Lea Seydoux is in talks to be the latest star to board Denis Villeneuve’s Dune: Part Two, joining fellow franchise newcomers Florence Pugh, Christopher Walken and Austin Butler.
Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson and Javier Bardem are returning for the Legendary and Warner Bros. film, which resumes where Part One left off, with Paul Atreides (Chalamet) fighting alongside the Fremen to free the desert planet of Arrakis from the grips of House Harkonnen. Seydoux will play Lady Margot Fenring, who in Frank Herbert’s novel is an ally to Paul and his efforts to avenge House Atreides.
Shooting is set to begin this summer in Budapest, with Villeneuve directing from a script he co-wrote with Jon Spaihts. Mary Parent, Villeneuve, Cale Boyter, Tanya Lapointe and Patrick McCormick are producing the movie. The executive producers are Josh Grode, Herbert W. Gains, Brian Herbert,
