Christopher Walken Joins DUNE PART TWO as Emperor Shaddam IV

Christopher Walken Joins DUNE PART TWO as Emperor Shaddam IV
Christopher Walken is the latest addition to the cast of Denis Villeneuve's adaptation of Frank Herbert's sci-fi classic "Dune". Villeneuve and Jon Spaihts are once again writing the script.

Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson and Javier Bardem, among others, are returning for the second installment.

The second chapter of the epic saga will continue where "Part One" left off, with Paul Atreides (Chalamet) fighting alongside the Fremen to free the desert planet of Arrakis from the grips of House Harkonnen.

Walken will play Emperor Shaddam IV, the ruler of the known universe who ordered the Atreides family to Arrakis in order to cause their downfall. The character did not appear in "Dune: Part One", but will play an important role in the final chapter. Florence Pugh has also joined the cast as Princess Irulan, the Emperor's daughter. Austin Butler recently signed on to play Rautha Harkonnen, the presumptive heir to the Harkonnen dynasty, who is being groomed to rule Arrakis.

Filming will begin this summer in Budapest. "Dune: Part Two" will open in theaters on October 20, 2023.
