The cast and crew of Legendary Entertainment’s “Dune” reboot continue to take shape. Keep reading Nexter.org to know who was already announced to play in the film.

What we know so far

As we already know, “Arrival” and “Blade Runner 2049” director Denis Villeneuve officially announced in he’s going to make a legendary movie reboot of “Dune” that will be released in nearly two years. “Dune will probably take two years to make. The goal is to make two films, maybe more,” he said.

The original Dune movie was released in 1984 and was written and directed by David Lynch. It starred Kyle MacLachlan as a leader in the battle over the desert planet Arrakis – the only source of a material (“the spice”) that allows for space travel.

The original Dune novel by Frank Herbert was published in 1965 and its influence continues to be felt across the sci-fi genre today. Villeneuve has admitted it was one of the pinnacle sci-fi works that made him want to work in the genre to begin with and once called it his “longstanding dream” to adapt the novel to the big screen.

Herbert’s novel blends sci-fi and politics in fascinating ways, much like Villeneuve has in his previous directorial efforts, sci-fi or not.

So here’s what we know so far about the “Dune” cast.

 Timothée Chalamet

Timothée Chalamet is widely famous for Oscar-nominated turn in “Call Me by Your Name”. News broke in July Villeneuve is bringing Chalamet on board to play the lead, Paul Atreides.

The actor compared Villeneuve tackling “Dune” to Christopher Nolan tackling “The Dark Knight,” which made landing a part in “Dune” a top priority.
