CALL ME BY YOUR NAME Star Timothée Chalamet In Talks To Play Paul Atreides In Denis Villeneuve's DUNE

Big news for fans of Frank Herbert's seminal sci-fi novels here, as it's been announced that Oscar-nominated Call Me By Your Name actor Timothée Chalamet is in final talks to play the lead role in Dune...

We had been led to believe that Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve's Dune adaptation was still a long way off, but that doesn't appear to be the case if casting is already underway.

According to Deadline, Academy Award-nominated Call Me By Your Name star Timothée Chalamet is in final negotiations to play the saga's main character, Paul "Muad'Dib" Atreides.

For those unfamiliar with the source material, Dune follows the Atreides family as they relocate to the desolate planet of Arrakis to assume control of the production of the most valuable resource in the galaxy, the Spice Melange. Unfortunately, an act of treachery soon makes an outcast of The Duke Atreides' youngest son Paul, and he must accept his destiny as a powerful prophet of the Arrakis natives known as The Fremen.

There have been several different adaptions of Dune over the years, the most famous (or infamous, depending on your perspective) is David Lynch's ambitious, but flawed 1984 movie starring Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Kyle MacLachlan. This latest take will be produced by Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, and Cale Boyter, with Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt, and Kim Herbert serving as executive producers.
