Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment are looking for the cast to play the role of Feyd-Rautha in ‘Dune: Part Two.’ Kyle Buchanan, a journalist from The New York Times reported that Harry Styles and Tye Sheridan were both considered for the role. Austin Butler is currently in talks for the role. Dune: Part Two production start in July 2022.
Feyd-Rautha is the younger nephew and heir of Baron Vladimir Harkonnen and is depicted to be as similarly cruel, treacherous, and cunning as his despicable uncle. Both Frank Herbert’s original novel and David Lynch’s universally panned Dune closely toe this character line, with Feyd-Rautha viewed as a powerful sadist reveling in the security of the Harkonnen name who commits unspeakable atrocities on the planet Arrakis.
Harry Styles is known for his musical career and for his role in Dunkirk and Eternals, who plays ‘Eros’ Thanos’ younger brother. Tye Sheridan is best known for his roles in The Tree of Life, Men: Apocalypse, X-Men: Dark Phoenix, and Ready Player One: The Game Begins.
Kyle Buchanan tweeted a link attached to the Deadline content and added that “they also looked at Harry Styles and Tye Sheridan for this role …” That ellipsis has us going hmm … in a big way. Did Villeneuve see Styles’ performance in Eternals and go “Scrap it”? Did he watch The Card Counter and say, “That’s quite enough family vengeance from Tye Sheridan, thanks”?
Florence Pugh is in talks to play Princess Irulan in ‘Dune Part Two’. According to Deadline, Florence Pugh is in negotiations to join the sequel of Dune. also, it is not confirmed yet, sources say she will play Princess Irulan Corrino, the eldest daughter of Emperor Shaddam Corrino IV.
