Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is building on her budding film career by joining the new Mad Max movie.

The model-turned-actress - who got her start in Hollywood when she appeared in the third Transformers movie last year - has been cast as one of the five wives in Mad Max: Fury Road, reports Deadline.

She will be sharing the screen with Charlize Theron and Tom Hardy in the action flick, with Tom taking over from Mel Gibson in the role of Max.

It has been reported that Zoe Kravitz, Riley Keogh and Adelaide Clemens have also been cast as three of the five wives, with the fifth yet to be announced.

The fourth Mad Max film comes 27 years since the last movie, Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.
