23 Jun – French actress Léa Seydoux has been cast in the upcoming second chapter of Denis Villeneuve's "Dune".
According to Deadline, the actress, most known internationally for her James Bond role as Madeleine Swann in "Spectre" and "No Time To Die", will play the role of Lady Margot.
In Frank Herbert's novel of the same name, Lady Margot is a long-standing servant of the Sisterhood.
The upcoming movie has cast "Elvis" star Austin Butler in the role of Feyd-Rautha, as well as two other new addition, Florence Pugh and Christopher Walken.
Other original stars including lead actors Timothee Chalamet and Zendaya will also be returning.
In a previous interview, Villanueve stated, "I cannot say nothing about the movie – I don't like to talk about projects as I am doing them – but it's probably going to be the biggest challenge of my career, again, because it's even more complex than Part One."
In addition to the sequel, HBO Max is also developing a spinoff series called "Dune: The Sisterhood".
