Big Dave Bautista Joins DUNE

The Hollywood Reporter:

Dave Bautista has joined the high-profile cast of Dune, Legendary’s adaptation of the Frank Herbert novel being directed by Denis Villeneuve.

Timothee Chamalet and Rebecca Ferguson are already toplining the project, which tells the complex story of a fallen noble family’s attempt to control of a desert planet named Arrakis and its export, a rare spice drug, while being betrayed by a galactic emperor.

For those more familiar with the source material than I, Dave will be playing “‘Beast’ Rabban, the sadistic nephew of a baron who oversees Arrakis.”

I’ll be honest, I’m in for whatever Villeneuve makes, and I’m excited to see him continue to work with Bautista.
