Denis Villeneuve's DUNE Adds Legendary Actress Charlotte Rampling As The Reverend Mother Mohiam

As the cast of Denis Villeneuve's adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune continues to grow, the latest addition is Academy Award-nominated British actress Charlotte Rampling, who'll play The Reverend Mother...

The already impressive cast of Denis Villeneuve's highly-anticipated adaptation of Dune has gained another very exciting addition, as the legendary Charlotte Rampling (Angel Heart, 45, Red Sparrow) has signed on to play the duplicitous Reverend Mother Mohiam.

In Frank Herbert's novels, The Reverend Mother is a Bene Gesserit "witch" with the power of foresight. THR's report describes this big-screen take on the character as "the emperor’s truthsayer, a person who can divine intentions, suss out lies and manipulate people's emotional states." Rampling joins previously announced cast members Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Dave Bautista and Stellan Skarsgard.

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.
