We're just a few short weeks away from Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga arriving in theaters, and filmmaker George Miller has now revealed his plans for yet another prequel while seemingly spoiling a big cameo.

It's been close to a decade since Mad Max: Fury Road revved into theaters, and with Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga fast approaching, excitement for the movie is understandably through the roof. 

George Miller isn't known for rushing his movies, of course, but after coming up with the idea for Furiosa on the set of its 2015 predecessor, we've now learned that he has yet another idea to expand the post-apocalyptic franchise. 

"In doing what we did in the preparation of Mad Max: Fury Road, we also wrote what happened to Max in the year before we encounter him in [that film]," Miller told Entertainment Weekly (via SFFGazette.com), seemingly confirming that Max Rockatansky makes a cameo appearance in Furiosa.

"And as we get towards the end of [Furiosa], the chronology, basically, we had to see that Mad Max was lurking around somewhere because we do know what happened," the filmmaker teased. "The writers know what happened to Mad Max in that year before, and we have a whole story of that, which I would like to do sometime if I get the chance."

Pressed for details on where things stand with the prequel project, Miller added, "Well, we are certainly working on it. And as I say, we wrote that basically as a novella, and now we've got a chance, we will get that into a screenplay form, and then we'll take it from there."

We've already had one prequel exploring Max's past, but it seems this next one will take place before the events of Fury Road. Unfortunately, Miller shifting focus to this likely closes the door on the sequel to that movie, Mad Max: Wasteland, ever becoming a reality. 

Alas, that was always unlikely given the issues Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron had with each other while shooting Fury Road.

You can also take a look at some new stills from Furiosa in the X post below.

As 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. Sweeping through the Wasteland, they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.

Anya Taylor-Joy stars in the title role, and along with Chris Hemsworth as Dementus, the film also stars Alyla Browne and Tom Burke.

Miller penned the script with Mad Max: Fury Road co-writer Nico Lathouris. The filmmaker has enlisted an impressive creative team, including several of his longtime collaborators (including costume designer Jenny Beavan and makeup designer Lesley Vanderwalt, both of whom won an Oscar for their work on Fury Road).

Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga arrives in theaters in North America on May 24 and internationally beginning on May 22.

Yeah man bring back Hardy as Max. Looking forward to furiosa because I’ve never seen Hemsworth play the villain before. I’m so used to him playing goofy characters like Thor. 😃 They need to bring Hardy back in some capacity that’s what’s up. This film does look fun. Hopefully it will live up to expectations.

@TheMetaMan - You should check out Bad Times at the El Royale. He is pretty good at playing a villain.
TheVisionary25 - 5/3/2024, 5:33 AM
@TheMetaMan - he also played one in Spiderhead on Netflix

The movie itself was not well received but his performance was stated to be the highlight.

Bad Times At The El Royale is good though and he’s great in it.

"Appears To Confirm [SPOILER] Cameo."

You might as well just say it. No surprises at the cinema please! FFS
theBlackSquare - 5/3/2024, 5:46 AM
@theBlackSquare - That said, very pumped for this film!
THEKENDOMAN - 5/3/2024, 5:57 AM
So, hold on here. George Miller cannot do any other movie apart from Mad Max. Why can't you have a crack at something else? DC should reach out to him. After all, he was going to do a JL movie.

MAD MAX, is it that good?

I think he needs to move on from it.

@THEKENDOMAN - Mad Max is his legacy, is as influential to scifi as Ridley Scott's Blade.Runner to Cyperpunk, or Alien to scifi horror.
theBlackSquare - 5/3/2024, 6:30 AM
@THEKENDOMAN - He tried. Didn't quite work out.
THEKENDOMAN - 5/3/2024, 9:03 AM
@NathanielX - I'm not disputing anything you said here, mate. I'm saying he needs to put that talent into something new.
THEKENDOMAN - 5/3/2024, 9:04 AM
@theBlackSquare - 🤣. But I enjoyed Happy Feet. You didn't like it??
TheVisionary25 - 5/3/2024, 5:58 AM
Cool if we get Max cameo in this , i would be down for that!!.

Also Miller has said for a long time that while doing Fury Road that he had come up with 2 ideas, one was a a Furiosa prequel and another was a Max story which was going to be called “Mad Max:The Wasteland” but other then that , we knew no details…

That could still have been this prequel that Miller is talking about so idk why Josh dismissed that possibility and I also doubt Theron’s Furiosa was going to be in it since Max left her at the end.

Anyway whatever it is , I hope it does happen as a fan of the franchise…

I’m looking forward to Furiosa but Max is the main course!!.

@TheVisionary25 - I thought The Wasteland was a sequel that was already in the works. Could be wrong though. Regardless though, I do wanna see more Max too
TheVisionary25 - 5/3/2024, 10:41 AM
@bkmeijer1 - I don’t think he ever confirmed if it was a sequel or a prequel but I could be wrong.

Is it just me, or this movie looks like a love and Blunder, @taika, powerangers type, parody of madmax. Hemsworth's looks like fat thor and doesn't seem serious, seems like a gag laced parody, maybe it's just me. I hope it's better than that, but the trailers all look like that to me. I hope it's a serious movie.

@cubichy - His Max films always felt like each one had their own identity, this one looks like he let the popularity of Furiosa go to his head and instead of giving us something new, were getting more of the same that looks to be a little too self aware this time. I just hope they move on with Max in the sequel.
cubichy - 5/3/2024, 7:04 AM
@HashTagSwagg - he has a plushy hanging off his shirt, the movie will be trash and all hemmworth cam do is imitate what @taika taught him, to be a stooge.
grouch - 5/3/2024, 6:53 AM
mad max, giving all the ladies heart attacks.
cubichy - 5/3/2024, 7:08 AM
@grouch - he has a plushy hanging off his shirt, he doesn't take himself seriously, it's another parody. A gag laced shit show 👞, so sad, I liked the mad max universe, only Hemsworth can crap that up .

@SuperCat - Alia doesn't have time for Paul's "may thy knife" crap.

@NinnesMBC - LOLOL.

He was delayed too much with those unpaid earnings had to be resolved, hopefully now he can and especially if Furiosa is as much of a success as Fury Road was.

Last time he spoke about the subject was in 2019 and how two Mad Max movies were being considered (besides Furiosa) so one of them has to be this Wasteland project.
