DUNE: PART TWO Adds Léa Seydoux 

Continuing on her hot streak this year, it's just been announced that Léa Seydoux is the latest casting addition to Denis Villeneuve's Dune: Part Two. The French actress will portray Lady Margot, a long-standing servant of the Bene Gesserit Sisterhood and wife of the Mentat Count Hasimir Fenring, ruler of his minor house, which is tied to House Corrino and therefore to the feared Emperor.

Seydoux is in negotiations and will join other newcomers Florence Pugh, Austin Butler, and Christopher Walken to star opposite Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, and Josh Brolin.

Production is expected to start this autumn, with the film scheduled to land in cinemas on October 20th, 2023. Expectations are high for this Dune sequel, after the first film racked up ten Academy Award nominations and took home six of the Oscars.

News of Léa Seydoux 's involvement come hot on the heels of her praised Cannes performances in David Cronenberg's body horror Crimes of the Future and Mia Hansen Love's One Fine Morning, as well as her recent roles in Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch and in No Time To Die, opposite Daniel Craig's James Bond.

Deadline first broke the news of Seydoux's casting.
