Jason Momoa Joins Timothée Chalamet, Javier Bardem in ‘Dune’ Reboot

The cast of Denis Villeneuve's Dune just keeps getting cooler and cooler, and according to The Wrap, it's about to get a healthy dose of MY MAN Jason Momoa.

Momoa is reportedly in talks to play Duncan Idaho, a swordmaster from house Atreides, who is considered the right-hand man of Paul's father. Momoa joins an already stellar cast of Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgård, Charlotte Rampling, Javier Bardem, and Josh Brolin.

He also co-wrote the script with Oscar-winner Eric Roth (Forest Gump) and Jon Spaihts (Prometheus). As the only producer of a highly valuable resource, control of Arrakis is highly contested among the noble families.

The mistake is only the latest issue for the exchange, whose CEO and founder, Gerald Cotten, died in India late previous year . The exchange already owes customers $250 million in CAD ($190 million U.S.) in cryptocurrencies and fiat.

He has been a favorite of the fanboy set since his work as Dothraki warlord Khal Drogo in Game of Thrones, a project which mirrors the ambition of Dune. The director will also serve as a producer alongside Mary Parent and Cale Boyter, while Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt, Thomas Tull, and Kim Herbert will sere as executive producers. Our young hero is Paul Atreides, played by Timothee Chalamet, whose family is betrayed, leaving him to lead a rebellion to protect the precious spice.

The actor is coming off the huge success of Aquaman, which has grossed more than $1.1 billion worldwide in about seven weeks. Per the latest report, he'll be playing a guy named Duncan Idaho - which is the most Momoa-sounding character name ever. Momoa is now filming Apple's sci-fi series See, but Dune offers him the chance to work with one of Hollywood's top directors, and with a cast like this one, it's easy to see why he'd tackle a bad-ass supporting role here despite proving himself as a lead with Aquaman.

Momoa is repped by WME.
