Jason Momoa in Talks to Join Timothee Chalamet in 'Dune' Reboot

Jason Momoa is the latest star in talks to join the cast of the upcoming reboot of Dune!

The 39-year-old Aquaman star is in negotiations to play Duncan Idaho – the swordsmaster who is fiercely loyal to Timothee Chalamet‘s character Paul Arteides and his family, THR reports.

Set in the distant future, Dune follows Paul Atreides, whose family assumes control of the desert planet Arrakis. As the only producer of a highly valuable resource, jurisdiction over Arrakis is contested among competing noble families. After Paul and his family are betrayed, the story explores themes of politics, religion, and man’s relationship with nature, as Paul leads a rebellion to restore his family’s reign.

Confirmed cast members include Josh Brolin, Rebecca Ferguson, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgard, Charlotte Rampling, and Javier Bardem. Zendaya and Oscar Isaac are also in talks to join the cast.

Production for Dune is set to begin in the spring.
