Time has become so irrelevant to me due to what 2020 has brought us that I completely forgot that Anya Taylor-Joy was reportedly being looked at to play Mad Max character Furiousa in a standalone origin movie. It wasn't until this morning when I saw the news this morning that I remembered writing about. It felt like a lifetime ago.

THR is reporting some pretty big casting news for the project. They are confirming that Anya Taylor-Joy (The New Mutants) will play a young Furiosa, who will star alongside Chris Hemsworth (Thor) and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Candyman). No announcement is made of who Hemsworth and Abdul-Mateen will be playing.

Warner Bros. hasn't green lit the project yet, but it appears that it is underway of doing so due to these castings. George Miller, who previously made the famous 80's trilogy and 2015's Mad Max: Fury Road has expressed interest in returning to this world and wanted to expand on the character of Furiosa. He will be directing, co-writing and producing the movie. Filming is unclear for Furiosa, possible due to Hemsworth having to film Thor: Love And Thunder starting in January.

As long as Miller is the one doing this project with this cast, I'm very excited to get a similar theatrical experience that I got from Mad Max: Fury Road. I cannot wait for when all theaters reopen so we can have that again.
