Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron are already set as the leads in Mad Max 4, so all we have to do is wait for the rest of the cast to fall into place. According to THR, that’s exactly what’s happening as not one, not two, but four new actors are coming on board to star in the film. Nicholas Hoult, Zoe Kravitz, Teresa Palmer, and Adelaide Clemens are in various stages of negotiations to tackle roles in the long awaited sequel.
It’s hard to imagine that the little kid from About a Boy grew up to be a strikingly handsome young man. He appeared as the oversexed Tony in the BBC series “Skins,” starred in the indie drama A Single Man, and even has a role in this year’s Clash of the Titans. Now he’ll appear in Mad Max as a character named Nux. The plot for the film doesn’t tell us a lot about him or anyone else aside from the fact that it takes place shortly after the events in Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.
Zoe Kravitz’s character is called Five Wives, and she’ll be in a convoy along with Palmer and Clemens that’s being chased down by some bad guys. It just wouldn’t be a Mad Max movie without a violent chase thrown in there. I’m interested in seeing how all these young kids will be related to the title character. What’s their real purpose?
What do you think about Hoult, Kravitz, Palmer, and Clemens joining Mad Max 4?
