<i>Mad Max</i> Recruits Riley Keough

Riley Keough, the granddaughter of Elvis Presley, is taking a walk down the Fury Road.

The Runaways actress will star in the upcoming fourth Mad Max film as one of the "Five Wives," a group of women that Mad Max (Tom Hardy) has to protect from the film's unidentified antagonists. Teresa Palmer, Adelaide Clemens and Zoe Kravitz play three of the other wives, with the fifth currently unknown. Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult round out the cast.

Plot details are currently under wraps for the fourth Mad Max, though it's believed to take place a short time after Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome, the third film in the series. In other words, this is a direct sequel, not a reboot of the franchise formerly represented by embattled actor Mel Gibson.

Shooting is expected to begin early next year with Hardy in the title role.
