A hyper stylish apocalyptic joyride of a film, George Miller's Mad Max reboot was undeniably worth the 30 year wait and now Charlize Theron has confirmed that there could be a Furiosa prequel in the works.

In an interview with Variety, the actress revealed she's keen to return to the desert, but is waiting for George Miller's signal.

"I'd love to [return]. There were three scripts. They were written as backstories to Max's character and to Furiosa's character. But at the end of the day, this thing lives and breathes with [director] George [Miller]. I think Warner Bros. knows that. We are all waiting for him to show us the way."

In an interview with The Independent earlier this year, Miller confirmed that there were at least two more scripts for the modern Mad Max lying in wait, saying: "We dug down deep into the subtext, the backstory of all the characters, and indeed the world… and without really thinking about it, we wrote two other screenplays just as part of the bible of the stories," the filmmaker explained.

"Somewhere, if the planets align, there will be two other films."

As well as discussing her willingness to reprise her role as Furiosa, Theron also revealed some interesting details about what her character was originally meant to look like.

"Originally, [George] liked this idea that even though they were in the desert, something happened and people actually turned albino," Theron said. "They became these white ghosts. I had this white hair, kind of like Abbey Lee character. It was very much like that: blonde, bleached, very pale skin, no eyebrows. We played around with African war paint. It would have been a completely different film."

Watch this space for more details and let's hope they get Hardy on board, too.
