It seems that Mad Max 4: Fury Road has been in and out of development limbo for forever now, so it’s nice to hear any news at all about the movie. Director George Miller has been pursuing the project for 10 years and it doesn’t look much closer to filming, but there is a new actress on board— Australian super model Abbey Lee Kershaw.
According to sources, Kershaw is to take on a role previously filled by Teresa Palmer, who dropped out due to the constant delays. Her character in the film is apparently a sexy lady in a cage (a welcome addition to any film) who is part of a caravan of sexy lady wives who get chased around by the bad guys. If the film actually begins shooting, this will be Kershaw’s first big-screen appearance.
Other casting choices already in place consist of Tom Hardy replacing Mel Gibson as Max (thank God) and Charlize Theron playing the role of a bad-ass one-armed warrior woman.
If all goes to plan, shooting should start in Namibia later this summer.
