George Miller wants to know: His apocalyptic action film “Mad Max: Furiosa” is so massive that it needs its own VFX forge just for the film.

“Mad Max: Furiosa” will be one of the biggest action productions of the next few years, that much is certain. After all, it’s up to director George Miller to top his Oscar-winning masterpiece “Mad Max: Fury Road” – in every respect. The prequel to “Fury Road” should be more epic, action-packed and emotional. Not an easy feat considering what a visual feast Fury Road was.
And yet: If anyone can pull off this film miracle, it’s Miller himself. Filming in Australia has already been completed and the team is now concentrating on post-production. And just for this film, London-based studio DNEG, which specializes in visual effects and computer animation, will open an all-new branch in Sydney, Australia, in early 2023 (via indiewire). Under creative director Andrew Jackson (“Tenet”), the team is to take care of the effects for “Mad Max: Furiosa”. A total of 500 employees will come to the new location to realize Miller’s vision. Namit Malhotra, Chairman and CEO of DNEG, is enthusiastic about this venture:
“There is nothing better than starting a great studio with a great film or with a great filmmaker. This is the best of both worlds. As long as we can keep making great films and bringing the visions of great filmmakers to life, this is the secret of success.”
However, it will still be until the German cinema release of “Mad Max: Furiosa”. May 23, 2024 take a while, that is. Until then, you can enjoy the waiting time with these end-time films from our Video sweeten.
Mad Max: Furiosa: Anya Taylor-Joy is blown away by the production
As the title suggests, Mad Max: Furiosa will focus on the heroine of Fury Road and show how she became the feared emperor of the tyrannical ruler Immortan Joe. She was portrayed in the 2015 action hit by Charlize Theron, who of course won’t be returning this time. Anya Taylor-Joy (“The Queen’s Gambit”) will play the young Furiosa. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporters She said she was overwhelmed by her experience on set:
“It will take me the full two years before the film’s release to process what I left 12 days ago (‘Mad Max: Furiosa’ finished filming ed.). [‚Furiosa‘] was the most life changing experience I have ever had with such talented artists. I really felt like I grew so much doing it, but yeah, it’s wild. It’s absolutely unique.”
Anya Taylor-Joy was brilliant in Thoroughbreds, which you can stream on Amazon
So the experiences of the 26-year-old are a lot better than Charlize Theron’s for the direct predecessor film. Theron was known to have fallen out with co-star Tom Hardy and found the grueling shooting in Africa so exhausting that she felt “unsafe” at times. So it’s good that Taylor-Joy’s time in the post-apocalypse turned out to be a lot more positive. In addition to Taylor-Joy, Marvel star Chris Hemsworth, Tom Burke, Nathan Jones and Angus Sampson also star.
