One of the most memorable characters from the 2015 film Mad Max: Fury Road is getting her own standalone feature. Furiosa, played in the first film by Charlize Theron, will return in a new movie, simply titled Furiosa, and it will explain her origin story, a representative for Warner Bros confirmed on Tuesday.

Furiosa, a riveting warrior who turns against the film’s villain, Immortan Joe, will be played this time around by Anya Taylor-Joy, who starred in 2016’s Split and its 2019 sequel, Glass. Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II will also star, and George Miller, creator of the Mad Max franchise and director of Mad Max: Fury Road, will return to direct. Miller also wrote the script along with Mad Max: Fury Road co-writer Nico Lathouris.

There’s no release date yet, and specific plot details are sparse, but a statement from Warner Bros. says Furiosa will “take audiences back to the iconic post-apocalyptic world (Miller) created with the origin story of the unforgettable character.”¬†

GlassIn July, Theron told the Hollywood Reporter it was “a little heartbreaking” not to be the one reprising the role. “I really love that character, and I’m so grateful that I had a small part in creating her,” Theron said. “She will forever be someone I think of and reflect on fondly.”

According to Collider, “Hemsworth is expected to appear with a long, silver scar on his face as a character named Dementus, while Abdul-Mateen will likely be playing Pretorian.” There’s no word on whether Mad Max himself, played in Mad Max: Fury Road by Tom Hardy, will appear as a younger version of himself.
