Charlize Theron is All About Doing a Mad Max: Fury Road Sequel If It Ever Happens

We’re not the only ones who would love to see a direct sequel to Mad Max: Fury Road. Charlize Theron, who majestically brought Imperator Furiosa to life, would love to revisit the character if that sequel ever happened.

Now, we know that George Miller has some Mad Max projects in the works. In fact, we heard that he has two scripts between which he’s debating. However, they’re apparently not Furiosa-related at all. Which seems completely ridiculous. Well, despite the reveal of some on-set tension between Fury Road‘s leads, Charlize Theron said in a recent interview with MTV that she would be totally down to revisit her role saying, “I would love to bring her back to life, are you kidding?… To have people react to something like that where you went and worked your balls off [laughs], it’s really, really nice, it kind of just puts everything into perspective. I can see how people are responding to her and I look at my little girl and I’m like, ‘Yeah I’d love to play this woman again, definitely.’”

She also understands, however, how freaking tired Miller must be! Theron says, “I haven’t seen George since the Oscars. I think all of this has been really overwhelming for him, and he likes to take his time and he’s very concise. I think if he’s ready, he’ll be ready, and hopefully he’ll call.”

We hope he calls, too! Whether it’s now, or many, many years from now. I, for one, would love to see a much older, in-command Imperator Furiosa. One whose led her people through a Golden Age before some other douchenozzle tries to screw it up. And then she’ll call her bulldog Max to help. Or something. Here’s hoping!
