With the production under way, we can expect to see the entire principal cast return for Denis Villenueve’s big-budget sci-fi sequel Dune: Part Two, which is only a year and a half away from release.
Austin Butler and Florence Pugh have joined a top-tier crew already saddled with the burden of continuing Timothee Chalamet‘s Paul Atreides’ story while also providing Zendaya more screen-time, without even mentioning a cast that includes Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgard, Dave Bautista, and Rebecca Ferguson.
However, it was assumed that Josh Brolin wouldn’t be returning as Gurney Halleck because his name was missing from the IMDb credits for the second Dune film. The actor said in an interview with Collider that he had to resort to using his publicist to fix the problem, which could have gotten out of hand if he hadn’t done so
“I am a part of Dune: Part Two, to the ridiculous extent of when somebody mentioned to me that it wasn’t on IMDb, I actually went out of my way to call Liz (his publicist) and say, “Can you please put that on IMDb?” Because it’s a proud moment for me, man.”
The reboot of Dune earned a decent box-office return, was praised by critics and audiences, and earned a slew of Academy Award nods, including Best Picture. Brolin is still fizzing that Villenueve was overlooked for his work behind the camera. Based on the quality of the premiere, however, Part Two may get him the award he feels he deserves.
