The prequel film will follow the young version of Imperator Furiosa, a war captain played by Charlize Theron in the post-apocalyptic 2015 film Mad Max: Fury Road.
Miller, who directed Fury Road and created the dystopian film franchise, has screen tested Taylor-Joy via Skype call, with the aim of starting production in 2021, according to Variety.
Mad Max: Fury Road, which starred Tom Hardy as the titular Max, is set in post-apocalyptic world where civilisation had fallen and the most precious and fought-over resource is fresh water.
Earlier this year Split star Taylor-Joy played the title role in the film adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma, which she and co-star Johnny Flynn (Mr Knightley) discussed in an exclusive chat with RadioTimes.com. You can watch the interview below.
