MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - FALLOUT Star Rebecca Ferguson In Talks For A Lead Role In Denis Villeneuve's DUNE

Following the news that Call Me By Your Name actor Timothée Chalamet would play Paul Atreides In Denis Villeneuve's Dune, reports are coming in that Rebecca Ferguson is in talks to play Lady Jessica...

Big news for fans of Frank Herbert's seminal sci-fi novels here, as THR reports that Mission: Impossible - Fallout star Rebecca Ferguson is in negotiations to star opposite Timothee Chalamet in Denis Villeneuve's Dune as Paul Atreides' mother, Lady Jessica.

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.
