‘Dune’ Adds Charlotte Rampling to Cast

Jan 15, 2019

Charlotte Rampling is the next to join the cast of Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune,’ Legendary’s adaptation of the Frank Herbert novel. The French actress got herself an Oscar nomination for the 2015 British film ’45 Years.’

Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Dave Bautista and Stellan Skarsgard have previously joined the cast.

Rampling will play the Reverend Mother Mohiam, the emperor’s truthsayer. Also, she is a person who can divine intentions, suss out lies and manipulate people’s emotional states.

‘Dune,’ considered a sci-fi literary classic, tells the complex story of a fallen noble family’s attempt to control a desert planet named Arrakis and its export, a rare spice drug, even as it is betrayed by a galactic emperor.

Rampling is a longtime thespian, who has also appeared in ‘The Verdict’ with Paul Newman and Showtime’s ‘Dexter.’ Moreover, she recently appeared with Jennifer Lawrence in ‘Red Sparrow.’

Villeneuve, Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts wrote the screenplay. Filming will take place in Budapest and Jordan starting this spring.
