Elvis Presley’s granddaughter Riley Keough is set to star in the next Mad Max movie.

The 21-year-old model, who is the daughter of Lisa Marie Presley, has starred in a handful of films, including The Runaways opposite Kristen Stewart and Dakota Fanning.

And the beauty is set to boost her acting portfolio with a role in the latest installment of the series, Mad Max 4: Fury Road – which is set to start filming in Australia next year.

Keough will play one of the Five Wives – a group of women Max has to save, according to the Associated Press.

The part made famous by Mel Gibson will be played by Inception star Tom Hardy.
