Riley Keough Joining the Growing Cast of Mad Max: Fury Road
George Miller seems to be lining up some very pretty ladies for his next, new post-apocalyptic action movie. Heat Vision reports that Riley Keough, the 21-year-old hottie who's only claim to fame right now is being the granddaughter of Elvis Presley, has landed a role in George Miller's Mad Max: Fury Road. Keough was also recently cast in lesbian werewolf indie film Jack & Diane. Fury Road is supposed to star Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy as Mad Max, but Heat Vision says Keough is playing one of "Five Wives" along with Zoe Kravitz (The Brave One, Twelve) and Adelaide Clemens ("Love My Way", "All Saints"). Read on!
The trade article also mistakenly lists Teresa Palmer as another one of the "Five Wives," a group of women that Hardy as Mad Max must protect from bad guys, but we already know she is definitely not in the movie. So that makes three of them we know (Keough, Kravitz, Clemens) and two still uncast. We ran a big update on the new sequel from Tom Hardy himself in July, but word is that production has been delayed and we're still not sure when the start date is, but the release is still 2012. We don't know much about the plot, but it's interesting to see them revealing a little with the details about the "Five Wives" girls. Stay tuned for updates!
