Reports broke today that Nicholas Hoult along with 3 others are nearing contracts to star in "Fury Road." Hoult who has previously been seen in last year's "A Single Man," will play Nux, a character that is apart of a convoy trying to escape a maniac gang. Joining Hoult are Zoe Kravitz, Teresa Palmer and Adelaide Clemens. Zoe Kravtiz will play a character named Five Wives, while the rest of the cast's characters are being kept under wraps.

The new cast additions join Tom Hardy playing Max and Charlize Theron who will play the female lead. It is not known whether Theron's character will be good or bad. As previously reported, "Fury Road" will take place shortly after Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome and is set to begin production this summer in New South Whales. The sequel was written by series creator George Miller, who will also direct on a budget nearing $100 million.
