Cast of Dune 2; Dune: Part Two is an upcoming 2024 American epic science fiction film directed by Denis Villeneuve, who co-wrote the screenplay alongside Jon Spaihts. Serving as the sequel to Dune (2021), the film is the second installment of a two-part adaptation of Frank Herbert’s iconic 1965 novel, Dune. The narrative continues to follow the journey of Paul Atreides as he allies with the Fremen people on the desert planet Arrakis to wage war against House Harkonnen. The star-studded cast features returning actors Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgård, Charlotte Rampling, and Javier Bardem. Additionally, newcomers to the ensemble include Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Christopher Walken, and Léa Seydoux.
The development of the project commenced after Legendary Entertainment acquired the film and television rights for Dune in 2016. Denis Villeneuve officially joined as the director in 2017, expressing his intention to create a comprehensive two-part adaptation due to the intricate nature of the source material.
Initially, production contracts were secured for only the first film, with the fate of the sequel contingent on the success of the initial installment. Despite concerns about the sequel’s certainty following the simultaneous theatrical and HBO Max release of the first film, Warner Bros. Pictures assured Villeneuve that the sequel would move forward if it performed well on HBO Max. Following the critical acclaim and commercial triumph of the initial film, both Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment officially green-lit Dune: Part Two in October 2021.
The announcement of new cast members, including Pugh, Butler, Walken, Seydoux, and Yacoub, was made in 2022, with Tim Blake Nelson joining the cast a year later. Principal photography unfolded in various locations, such as Budapest, Italy, and Abu Dhabi, spanning from July to December 2022.
Scheduled for release on March 1, 2024, by Warner Bros. Pictures, Dune: Part Two is highly anticipated, building upon the success of its predecessor.

Dune 2 Release date
Dune: Part Two initially had an anticipated release date of October 20, 2023, but underwent schedule adjustments. It was first pushed to November 17, 2023, and then moved forward by two weeks to November 3, 2023, to accommodate changes in release schedules from other film studios. However, due to the 2023 Hollywood labor disputes, the release faced a significant delay of over four months, ultimately rescheduled for March 15, 2024. Following the resolution of the strikes, the film’s release date was further adjusted, moving up by two weeks to March 1, 2024. Notably, Dune: Part Two is set to be showcased in the IMAX 70 mm format at twelve venues worldwide, a decision influenced by the success of Nolan’s Oppenheimer (2023).
