Jodie Comer, known for playing the murderous Villanelle in Killing Eve, can play the young girl Furiosa in the derivative of Mad Max: Fury Road (2015). The character, who was immortalized in the feature by Charlize Theron, will be played by a new actress, and Comer is in contention for the role [via Hollywood Reporter ].
There are not many details about the project yet, but it will be set before the Fury Road events, and will not feature the return of Charlize Theron. Director George Miller already wrote the script for the feature during the pre-production of the 2015 film and showed Theron how to give the actress a better understanding of the character.
Eating is not the only actress vying for the role. Miller previously auditioned with Anya Taylor-Joy ( The Witch, Fragmented ). No names have been made official yet.
Discussed since Fury Road, the Furiosa solo film will only take place after George Miller completes The Three Year Longing, starring Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton, who is currently paralyzed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
