Another big name is in line to join Denis Villeneuve's upcoming adaptation of Frank Herbert's sci-fi classic, Dune. Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi is in negotiations to play Duke Leto Atreides...

As the cast of Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve's Dune reboot continues to grow, the latest addition is a highly-in demand actor from a diffrent galaxy far, far away.

According to Variety, Oscar Isaac (Star Wars, X-Men: Apocalypse) is in talks to play the father of Timothee Chalamet's character, Duke Leto Atreides. The movie will also star Rebecca Ferguson, Stellan Skarsgard, Dave Bautista and Charlotte Rampling

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.
