Furiosa Star says Project was the “bloodiest and nastiest” they’ve ever been

After the smash award-winning hit of Mad Max: Fury Road, the idea of ​​continuing the franchise directly in any way can be considered a whole enterprise. In 2024, we are expected to see exactly what that entails Crazy Max: Furiosa, a prequel movie that follows Charlize Theron’s now-iconic female warrior will be released. This film will star Anya Taylor-Joy in the titular role — and she recently teased how extravagant the production, which wrapped earlier this fall, was getting.

“I’ve been on a different planet for the past seven months,” explains Taylor-Joy in a recent interview with IndieWire. “I think I need to sit down and try to process what’s happened in the past seven months. But I’m incredibly, incredibly proud of it, and so proud of all the people I’ve had the pleasure of working with, and just how much love and effort and work has gone into it, I’m excited to see it.

“It’s the nastiest and the bloodiest I’ve ever been that says something, really says something,” continued Taylor-Joy. “Anytime I’m dirty or bloodied and not perfectly neat and pretty, I just have a ball, that’s where I feel most comfortable. So yeah, Furiosa was definitely up my alley.”

What’s Crazy Max: Furiosa about?

In Crazy Max: FuriosaAs the world fell, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus. While sweeping through the Wasteland, they encounter the Citadel led by The Immortan Joe. As the two tyrants battle for dominance, Furiosa faces many trials as she gathers the resources to find her way home.

The film is written and directed by George Miller, and Chris Hemsworth also stars as Dementus.

Why is there one crazy max precursor?

As Miller revealed in an interview earlier this summer, the ethos of Furiosa came about while he was writing Fury goneand began to realize that fans might be interested in hearing the character’s origin story.

When we wrote crazy maxthe job was to tell a story that was always on the run and to see how much the audience could casually pick up on,” Miller explained to The AV Club. “That was one of the tricks of Mad Max: Fury Road, that there would be references to things about where she’s from, why they do things, but it was always on the run. There were hardly any moments of rest. We never explained how she lost her arm. We never explain what many moms’ actual green spot was. We never explained how the Citadel works. So we had pretty much completed the screenplay before shooting Fury gone, and we did it because it came from a desire to explain to everyone who Furiosa was – to Charlize when she took the part, and to all the actors and designers and everyone who worked on the Citadel, and so on. The feeling was, gee, this is a pretty good screenplay, and then I kept saying to myself, ‘if Fury gone works, I would love to tell this story.'”

“So it happened, I’m not going to say by accident, but it came out of a need to explain [Fury Road‘s] world that, as I said, essentially took place over three days and two nights,” Miller continued. “It really tries to explain how that world came to be. We also wrote, not a screenplay, but almost in novel form, Nico Lathouris and I, what happened to Max in that previous year, and that’s something we’ll look at later. But by telling each other the story of Furiosa, everything is in it Fury gone had to be explained. In my mind I have a backstory of the Deaf Warrior, who plays the guitar. How can a blind man who can only play the guitar survive in a wasteland where everyone is in extremis? How did he end up there? So we wrote little stories for each character when we made it Fury gone.”
