Lea Seydoux Joins The Cast Of Denis Villeneuve's DUNE: PART 2 As Lady Margot Fenring

With production set to commence on Denis Villeneuve's Dune sequel next month, the director has added another cast member to his already very impressive ensemble in the form of Lea Seydoux...

Last we heard, Dune: Part 2 was scheduled to begin shooting next month, and director Denis Villeneuve is still in the process of adding a few supporting players to his already very impressive cast.

The latest to join the sprawling ensemble is No Time To Die star Lea Seydoux, who is coming off wide critical acclaim for her performance in David Cronenberg's divisive sci-fi drama Crimes of the Future. According to Deadline's report, the French actress is set to play Lady Margot.

In Frank Herbert's novels, Lady Margot Fenring was the scheming Bene Gesserit wife of the Mentat Count Hasimir Fenring. The character only had a fairly minor part to play in the first book, so we're expecting Seydoux's role to be expanded for the purposes of Villeneuve's sequel.

DUNE Review: Denis Villeneuve's Otherworldly Tour De Force Is Jaw-Dropping Cinema

A recently released synopsis reads, “Part Two will focus on Paul assembling a massive army of Fremen to combat the ruthless Harkonnen, as he essentially becomes a mythical messiah figure to the inhabitants of Arrakis.”

The studio recently confirmed that Florence Pugh (Black Widow) is locked in as the Emperor's daughter Princess Irulan, with Austin Butler (Elvis) set to play the evil Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen. The legendary Christopher Walken has also been cast as The Emperor of the Known Universe (Padishah Emperor Shaddam IV of House Corrino to give him his full title).

They join returning cast members Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, and Dave Bautista.

Dune: Part 2 is set to hit theaters on Oct. 20, 2023, with production scheduled to commence in Budapest on July 18.
