Warner Bros To Release 'Furiosa', 'The Color Purple' In 2023 Theatrically

Share

Earlier this month, Warner Bros. announced plans for simultaneous HBO Max and theatrical releases for its entire slate of movies through to the end of 2021.

Furiosa will follow the titular rebel warrior, who was first introduced in Fury Road, with the prequel exploring the origin of the character long before she became the inspiring operator of Immortan Joe's War Rig and joined forces with Tom Hardy's Mad Max Rockatansky. Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, whom we remember from the role of Hor, will accompany Taylor-Joy in the film.

Miller admitted that he felt it was necessary to cast a younger actress in the flick as he did not feel the technology was good enough to de-age Charlize. 2021 film lineup could debut on HBO Max and in theaters simultaneously has been criticized by some of Hollywood's biggest names. Yesterday's announcement suggests that Warner Bros. intends to continue its commitment to theatrical releases.

Apart from "Furiosa", the production company also revealed the release dates for two more upcoming movies - "Coyote vs. Acme" and "The Color Purple".

The film is written by Guardians Of The Galaxy director James Gunn, Jeremy Slater, Jon Silberman, Josh Silberman and Samy Burch, and it's based on the humor piece Coyote V. Acme by Ian Frazier.

As we sit here anxiously awaiting the next installment of the Mad Max franchise, Warner Bros. granted us a Christmas miracle by announcing that Mad Max: Furiosa will release on June 23, 2023. The adaptation of the Tony-award winning musical, based on Alice Walker's book and Steven Spielberg's 1985 film, is set to be directed by Blitz Bazawule (Black Is King).
