Warner Bros. Discovery is busy filling out the cast of the upcoming sequel to the award-winning 2021 adaptation of the novel of the same name.
Now, the studio has found its Emperor Shaddam IV.
According to multiple news outlets, Hollywood legend, Christopher Walken, will join the film's ensemble cast as its main villain, adding even more star power to the A-list lineup.
In the books and the first film, the combined might of Emperor Shaddam IV's House Corrino and House Harkonnen helped wipe out House Atreides.
However, there are survivors, so Shaddam IV hasn't seen the last of House Atreides.
Dune Part 2 is expected to start filming in July with a premiere scheduled for October 2023.
