Dune Remake Casts Main Roles!
Collider is reporting that multiple sources confirm Zendaya is in negotiations to star in Denis Villeneuve's Dune remake! The movie already cast such stars as Timothee Chalamet as the hero Paul Atreides, Rebecca Ferguson as his mother Jessica, and Oscar Isaac as his father Duke Leto. Also starring are Stellan Skarsgård as Vladimir Harkonnen, Dave Bautista as Glossu Rabban, and Charlotte Rampling as Reverend Mother Mohiam. More casting news will come soon. Academy Award nominated cinematographer Greig Fraser has signed onto the film. He's best known for his work on Snow White & the Huntsman, Zero Dark Thirty, Lion, Rogue One A Star Wars Story, and last year's Vice.
Villeneuve co-wrote the script himself along with Oscar-winner Eric Roth (Forrest Gump) and Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). Villeneuve also executive produces the Legendary project with Mary Parent and Cale Boyter, as well as Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt, Thomas Tull, and Kim Herbert. Kevin J. Anderson will serve as a creative consultant on the project. This film will be the first part in the two-part adaptation of Frank Herbert's 1965 science fiction novel which was adapted to the big screen once before in David Lynch's 1984 version of the epic tale. The film has no release date, but is expected to be released sometime in 2020.
