It was just a couple of weeks ago that eagle eyed tabloid types spotted model-turned-actress Rosie Huntington-Whitely flying in to meet director George Miller, and it looks like that conversation went well, as she's set to star in yet another blockbuster after Michael Bay debuted her in "Transformers: Dark Of The Moon."
Deadline confirms that the actress has joined "Fury Road" where she'll be hanging out with Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron and fellow supermodel Abby Lee Kershaw on the franchise reboot/sequel/continuation/whatever. Exact plot details are still under wraps, but the film has been said to be the start of a potential new trilogy. Huntington-Whitely will be taking a role alongside Kershaw as one of the Five Wives, a convoy of women who are apparently being chased by the bad guys in the movie before Bronson/Bane presumably steps in to save the day.
Production on the long delayed film is finally set to get underway in July in Namibia. Curiously, there is no release date set for "Fury Road" just yet, but perhaps after seeing the movie delayed and shifted countless times, with casting starting and stopping and starting all over again, Warner Bros. don't want to jinx anything at this point.
