Australian film Furiosa - the prequel to Mad Max: Fury Road - won't be speeding into cinemas anytime soon.

The film's release date has been pushed back a year - to May 24, 2024, Warner Bros announced on Friday. It had originally been set for June 2023.

Director George Miller is returning to write and direct the film, which is being touted as Australia's biggest production ever.

The Queen's Gambit star Anya Taylor-Joy is set to play the title role, which Charlize Theron originated in Fury Road. Chris Hemsworth and Yahya Abdul-Mateen II also star.

Mad Max: Fury Road had a famously turbulent production, but out of the fires came a critical hit that went on to score 10 Oscar nominations, including for best picture and best director, winning six.

However, it was still in the red, even after raking in $US375 million ($A508 million).
