No Charlize Theron Furiosa in ‘Mad Max Fury Road’ sequel

Charlize Theron’s Imperator Furiosa doesn’t seem to be in the plans for the follow-up to Mad Max: Fury Road. Director George Miller spoke with Digital Spy about the new film plans, the sequel titled Mad Max: The Wasteland and confirms a third new film with Tom Hardy as the titular character.

When asked if Theron will be back: “I’m not sure, is the answer,” Miller said. “She’s not in the Mad Max [sequel] story, but in one of the stories there’s an interaction between [Max and Furiosa]. I can’t really say more than that because it’s still in progress.”

Theron was the highlight of Fury Road for many fans, but may only appear “briefly” in the two Fury Road follow-ups he has planned.

Miller says that the previously-mentioned sequel name, Mad Max: The Wasteland, may not even be the film’s final title.

“That name came out, that was just a working title,” he said. “Nico Lathouris and I wrote deep backstories on all the characters and they eventually became screenplays – so we have two [more movies].

“I’m happy to say that there’s discussions about them right now, but I hope the next film I make is a very small without any special effects and not many stunts.”

The Digital Spy video also includes Miller answering rumors on fan theories, how Furiosa lost her arm and a possible Mel Gibson cameo. Check it out here.

Fury Road has grossed just under $375 million globally and surprised fans and critics after a long-delayed production.

Mad Max Fury Road is available on Blu-ray and DVD now.
