Also reportedly in discussions for the sequel is Austin Butler, with Deadline reporting that the “Elvis” star is up for the role of wicked Feyd-Rautha (portrayed by rocker Sting in David Lynch’s 1984 “Dune” movie). As the outlet points out, Feyd-Rautha is the nephew and heir of 600-pound villain Baron Vladimir Harkonnen (portrayed by Stellan Skarsgård) and is described as being “as similarly cruel, treacherous and cunning as his uncle.”

Director Denis Villeneuve, who also produced and wrote the screenplay, is confirmed to return for the sequel, with production set to begin in the fall with a projected release date of Oct. 2023.

The first “Dune” movie, despite debuting simultaneously on HBO Max, raked in an impressive $400 million at the box office worldwide.
