Actor Chris Hemsworth has confirmed in a social media posting that filming has well and truly begun on the George Miller-directed “Mad Max: Fury Road” prequel “Furiosa”.
The “Thor” star revealed a photo of a slate from the set of the movie which has begun its shoot in the Australian outback town of Broken Hill in New South Wales.
The actor along with co-star Anya Taylor-Joy and Miller all arrived in the area in mid-May ahead of the shoot, but Miller subsequently jetted out to attend Cannes for the premiere of his most recent film “3000 Years of Longing”.
Tom Burke and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II co-star in “Furiosa” which is said to span a fifteen year time period and has Taylor-Joy playing a younger version of Charlize Theron’s Imperator Furiosa.
One key change with the new film is cinematographer with Simon Duggan (“he Great Gatsby,” “Hacksaw Ridge,” “I, Robot”) taking over from John Seale.
“Furiosa” is targeting a 2024 release.
