First look! Newest Mad Max film Furiosa begins shooting in Broken Hill

Mad Max will be making a return to its roots after it was announced that filming for the latest instalment, Furiosa, would take place in Broken Hill, NSW, next April.   

Peter Price, who is the owner of the nearby Silverton hotel, revealed his excitement about the high-octane series coming back to the outback region in an interview with Weekend Today hosts Richard Wilkins and Rebecca Maddern on Saturday.

Wilkins firstly asked Price about how the local residents of Silverton and Broken Hill have reacted to the news.

‘I’m sure they’re going to be as excited as they were forty years ago,’ Price responded, referring to the production of Mad Max 2, aka The Road Warrior, which took place in the same area four decades earlier.

‘As much as we’ve always enjoyed Mad Max 2, with the museum here and all that sort of stuff, we are really looking forward to this new film that’s going to be done out this way,’ he said.        

The Silverton Hotel owner stated that the production will hopefully bring much-needed tourism dollars to the region, which has suffered due to the Covid pandemic.

‘We’re looking forward to a big influx of tourists coming this way,’ Price continued. ‘Some of this stuff that’s going to happen next year is going to certainly bring that, I’m sure.’   

‘Being an Australian movie that was done 40-odd years ago, and it still generates so much interest. We’re getting people everyday coming this way to have a look at the museum.’

Price concluded that the new film would only ‘add to all that’. 

Mad Max Furiosa is set to begin production in Broken Hill next April and is scheduled for release in 2024.

It tells the origin story of a young Imperator Furiosa, who will be played by Anya Taylor-Joy.

The movie will also star Chris Hemsworth and have George Miller back in the director’s chair.

Furiosa was originally portrayed by Charlize Theron in the 2015 blockbuster, Mad Max: Fury Road.
