The synopsis comes courtesy of Warner Bros. (via SFFGazette.com), and teases the upcoming tale centered around Furiosa, a character initially introduced in Fury Road and played by Charlize Theron. In the upcoming film, Furiosa’s (played by Anya Taylor-Joy) origin story will be told, including how the woman makes it through a variety of trials after being taken into the hands of a great Biker Horde.

“As the world fell, young Furiosa is snatched from the Green Place of Many Mothers and falls into the hands of a great Biker Horde led by the Warlord Dementus,” reads the synopsis for the upcoming film. “Sweeping through the Wasteland they come across the Citadel presided over by The Immortan Joe. While the two Tyrants war for dominance, Furiosa must survive many trials as she puts together the means to find her way home.”

The film will be led by Golden Globe winner Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit), Chris Hemsworth (Avengers: Endgame), and Tom Burke (Mank). The latter replaced Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, who exited the project due to scheduling conflicts.

The Mad Max prequel is written and directed by George Miller, who is co-producing the film along with Oscar-nominated producer Doug Mitchell. Miller’s Australian-based Kennedy Miller Mitchell banner is also attached to produce.

Even though the film had a poor box-office turnout with a worldwide gross of over $370 million, Mad Max: Fury Road was still a critical success, with critics praising its cinematography, production design, and the performances of Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron, who both had a difficult time during filming. It also won six Oscar awards out of 10 nominations, including Best Production Design, Best Film Editing, and Best Costume Design.
