French star Léa Seydoux is the latest addition to the cast of the highly anticipated Dune: Part Two from filmmaker Denis Villeneuve. Seydoux, who has films like Blue Is The Warmest Color, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Midnight In Paris and No Time To Die under her belt, will star as Lady Margot in the sequel, Variety reported.

Dune: Part One, which released in October 2021 to universal acclaim, was based on author Frank Herbert’s seminal 1965 novel.

It followed the story of Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet), a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his comprehension, who must travel to Arrakis, the most dangerous planet in the universe to secure the future of his family and his people. .

Dune: Part Two will pick up where Part One left off, with Atreides fighting alongside the Fremen to free the desert planet of Arrakis from the clutches of House of Harkonnen.

In Herbert’s novel, Lady Margot is a vital ally of Paul Atreides in his war against the Harkonnens.

The directors have yet to cast an actor for the role of Count Fenring, who is Lady Margot’s husband.

Chalamet along with his co-stars Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgard and Dave Bautista return for the sequel.

Seydoux joins fellow newcomers Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan, Austin Butler and veteran actor Christopher Walken in the sequel.

Walken will play Emperor Padishah Shaddam IV, with Pugh and Butler playing the roles of Princess Irulan, the Emperor’s daughter, and Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen, the heir apparent to the Harkonnen dynasty, respectively.

Dune Part 2 is set to begin production later this year and has a release date of October 20, 2023.

Jon Spaihts returns to co-write the screenplay with Villeneuve, who will direct and produce the sequel.

Seydoux recently starred alongside Viggo Mortensen and Kristen Stewart in director David Cronenberg’s Future Crimes.
