Anya Taylor-Joy will play the title role in the now confirmed Mad Max spin-off, Furiosa!

Furiosa will reveal her origins and will track the genesis of Furiosa before she teamed up with Max Rockatansky in Fury Road. Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II have also joined the cast.
  Furiosa is a renegade character who was a notable force in Max’s survival in the desert. The character was created by Australian director-producer-screenwriter, George Miller, who wrote and directed all films in the Mad Max franchise. She was protrayed by Charlize Theron in the 2015 post-apocalytic film, Mad Max: Fury Road.

Miller is set to direct, co-write and produce the standalone film alongside his longtime Oscar-nominated producing partner Doug Mitchell.

Taylor-Joy was most recently seen on the big screen in the superhero horror film, The New Mutants. Her starring role in Netflix's miniseries The Queen's Gambit will make its premiere on October 23.
