Congrats to the divinely talented and stunningly beautiful Megan Gale, the Aussie supermodel cum actress who turned heads with her amusing turn in Pete Helliar’s “I Love You Too” a couple of years back, who has been cast in George Miller’s long-awaited revhead blockbuster “Mad Max Fury Road”.
It’s a real win for Gale, considering she missed out on getting to work with Miller on the big-budget superhero flick “Justice League” a couple of years back. The heart-pausing bombshell has been itching for another big-time jaunt in celluloid-land for quite some time – invisible jet or no invisible jet. That “Justice League” movie, in which Gale was set to play lassoing Wonder Woman, was cancelled at the eleventh hour. Another of that film’s attached actors, Hugh Keays-Byrne (‘Martian Manhunter’) is also in “Fury Road”.
Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy headline “Mad Max Fury Road”, which began principal photography on July 9. The reboot of the ‘Mad Max’ franchise also stars bodybuilder Nathan Jones (“Troy”) as Rictus Erecetus, Nicholas Hoult from “X-Men : First Class” as Nux, Keays-Byrne (“Mad Max”) as Immortan Joe, and Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keough, and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley as ‘the wives’.
Also onboard are Supermodel Abbey Lee Kershaw, playing The Dag'; Courtney Eaton has been cast as Fragile; Josh Helman (TV’s “The Pacific”, “Jack Reacher”) is Silt; Jennifer Hagan (“The Night We Called It A Day”) is Miss Giddy; and musician iOTA (is a Top 40-ready theme song on the cards!?) is Coma-Doof Warrior.
A number of Aussie actors, aside from the aforementioned Ms Gale, are also in the film, they include “All Saints” alum John Howard, Angus Sampson (“Insidious”), Gillian Jones (TV’s “Packed to the Rafters”), Richard Carter (“Happy Feet”, “Hating Alison Ashley”), Joy Smithers (TV’s “Home & Away”), Melissa Jaffer (“Farscape”) and Melita Jurisic (TV’s “Something in the Air”).
Aussie showbiz legend Bert Newton was also originally attached to play a role, but dropped out due to the shift in filming locale to Namibia.
“Mad Max Fury Road” sees Mad Max (Hardy) caught up with a group of people fleeing across the Wasteland in a War Rig driven by the imperator Furiosa (Theron). A battle erupts on the road in front of them over the course of the film as they attempt to push the rig to safer terrain.
