NEW MUTANTS Star Anya Taylor-Joy Reportedly In The Running To Play FURIOSA In MAD MAX Spinoff

We recently found out that Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller is planning a spinoff focusing on a younger Furiosa, and now we're hearing that Anya Taylor-Joy is in the running for the lead...

It was recently confirmed that George Miller is indeed lining up a Mad Max: Fury Road prequel that will focus on a younger Furiosa before she became one of Imortan Joe's Imperators, and we may now know of at least one actress that could be in contention for the lead.

According to Variety, Miller has been speaking with actresses remotely, and Anya Taylor-Joy (The New Mutants, Glass) is one name that's said to have auditioned to play Furiosa. Of course, that doesn't mean she'll land the part or even that Miller is considering her, but hopefully we'll have something a bit more solid to go on soon.

We previously reported that Watchmen and Aquaman actor Yahya Abdul-Mateen II was being eyed for the male lead, but there's no mention of that here. It's also been rumored that Killing Eve breakout Jodie Comer might be in the running for Furiosa.

Miller is expected to begin prep as soon as he's done filming his current project, Three Thousand Years of Longing, and hopes to shoot in 2021.
