AceShowbiz - Chris Hemsworth is literally enduring the heat at work for at least the next few weeks. The Australian actor has announced that filming on "Mad Max " prequel, "Furiosa", which he stars in, has officially begun.
To mark the production kick-off on Wednesday, June 1, the Thor depicter in Marvel Cinematic Universe shared the first photo from the set. Making use of his social media accounts, he posted an image of the film's slate which is placed in the middle of the desert.
"A new journey in the Mad Max saga begins #FURIOSA #georgemiller," the "Thor: Love and Thunder" star captioned it, tagging his co-star Anya Taylor-Joy and photographer Jasin Boland, who reposted it on his own Instagram page. "Time to get your #warboy on… So stoked to be with these guys again!" the photographer wrote in the caption of his own post.
Last month, it's reported that "The Queen's Gambit" star "wants to" shave her head to mimic the look Theron sported in the 2015 movie, but director George Miller doesn't share her vision. The film's costume designer Jenny Beavan told Variety, "She wants to, but George doesn't want her to. So I don't know whether she will or not."
Taylor-Joy has also shared her excitement to work on the film. "The thing that makes me most excited about 'Furiosa' is, No. 1, George Miller. That brain is incredible. I feel so lucky and privileged to spend time with him, and to grow alongside him," she gushed. "I'm also really excited to do something physical. To physically become something that will weirdly give me a lot of peace. I'm quite excited to work hard."
As for Hemsworth, his role has not been officially disclosed, but when his casting rumors swirled back in 2020, it was said that he was circling the role of a character called Dementus. Tom Burke is also cast for an undisclosed role. The movie eyes a May 24, 2024 release date.
