British star Tom Burke has replaced Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in George Miller's much-anticipated movie 'Furiosa'.
As per reports, Abdul-Mateen had to leave the project, which is a prequel to Miller's 2015 blockbuster 'Mad Max: Fury Road', due to a scheduling conflict.
Burke will now feature alongside Hollywood stars Anya Taylor-Joy and Chris Hemsworth in the movie.
In the film, Taylor-Joy is taking on the role of Imperator Furiosa, which was famously played by Charlize Theron in 'Mad Max: Fury Road'.
Miller is directing, co-writing and producing the project with his longtime producing partner Doug Mitchell. Miller's Australian-based Kennedy Miller Mitchell banner will produce.
Warner Bros will release 'Furiosa' on May 24, 2024.
Burke is best known for featuring in critically-acclaimed movies such as David Fincher's 'Mank' and 'The Souvenir'. He will next star in 'The Wonder', co-starring Florence Pugh.
