It seems like it was only earlier today that I was writing about George Miller and his Mad Max sequel… oh waitaminute, it was only… et cetera, et cetera.
According to (!) Jay Baruchel, Teresa Palmer has the prize part of “main chick” in Mad Max 4: Fury Road – so, move over Charlize, at least into the position of “not so main chick”. Baruchel was speaking to press at the Dreamworks PR launch of How to Train Your Dragon, which features vocal turns from both Baruchel and Palmer. The Herald Sun have the full story, though no further details on the Mad Max role are given.
Meanwhile, Movieline got the scoop that Miller has also cast Matt Damon and Brad Pitt. How’s that for some starpower? But hold your horses – he hasn’t cast them in the Mad Max sequel. Instead, he’s given them voice roles in his second Happy Feet picture. Movieline know nothing of the specifics – heck, the guys might not even be playing penguins for all they know- but they’ve already been recording for the film this week. I’m visualising… a narwhal and an arctic cod, what about you?
