Nicholas Hoult (A Single Man, upcoming Clash of the Titans) has joined the cast of George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road, while Zoe Kravitz, Adelaide Clemens and the previously-reported Teresa Palmer are also in talks to come on board.
The Hollywood Reporter says the new movie is set a short while after the story detailed in 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome which keeps Mad Max relatively young.
Hoult’s character is named Nux. Kravitz, whose character’s name is Five Wives, Palmer and Clemens are in a convoy being chased by bad guys.
Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy are starring in the film which Warner Bros. will start shooting in Australia this summer.
