SYDNEY (AP) — A prequel to the “Mad Max” movie franchise starring Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth will be filmed in Australia.

“Furiosa” is slated for release in mid-2023, and the New South Wales state government leader says it’s expected to become the biggest film ever made in Australia.

Hemsworth and writer-director George Miller say they’re happy to be filming in their home country.
