Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz & More Join Mad Max: Fury Road

January 27, 2010

Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Teresa Palmer

It's always a nice surprise when an actor who had a young feature film debut goes almost unseen for a few years and then comes back as a mature on-screen talent. Such is the case with Nicholas Hoult who saw his on-screen debut opposite Hugh Grant in About a Boy, but in the past couple years has shown a much more adult side starring in the risque British series "Skins" and also giving a BAFTA nominated performance in A Single Man. In addition to starring in the forthcoming Clash of the Titans, Hoult, along with Zoe Kravitz, Teresa Palmer and Adelaide Clemens, are all in negotiations to co-star in Mad Max: Fury Road.

Very little is known about the roles other than Hoult's character is named Nux; Kravitz character is called Five Wives and Palmer and Clemens are in a convoy being chased by bad guys. Mad Max: Fury Road, which is rumored to be a 3-D blend of live-action and animation, marks our return to the post-apocalyptic world last seen 25 years ago. With George Miller returning to direct this sequel in the franchise he started back in the 70's, this will be a real test of the potential of reboots of decades old franchises that haven't been kept alive in other media forms like comics. We'll be keeping our eye out for more developments, so stay tuned.

Hoult can carry a film About a Boy was pretty good movie. I'm not sure about the rest of the cast but we'll see.

Bloody hell, my confidence is dropping in this project, not enough Aussies.

Are any Australians AT ALL in this film? What is with the influx of fucking migrants? Is there no decent Aussie talent still there in Australia?
