The Dune Reboot Casts Another Big Name; Here's The Full Cast So Far
Jason Momoa is in talks to join the film.
The cast for the upcoming Dune reboot just keeps getting better and better. Variety reports today that Game of Thrones and Aquaman star Jason Momoa is in negotiations to play a role in the movie, which already includes some huge names from Hollywood.
The movie's cast already includes all of these big names, including those said to be in talks:
- Timothee Chalamet
- Javier Bardem
- Rebecca Ferguson
- Stellan Skarsgard
- Josh Brolin
- Oscar Isaac
- Dave Bautista
According to Variety, Momoa, should he officially sign on to the Dune reboot, will play the character Duncan Idaho. He's the second-in-command to the character played by Isaac, who is portraying Chalamet's father.
The movie is based on the Frank Herbert 1965 novel. David Lynch directed the first Dune movie in 1984; it was not a commercial success but it gained a cult reputation. A mini-series for TV was produced in the early 2000s on the Syfy channel.
Director Denis Villeneuve, who directed Blade Runner 2014, Sicario, and Arrival, co-wrote the script for the new Dune with Eric Roth (A Star Is Born, Forrest Gump) and Jon Spaihts (Prometheus).
No release date has been announced as of yet for the new Dune. Given its cast, director, and writing team, we're very excited to see how the new Dune reboot comes together. Keep checking back with GameSpot for the latest.
