Dune: Half Two — The ReDu (speculative title) continues to suck prestigious actors into its drive discipline like some form of science-fiction planet. Deadline reports that Léa Seydoux, who was most not too long ago seen doing future crimes, has been forged as Girl Margot, a member of the Sisterhood.
In different 2une casting information, Christopher Walken already rocks the Futurama Mom look, so the actor is completely match to play essentially the most highly effective ruler within the galaxy. Selection reports that Walken has been forged as Shaddam IV of Home Corrino, Emperor of the Recognized Universe. Whereas the character didn’t seem in Denis Villeneuve’s first Dune movie, he was the catalyst that set off all of its ensuing motion and carnage by handing over management of Arrakis to Home Atreides. What this actually means is that he might be enjoying Florence Pugh’s dad, in order that’s one thing for Movie Twitter to speak about till October 2023.
Feyd-Rautha will seem within the movie, and Deadline reports that Austin Butler is in negotiations to play him. The factor about Sting’s efficiency as spiky-headed Harkonnen baddie Feyd-Rautha in 1984’s Dune is it’s form of unimaginable to observe Sting’s efficiency as Feyd-Rautha in 1984’s Dune. It’s simply so weirdly attractive (okay, Bowie’s Goblin King in Labyrinth was in a position to observe it, however that’s it). I assumed that the character wasn’t in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, as a result of Sting was busy and he’s 70. It seems the following rival whom Timothée Chalamet has to face might be performed by an Elvis impersonator, which is technically Butler’s job description now.
However right here’s the place issues get spice-y. New York Times reporter Kyle Buchanan tweeted a hyperlink to the Deadline article and added that “they also looked at Harry Styles and Tye Sheridan for this role…” That ellipsis has us going hmm … in a giant manner. Did Villeneuve see Types’s efficiency in Eternals and go, “Scrap it”? Did he watch The Card Counter and say, “That’s quite enough family vengeance from Tye Sheridan, thanks”?
Elsewhere within the Duneiverse, Florence Pugh is in negotiations to play Princess Irulan Corrino, eldest daughter of the Emperor and potential romantic rival to Zendaya. (They could contractually have to vary the spelling of the film to Dughne: Half Twugh.)
