'Avengers' Star Josh Brolin Joins Denis Villeneuve's 'Dune' Remake

Josh Brolin Joins Denis Villenueve’s ‘Dune’ At Legendary

He boards a cast that includes Timothée Chalamet, Javier Bardem, Rebecca Ferguson, Stellan Skarsgard, Dave Bautista, and Charlotte Rampling, with Oscar Isaac and Zendaya in talks to join.

Today brings yet another update: according to Variety, Josh Brolin has signed on to appear in Denis Villeneuve's Dune, where he'll be playing "Gurney Halleck, the warmaster for Chalamet's family and a mentor to his character". Patrick Stewart played the role in David Lynch's 1984 movie adaptation.

Dune tells the story of a fallen noble family and an evil galactic emperor, who battle for control over a desert planet named Arrakis, where a rare spice drug is the most lucrative export. After Atreides is betrayed, he leads a rebellion to restore his family's reign.

Dune begins shooting this spring. A mini-series for TV was produced in the early 2000s on the Syfy channel. Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival director Denis Villeneuve will helm the Dune remake. The script was written by Villeneuve, Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts.

If Dune proves to have better luck at the box office than Lynch's film, then there's plenty of material for sequels.

In Frank Herbert's novel, Gurney Halleck is a vital member of Duke Leto Atreides' inner circle. Brian Herbert and Anderson are both involved with the Dune remake, as an executive producer and creative consultant, respectively.
