‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ Lands Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Transformers: Dark of the Moon star Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has joined the cast of Mad Max: Fury Road for director George Miller.

The actress will play one of the five wives held by Tom Hardy's Max Rockatansky. Zoë Kravitz and Riley Keough are portraying two of the other spouses. Charlize Theron, Teresa Palmer, Nicholas Hoult, and Adelaide Clemens also star.

Production is scheduled to begin next month in Africa. We reported last March that the director plans to shoot both Mad Max: Fury Road and the sequel, Mad Max: Furiosa, back-to-back.

Mad Max: Fury Road was released May 15th, 2015.

      She's not the best actress but in Transformers she had a likability to her. I think that she has potential.

            @thedude-abides@XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Not the best site, but damn does it have a wild bunch

              @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx I never know what's going on with this site to be quite honest. I was personally told by one of the admins to start a "missing images in the mw database" forum about a year ago for films that were missing their cover art, and for a while it was coming in handy, but for the past six months I feel like I've been posting links to the images for my own amusement.

              MW needs, like, a weekly newsletter article or something to keep us all in the loop of what's going on in terms of updates, etc., as well as providing a platform for questions/suggestions like the one you just posed, because my answer to that question is, I have no idea.

                That was months ago, by the way. Quite possibly a year ago, actually.

                  @thedude-abides -- Speaking of which, did I miss any updates concerning the new Face-Offs? I heard they were going to expand it, and potentially add actors/actresses to the mix.

                    @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Good points. Lol, that's what I wanted to say, but like you said, it's best not to be that guy :)

                        I like how the headline reads "Mad Max Lands Rosie." Clearly, after her magnificent debut in DOTM, she has become a highly coveted actress, lol.

                          @thedude-abides -- I think the latter is worse, mainly because the aforementioned mistake was ridiculous, but Ryan Reynolds is not a bad actor, and he more than proved that in "Buried". Jason Statham, however, is so-so. I watched him in an awesome movie, and he was quite possibly the only actor in the movie I wouldn't credit. He's not abysmal, but he's definitely not anything worthy. Quite average, if you ask me.

                          Oh, of course. You can only go so far with criticism when it comes to cinema/personal taste, so it's better to be grounded and realistic; accepting one's opinions, but not necessarily meriting it valid or worthy. Respect plays a primary role, otherwise, you'd turn into one of those "LOL YOU LIKE JASON STATHAM?!? HE SUCKS DICK LOL" kind of guys that gratify themselves at the sight of giant robots fighting/demolishing everything in their path.

                          Best not to go with the latter. ;)

                            @dan1 Gosling could run circles around anybody, lol. Seriously though, I don't know what's worse, him mistaking Gosling for Reynolds, or another guy I work with proclaiming Jason "Stamos" (Statham) as his favorite actor.

                            @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Lol. Yes, very blatantly stupid. I'll give him a pass b/c he's my friend, and because he, like a lot of people, thinks he knows more about movies than he actually does :)

                                  Aha! Really? Talk about blatant stupidity/bad taste!

                                      @XxNickTheFilmCriticXx Lol. Yeah, I don't know many people, much less a single female, who liked Drive. You have to maintain at least some semblance of movie knowledge to have enjoyed it, it being a genre film. Without prior knowledge of films like The Driver, Thief, and Le Samourai, or at least the awareness of certain of the film's influences such as the ones I alluded to, it's hard to enjoy Drive for what it is. "They didn't talk enough" isn't reason enough not to like it; that sort of existentialist character nature was part of the film's allure, in my opinion.

                                      One guy actually told me, "I didn't like the art of it. I was expecting it to be a Fast & Furious-type movie." And is if that sh*te opinion wasn't enough for me to disregard anything he had to say pertaining to the world of film from that point on, he proceeded to mistake Ryan Gosling for Ryan Reynolds. Yeah. Go figure.

                                        @bawnian-dexeus -- Oh, I know that. I'm just saying she treats it as if it's the worst movie of all-time, and she's seen "Troll 2", and "From Justin To Kelly". I'm in no way a fan of Transformers, by the way.
