Production on the latest Mad Max movie Furiosa has reportedly shut down after director George Miller tested positive for Covid. The multi-million dollar blockbuster, which is the fifth instalment in the Mad Max franchise, sees Thor actor Chris Hemsworth play antagonist Immortan Joe as well, while War and Peace actor Tom Burke will star as Dr Dementus alongside The Queen’s Gambit actress Anya Taylor-Joy in the title role of Imperator Furiosa.It’s both a spin-off and prequel to 2015’s Fury Road which starred Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron. Filming has been well underway with Marvel star Hemsworth, 38, spotted in costume on set in the Kurnell area of Sydney, Australia last month after production started in June. However, it’s now claimed that filming has been halted until at least August 15. It’s said that the film’s legendary filmmaker Miller, who has directed the Max Max movies since the series began in the 1970s, tested positive for Covid on Monday. According to Daily Mail Australia, the 77-year-old is currently isolating at his home in Sydney. Miller created the Max Max franchise in 1979 with the first movie starring Mel Gibson in the titular role, and went on to helm the next three, including 1981’s The Road Warrior.
