Dune: Dave Bautista Joins Cast For Denis Villeneuve’s Reboot

Variety is exclusively reporting that Dave Bautista will be starring opposite Timothée Chalamet and Rebecca Ferguson in Legendary’s reboot of Dune, which is being directed by Denis Villeneuve.

 

Dune is set in the distant future and follows Paul Atreides, whose family assumes control of the desert planet Arrakis. As the only producer of a highly valuable resource, jurisdiction over Arrakis is contested among competing noble families. After Paul and his family are betrayed, the story explores themes of politics, religion, and man’s relationship with nature, as Paul leads a rebellion to restore his family’s reign.

 

Dave Bautista (whose credits include Hotel Artemis and Avengers: Infinity War) will be playing the role of “Beast” Rabban, the sadistic nephew of a baron who oversees Arrakis.

 

Denis Villeneuve is also co-writing the script with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts. Villeneuve will also serve as producer on the project alongside Mary Parent and Cale Boyter, while Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt, Thomas Tull and Kim Herbert will serve as executive producers.
