The decision to join the cast of 'Mad Max: 'Fury Road' -- the latest entry in the vaunted film franchise -- was easy for Oscar winner Charlize Theron.

"George Miller is THAT for me," Theron told Moviefone at Wednesday's premiere of her new drama, 'The Road,' at AFI Fest in Hollywood. "He is amazing. I am really looking forward working with him."

Miller is the writer/director of the 'Mad Max' movie series. Theron has signed on to 'Fury Road,' the long-awaited sequel to 1985's 'Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome,' as has English actor Tom Hardy in Mel Gibson's iconic role.
