Though it's been a few years since Mad Max: Fury Road, many of us have been dying to see more of director George Miller's vision of the world he had built. We always kept hearing that Miller has plans to make a spinoff movie, but so far it has not seemed to have progressed further than that.

But thanks to Variety, they sneakily shined some light on Miller's next Mad Max project. They say his upcoming spinoff will be a prequel focusing on the character Furiosa. Charlize Theron had played this character in Fury Road and did a fantastic job of giving us an intriguing character with plenty of teases to a fascinating backstory. Variety also subtly mentioned that Miller has screen-tested via skype Anya Taylor-Joy (Emma. & Glass) for the role of Furiosa in the prequel.

As I'm trapped in my home-office praying for the day movie theaters reopen, reading that Anya Taylor-Joy could be Furiosa in her own movie makes me really excited to see this in a theater. I have been ready for more Mad Max movies for far too long, and Anya Taylor-Joy has proven her talents as an actress and could easily take on the role of Furiosa. It will be big shoes to fill after what Theron did, but I'm betting Taylor-Joy has what it takes to honor the character.
