“Dune 2″: The role of Austin Butler in the film by Denis Villeneuve is confirmed

Shortly after learning that Christopher Walken was joining the cast of “Dunes 2″, Austin Butler has also just confirmed his next role in the film starring Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya.

In an interview for “The New York Times,” the actor noted that he began intense knife-fighting training to play Feyd-Rautha in the second part of director Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation.

Feyd-Rautha is the favored son of Baron Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgard), leader of the rival house of House Atreides. He is an important character in the film, since he becomes the main enemy of Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet).

The new production, which adapts the second half of Frank Herbert’s iconic 1965 science fiction novel, will also feature other characters such as Florence Pugh (Little Women and Black Widow) in the role of Princess Irulan Corrino.

Villeneuve has confirmed that the script for “Dune 2” is complete. The film will begin filming in the second half of the year and its release date is scheduled for October 20, 2023.
