Mad Max: Fury Road – Nicholas Hoult joins cast

A Single Man star Nicholas Hoult is the latest addition to the cast of George Miller’s forthcoming Mad Max sequel, Mad Max: Fury Road. Also joining the cast are Zoe Kravitz, Adelaide Clemens and Teresa Palmer.

The Hollywood Reporter has it on record that events in the new movie will take place shortly after those of 1985’s Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome. This would go some way to explaining the absense of Mel Gibson as he would now be too old for a convincing timeline.

Hoult is set to play Nux, and will team up with existing stars Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy when shooting starts in Australia this summer.
