Washington: Swedish actor Rebecca Ferguson is in talks to join Timothee Chalamet in ‘Dune’ reboot.
Directed by ‘Blade Runner 2049’ and ‘Prisoners’ director Denis Villeneuve, the film is based on Frank Herbert’s iconic novel and is penned by Eric Roth. Herbert will be serving as one of the executive producers.
‘Dune’, set in the future, revolves around Paul Atreides (lead character), whose family assumes control of the desert planet ‘Arrakis’ and who later fights to restore his family’s reign over the region. The story is a combination of themes like politics, religion, and man’s relationship with nature, reported Variety.
Ferguson’s past credits include ‘Mission: Impossible – Fallout’, ‘The Kid Who Would Be King’, ‘The Shining’ and the latest ‘Men in Black’.
