Jason Momoa to Join the Star-Studded Cast of DUNE Reboot

Jason Momoa is currently in talks to join Legendary's "Dune" reboot, according to Variety.

Momoa would join a cast that includes Timothee Chalamet, Javier Bardem, Rebecca Ferguson, Stellan Skarsgard, Dave Bautista, Josh Brolin, Oscar Isaac, and Zendaya.

Set in the distant future, "Dune" follows Paul Atreides (Chalamet), whose family assumes control of the desert planet Arrakis. As the only producer of a highly valuable resource, jurisdiction over Arrakis is contested among competing noble families. After Atreides is betrayed, he leads a rebellion to restore his family's reign.

Momoa will play Duncan Idaho, a swordmaster in the house of Atreides who is the right-hand man to Paul Atreides' father, played by Isaac.

Denis Villeneuve will direct the reboot, from a script he co-wrote with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts.

The film will be produced by Villeneuve, Mary Parent, and Cale Boyter. Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt, Thomas Tull, and Kim Herbert will serve as executive producers and Kevin J. Anderson will act as a creative consultant.

Momoa is best known for starring as the title character in "Aquaman," which has grossed more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office. He is currently filming the Apple sci-fi series "See."
