Per News Reelz:
Dune: Part Two just got a pretty legendary name to join its cast. Christopher Walken has nabbed the role of Emperor Shaddam IV in Dune: Part Two, the all-star continuation to Denis Villeneuve’s Oscar-winning adaptation of the Frank Herbert science fiction classic.
Walken joins Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson and Javier Bardem, among others, that are returning, while Florence Pugh and Austin Butler are among the newcomers.
Walken’s role is described as “the ruler of the known universe who initially sends the Atreides family to Arrakis in order to cause their downfall. In the continuation, he and the baron terrorize the populace and must content with the rebellion.” Jose Ferrer played the part in the 1984 movie adaptation by David Lynch.
