Swift casting followed. Nicholas Hoult, so impressive in A Single Man, and so woefully underused in Clash of the Titans joined the film, and Riley Keough jumped on board to join Hardy and the film’s female lead, Charlize Theron.
Little is known about the role Theron will play in the film, so any kind of detail is of interest and there’s a new report from MovieHole who picked up a quote from the ABC website, concerning Annabelle Williams, an Australian Paralympic medal winner, who has been cast as a stunt double in Miller’s film.
Here’s what ABC Sport had to say,
“I got a phone call from one of the people at [the production company] and they said it’s got a $200 million budget. My mum was sitting there and we were just like ‘What?'”
“Then they said that the lead actress was Charlize Theron and I nearly died.
“And then I thought to myself the resemblance (between Theron and myself) is striking.
She laughed, adding: “Not at all. And she’s about a foot taller than me.”
In the film, Theron’s character will have part of one arm missing. Williams will fill in for the Academy Award-winner during a fight scene.
“They are going to film me from a very long distance for the fighting so that they don’t have to CGI out her arm.
“I will be her, but just not [in] the face.
So, Theron is an amputee who gets into a few scrapes along the (fury) road. There’s still no update to the potential back-to-back filming of this film and a sequel but with filming due to start soon it’ll take a trailer, rather than piecemeal news items to get people really interested.
