Mad Max: Fury Road is considered to be one of the most acclaimed blockbusters of all time. The highly anticipated prequel, Furiosa, is still a long way to go. Sadly, the Covid-19 virus is impacting production.

Daily Mail reports that the production has been temporarily suspended because director George Miller tested positive for COVID-19. The film is currently shooting in Australia,

The good news, according to the outlet, is that Miller is able to isolate himself at his home in Sydney and production will hopefully resume next week. The outlet reached Warner Bros Discovery for comment, and so far they have received no response.

It’s nothing new in the Covid-19 era of productions, especially with $100 million plus sets being shut down because of it. But they have to row with the punches.

Mad Max: Furiosa is supposed to hit theaters on May 24th, 2024. The film stars Anya Taylor-Joy, Chris Hemsworth, Angus Sampson, and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.
