Academy Award-winning actress Charlize Theron has a ‘oonster’ new role. The stunning South African has signed on for a fourth installment of the ‘oad Max’ film series, in which Aussie star Mel Gibson made his name playing an apocalyptic road warrior.

The movie, titled ‘oad Max: Fury Road’ starts  shooting in Australia next August, although there’s no word on whether new dad Mel will return. (He last starred in 1985’s ‘oad Max: Beyond Thunderdome’.)
