Huntington-Whiteley Set For Fury Road
She'll join the new Mad Max

Huntington-Whiteley Set For Fury Road

After years of false starts, casting shifts and weather problems, George Miller is finally set to gun the engine on Mad Max: Fury Road. And someone new will be heading to Namibia to shoot next month (assuming it really goes ahead this time), with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley aboard.

The model-turned-actress (stop rolling your eyes at that last part) got her start gawking at / running away from giant robots in Transformers: Dark Of The Moon, and while we doubt she’ll be called upon to do too much heavy lifting, acting-wise (when you have Oscar winner Charlize Theron as your female lead, you’re sorted), she’s playing one of the Five Wives, part of a convoy of women being chased down by the villains of the piece before Tom Hardy’s Max helps out. We guess that's the story anyway; plot details are still largely secret as of right now.

But with Hardy and Theron locked in, and Abbey Lee Kershaw, Richard Norton, Zoe Kravitz and possibly Nicholas Hoult all aboard, Fury Road will start in July. There’s no word on when it’ll hit cinemas, though.

RE: What the hell?
Well it sounds like it may be a small role at least. More

What the hell?
Why this woman? My armpit has more acting ability, and there are much better looking women, if she is there just for some eye candy. More

Mmm, she's beautiful...but Fury Road is taking so long to reach cinemas, she'll probably be an old crone by the time it comes out. More

Hardy and RHW? This film will be lip-tastic!   Not to mention shite. More

RE: Were there no actresses available?
L: dannyfletch I think if you recall the original Mad Max movies or even bother to watch them you will notice that the acting isn't exactly oscar worthy anyway! It's all about the action! rue, but the action was the best part of Transformers 3 and she blew donkeys in that. Not literally, of course. Unfortunately. More

Hardy's contract makes Dr Faustus' look like a dream
How can something so delayed, and now with the 'talent' of Rosie Fearnley-Whittingstall being added, be anything other than rubbish. I'm just glad that Hardy has got some pure quality coming out inbetween so we weren't ladened with the double whammy of This Means War and Fury Road. Hopefully his performance in Batman alone will get him thorough this mire. More

It's been too long!
Hopefully Tom Hardy will stay attached to play Max as I'm sure he will be excellent! Let's also hope that George Miller hasn't gone soft in his old age and can equal that of his excellent Road Warrior! And while Whiteley certainly isn't what I would call an actress at least she's eye candy! More
