Dune: Jason Momoa In Talks To Join Cast For Denis Villeneuve’s Reboot

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Jason Momoa is in negotiations with Legendary to join the cast of Denis Villeneuve’s Dune reboot.

 

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.

 

If he joins, Jason Momoa (whose credits include Aquaman and Frontier) would be playing the role of Duncan Idaho, the swordsmaster who is fiercely loyal to the Atreides family.

 

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.

 

Jason Momoa could be joining a cast that includes Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Dave BautistaStellan SkarsgårdCharlotte RamplingOscar IsaacZendayaJavier Bardem and Josh Brolin.
