two rebels on the run who just might be able to restore order. There’s Max (Hardy), a man of action and a man of few words, who seeks peace of mind following the loss of his wife and child in the aftermath of the chaos and Furiosa (Charlize Theron), a woman of action and a woman who believes her path to survival may be achieved if she can make it across the desert back to her childhood homeland. A Mad Max prequel might show us her life in The Green Place before she started working for Immortan Joe.
Mad Max: Fury Road also starred Nicholas Hoult (Warm Bodies, X-Men: Days of Future Past), Hugh Keays-Byrne (Mad Max, Sleeping Beauty), Nathan Jones (Conan the Barbarian, Troy), Zoe Kravitz (Divergent, X-Men: First Class), Riley Keough (The Runaways, Magic Mike) and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley (Transformers: Age of Extinction).
