‘Dune: Part 2’ has already found its princess Irulan. Last February, the rumor began to circulate that Denis Villeneuve was aiming very high in the casting for one of the most important characters of the sequel. Names like Anya Taylor-Joy, Sophie Turner, Sydney Sweeney, Julia Garner or Hunter Schafer sounded. FFinally, the actress who entered into negotiations to accompany Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya to Arrakis is Florence Pughwho was also on the supposed list of candidates.
As reported deadline, the producer has yet to confirm that the ‘Black Widow’ actress will play Princess Irulan Corrino, but that’s a given. Irulan is the eldest daughter of Padisha Emperor Shaddam Corrino IV, and who will greatly affect the plot of Paul Atreides and Chani. She’s a key character in Frank Herbert’s novels, so Florence Pugh would be going a long way if the “Dune” saga continued beyond this second part.
In 2023 we return to Arrakis
Denis Villeneuve plans to begin production on ‘Dune: Part 2’ this fall, with the return of Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgård and Dave Bautista in addition to Chalamet and Zendaya. Villeneuve will once again be in charge of the screenplay with Jon Spaiths. Its premiere is scheduled for October 20, 2023.. Ahead of him is the challenge of surpassing the $400 million at the box office that the first part made, although he won’t have the hurdle that ‘Dune’ had of being released in the United States at the same time. in theaters and on HBO Max. The first part also opts for ten Oscars, including that of the best film.
Florence Pugh, for her part, has just cemented her scene-stealing status within the UCM with her appearance in ‘Hawk’s Eye’, and soon has some very interesting projects ahead of him like Olivia Wilde’s ‘Don’t Worry Darling’, Christopher Nolan’s ‘Oppenheimer’, ‘The Wonder’ by Sebastián Lelio and ‘A Good Person’ by Zach Braff. ‘Dune: Part 2’ will be his reunion with Timothée Chalamet after Greta Gerwig’s marvelous ‘Little Women’.
