Chris Hemsworth can call Mel Gibson for advice on Mad Max before filming Furiosa
Mad Max prequel, Furiosa, is set to be the biggest film set in Australian history, and star Chris Hemsworth admitted he felt “a lot of pressure” to make the franchise proud. In fact, before the pressure got too much, the actor has now said he could give Mad Max drive Mel Gibson a call for advice on how best to carry on the legacy, revealing that her role in the project is a childhood dream come true.
“This is something I’m going to put my heart and soul into because it’s really for me, of everything I’ve done, the biggest pinch moment because I grew up watching it. “
Created by George Miller and Byron Kennedy, Mad Max began in 1979, with Mel Gibson as the main character, a policeman in a future Australia that is experiencing a societal collapse due to war and severe resource shortages. Gibson would go on to star in two follow-up films, Mad Max 2 in 1981, and Mad Max Beyond the Thunderdome in 1985, before being recast with Tom Hardy for 2015 Mad Max: Fury Road. Of course, Gibson remains a staple in the series despite being replaced, and Chris Hemsworth would be wise to ask the actor how best to approach the next chapter in Australia’s post-apocalypse tale.
Details of Hemsworth’s role in Furiosa have not yet been revealed, but a recent leak claims the Thor star will play a character named Dementus, who is described as a man in his thirties to forties, is “breathtakingly beautiful” and has “an angelic face, marked by a deep wounded forehead sewn with staples shiny chrome. “
Returning director George Miller prepares to start filming Furiosa in New South Wales in 2022 and recently commended the respective governments for their support for the project. “The support from the Federal and New South Wales governments was essential. They made it possible to go ahead with the film, shot in Australia and production based in our home state,” Miller said in a statement.
Furiosa will take place well before the events of Road of fury, following the titular rebel warrior, and exploring the character’s origin long before she became the inspiring operator of Immortan Joe’s War Rig and teamed up with Tom Hardy’s Mad Max Rockatansky. George Miller returns to co-write, direct and produce the project alongside his longtime Oscar-nominated production partner Doug Mitchell.
The queen’s gambit Star Anya Taylor-Joy was cast to play the younger version of Furiosa, succeeding Mad Max: Fury Road star Charlize Theron. “I was amazed by this incredible spirit of George Miller. It’s hard to put into words,” Taylor-Joy said of the film. “I feel so humble and grateful. I think the first thing I thought was, ‘I’m so excited to be working so hard. “The level of commitment that those who came before me have shown, I try to match it. It makes me really excited. I have so much respect for the creators of this crazy world and this collection of characters. I can’t wait to work really hard. “
Several details regarding the film’s plot have now been released, including the idea that it will span several years. “While Fury Road has taken place over essentially three days and two nights, it is happening over many years,” Miller revealed. Furiosa should be published on June 23, 2023. This comes to us thanks to ABC Australia.
