‘Mad Max’ prequel shot in Outback to be released in 2023
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.
“Mad Max: Fury Road,” released in 2015, was mostly shot in Nambia because unseasonal rain left the landscape unusually green.
A number of actors have left Los Angeles for the freedoms of Sydney while Australia has been relatively successful in halting community transmission of COVID-19.
