Timothée Chalamet set to star in remake of 'Dune', with potential franchise/future movies planned




Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet is nearly finalizing talks to star in a remake of 'Dune', with the intention of turning this into a franchise (with multiple features). A summary of the story and his character, based off the Frank Herbert novels, is below:

Chalamet will play the lead, which in the David Lynch-directed original was Kyle MacLachlan. The young nobleman Paul Atreides is the central figure in the series of sprawling epic novels first published in 1965. It is set in the far future involving worlds beyond Earth, ruled over by competing feudal families who control access to a drug called Melange.

More details about the plot are at the source. No word yet on a filming schedule since as Chalamet already has projects coming up, including 'The King' currently in production, and Greta Gerwig's adaptation of 'Little Women'.
