Legendary filmmaker George Miller changed the action genre in 2015 with Mad Max: Fury Roadan Oscar-winning effort featuring one of the most infamous productions in history. Fury gone is already regarded as one of the greatest action movies of all time, and Miller is already returning to that playground with a prequel film titled Furiosawhich follows the origin of the character played by Charlize Theron.
This time around, Anya Taylor-Joy plays Furiosa, and the actress calls the production of Miller’s film a “life-changing” experience. Taylor-Joy recently opened up about the production during an interview with The Hollywood Reporterless than two weeks after she finished filming.
“It’s going to take me the full two years before the movie comes out to even start processing what I just left 12 days ago,” Taylor-Joy said. “[Furiosa] was the most life-changing experience I’ve ever had, with such talented performers. I really felt like I had grown so much, but yeah, it’s wild. It’s nothing short of unique.”
In her latest movie The menu, plays Taylor-Joy with Nicholas Hoult. If you remember, Hoult played along Mad Max: Fury Road as Nux, the driver with a terminal illness who prompted Immortan Joe to help Furiosa’s cause. When the two actors talked about collaborating with George Miller, Hoult was very supportive of Taylor-Joy’s new role.
“He was just so beautifully supportive. We really love each other,” Taylor-Joy explained. “We became brilliant friends, and because he knew I was going to do it [Furiosa] almost immediately after, his only words of advice were, “You got this. You’ll be fine. Trust me, it’s going to be awesome, and I’m really looking forward to seeing it.” So that reassuring and supportive voice was just really helpful.
Furiosa is currently scheduled to hit theaters on May 24, 2024. Taylor-Joy stars in the film alongside Chris Hemsworth and Tom Burke, with Miller again directing.
