Jodie Comer Being Eyed for Young Furiosa in 'Mad Max' Spinoff

Jodie Comer is being eyed to play the role of a young Furiosa in the upcoming spinoff of Mad Max: Fury Road!

The 27-year-old actress is an Emmy winner for her role as Villanelle on the hit series Killing Eve and she will next be seen in the sci-fi action comedy Free Guy, hitting theaters in December.

George Miller, the director of Mad Max: Fury Road, recently revealed that he’s planning on shooting the Furiosa spinoff next year and it was just announced that Charlize Theron will not be returning to play the role again.

A younger actress will be playing Furiosa in the film, which will be about the character’s backstory. THR says that Comer is being considered for the role.

Another up-and-coming actress has reportedly auditioned for a lead role in the upcoming movie.
