Riley Keough ‘In Talks’ To Join The Cast Of ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’

Last we heard, production was delayed on George Miller’s upcoming “Mad Max” flick, “Fury Road.” The sort-of reboot/sort-of sequel stars Tom Hardy as the titular badass. He’s joined by a growing cast that already includes Zoe Kravitz, Teresa Palmer, Adelaide Clemens, Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult.

Now, The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Riley Keough is in talks to join the cast as one of the Five Wives, a group of women (Kravitz, Palmer and Clemens being three of them) whom Hardy’s Max must protect. Keough, who debuted last year playing Marie Currie in the Kristen Stewart/Dakota Fanning-starring Runaways biopic “The Runaways,” also happens to be the granddaughter of Elvis Presley.

It’s great to see the cast filling out. THR also reports that production should get going again “early next year.” So good news all around for fans of dystopian future-worlds.
