Dune 2 Has Just Cast Christopher Walken In A Major Role

Shortly after Denis Villeneuve’s Dune opened in theaters and on HBO Max, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures decided to move forward with Dune 2, a.k.a. Dune: Part Two. In other words, Villeneuve will get to complete his adaptation of Frank Herbert’s original novel, as opposed to the overall story being left hanging halfway through. With this next Dune movie will come some new faces, among which will be Christopher Walken as Emperor Shaddam IV.

As shared by THR, Christopher Walken has signed on to be part of Dune 2’s ensemble cast. He’s the third newcomer who’s been revealed for the follow-up movie so far, as Black Widow’s Florence Pugh is reportedly attached to play Princess Irulan, the Emperor’s daughter, while Elvis’ Austin Butler is on deck as Feyd-Rautha, Baron Harkonnen’s younger nephew.
