Exclusive: Jodie Comer and Richard Madden Top Choices For ‘Mad Max: Furiosa’ Leading Roles

Exclusive: The hunt is on for the lead roles in Warner Bros. and George Miller’s ‘Mad Max’ prequel ‘Mad Max: Furiosa’. I’ve heard Jodie Comer and Richard Madden are both wanted for the film.

Comer would play a young Furiosa, and Madden would play a breathtakingly handsome man with an angel’s face that is scarred by a deep forehead wound stitched together with shiny chrome staples.

I can also confirm Jeff Sneider’s report that Yayha Abdul-Mateen II is on the wishlist for a role in the film.

‘Mad Max: Fury Road,’ the most recent installment in the franchise, starred Tom Hardy as Mad Max and introduced Charlize Theron as Furiosa. It is unknown if either will return for this film.

George Miller, writer and director of the previous four films, will be returning to perform those duties on this film as well. Production is aiming to begin at the end of this year in Australia.

No release date has been set as of now.
