AQUAMAN Star Jason Momoa Joins Denis Villeneuve's DUNE As Duncan Idaho

Denis Villeneuve's upcoming Dune reboot continues to add to its already impressive cast with another big name in Aquaman star Jason Momoa, who is in talks to star as the fierce swordsmaster, Duncan Idaho.

Multiple sources are reporting that Jason Momoa (Aquaman) is in early talks to join Legendary's upcoming film adaptation of Frank Herbert's classic sci-fi novel, Dune, as the mighty swordsmaster Duncan Idaho, a fan-favorite character that's fiercely loyal to the Atreides family. 

Academy Award-nominee Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049; Arrival; Sicario) is directing the highly-ambitious feature with a script he co-wrote alongside Eric Roth (A Star Is Born) and Jon Spaihts (The Mummy).

Momoa joins an all-star cast that features Academy Award-nominee Timothee Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name) in the lead role of Paul Atreides. Joining them will be Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible - Fallout), Dave Bautista (Avengers: Infinity War), Stellan Skarsgård (Avengers: Age of Ultron), Academy Award-nominee Charlotte Rampling (Red Sparrow), Golden Globe-winner Oscar Isaac (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse), Zendaya (Spider-Man: Far From Home), Academy Award-winner Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men), and Academy Award-nominee Josh Brolin (Avengers: Endgame). 

Production is expected to begin this spring with shooting schedules already set for Budapest and Jordan.
