Dave Bautista (Avengers: Infinity War, Guardians of the Galaxy, Spectre) will be joining Timothee Chalamet and Rebecca Ferguson’s in Legendary’s upcoming remake of Dune, Variety has confirmed. According to THR, Bautista will take on the role of “Beast” Rabban, described as “the sadistic nephew of a baron who oversees Arrakis.”

The actor’s recent credits include Avengers: Infinity War, Hotel Artemis, Final Score, Blade Runner 2049, and Master Z: IP Man Legacy. His upcoming projects will include the action comedy Stuber, My Spy, and Escape Plan 3: Devil’s Station alongside Sylvester Stallone and Harry Shum, Jr.

Ferguson was in talks to play Lady Jessica in the Dune reboot, the mother of Timothee Chalamet’s Paul Atreides, Within Frank Herbert’s classic novel of the same name, Lady Jessica and Paul are part of a noble family who are forced to flee into the deserts of the planet Arrakis. Paul rises to become the new leader of the nomadic desert tribes. Lady Jessica helps convince the nomads that Paul is their messiah. From those humble beginnings, Paul’s quest will threaten to bring down the Emperor who plotted against his family.

Dune was previously adapted by David Lynch in 1985, and it was also a series of TV miniseries starting in 2000 on SYFY. Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival director Denis Villeneuve will helm the Dune remake. Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts wrote the script, and it is being produced by Legendary Pictures. The new Dune may begin filming as soon as next year, although a release date has not yet been announced.

If Dune proves to have better luck at the box office than Lynch’s film, then there’s plenty of material for sequels. Herbert wrote five additional Dune novels before his in 1986. Herbert’s son, Brian Herbert and novelist Kevin J. Anderson collaborated on a number of Dune as well. Brian Herbert and Anderson are both involved with the Dune remake, as an executive producer and creative consultant, respectively.
