Whoops. Out doing interviews at a special presentation by DreamWorks Animation the other day, actor Jay Baruchel revealed that his “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” co-star Teresa Palmer is joining the cast of George Miller’s “Mad Max: Fury Road” reports The Herald Sun.
Baruchel seemed excited the actress will join Tom Hardy, who’s playing the title character – “She gets to work with him, and she’s (going to be) doing ‘Mad Max 4’ with Miller. She’s the main chick in ‘Fury Road’. She’s going to be there for over a year. It’s really, really cool.”
Previous reports had Charlize Theron starring in the lead female role in the film, whether that’s still true is unsure – my last attempt to contact Miller’s reps about ‘Max’ wasn’t responded to.
Palmer was previously cast in Miller’s aborted “Justice League of America” film adaptation.
