A new Mad Max movie is currently in the works and could begin filming as early as later this year, sources told The Herald Sun. George Miller is set to direct a new film in the icon Mad Max series once again, this time acting as a prequel rather than sequel to the more recent, Mad Max: Fury Road.

Entitled Max Max: The Wasteland, this new film will primarily focus on the back story of one of Fury Road's most influential and iconic characters - Furiosa, who was played by the very talented Charlize Theron.

Charlize Theron as well as Tom Hardy are expected to reprise their respective roles for The Wasteland.

More about Mad Max: Fury Road (movie)

From director George Miller, originator of the post-apocalyptic genre and mastermind behind the legendary “Mad Max” franchise, comes “Mad Max: Fury Road,” a return to the world of the Road Warrior, Max Rockatansky.

Haunted by his turbulent past, Mad Max believes the best way to survive is to wander alone. Nevertheless, he becomes swept up with a group fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by an elite Imperator, Furiosa. They are escaping a Citadel tyrannized by the Immortan Joe, from whom something irreplaceable has been taken. Enraged, the Warlord marshals all his gangs and pursues the rebels ruthlessly in the high-octane Road War that follows.

Directed by George Miller, Mad Max: Fury Road's release date is May 15th, 2015.

Considering both characters (Max, Furiosa) appeared to have never met each other prior to 'Mad Max: Fury Road', how are they going to do this movie?  Two stories with no connection?  Or is there a connection we are not aware of?

I immediately thought the same thing. But character continuity is not a concern to George Miller with this series.

So whatever. This can't come soon enough. Fury Road melted (and continues to melt) my face.
