Well, the cast for this just keeps on getting better and better.

Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Arrivial, Blade Runner 2049) is working on a new adaptation of DuneLegendary acquired film and TV rights to the Frank Herbert novels Dune in 2016 and they plan on making multiple films.

Josh Brolin (Avengers: Infinity War, No Country For Old Men) has joined the cast. He will be playing Gurney Halleck, who was the character played by Patrick Stewart in David Lynch’s 1984 adaptation.

Set in the distant future amidst a feudal interstellar society in which noble houses, in control of individual planets, owe allegiance to the Padishah Emperor, Dune tells the story of young Paul Atreides, whose noble family accepts the stewardship of the desert planet Arrakis. As this planet is the only source of the oracular spice melange, the most important and valuable substance in the universe, control of Arrakis is a coveted—and dangerous—undertaking. The story explores the multi-layered interactions of politics, religion, ecology, technology, and human emotion, as the factions of the Empire confront each other in a struggle for the control of Arrakis and its spice.

Here is the current cast list:

  • Timothée Chalamet – Paul Atreides
  • Rebecca Ferguson – Lady Jessica
  • Oscar Isaac – Duke Leto Atreides
  • Josh Brolin – Gurney Halleck
  • Charlotte Rampling – Reverend Mother Mohiam
  • Zendaya – Chani
  • Javier Bardem – Stilgar
  • Dave Bautista – Glossu ‘Beast’ Rabban
  • Stellan Skarsgård – Baron Harkonnen

I am definitely looking forward to this one.
