As previously reported, Brolin joins a cast that includes Chalamet, Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson, Stellan Skarsgard, Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, and Charlotte Rampling. Halleck is also the Atreides clan's warmaster, and develops a special bond with the Duke's son, Paul (Timothée Chalamet).

Legendary acquired the film and television rights to Frank Herbert's novel in November 2016 with Arrival director Denis Villeneuve officially signing on to helm a feature film reboot in February 2017.

Patrick Stewart made one of his first film appearances as Halleck in David Lynch's adaptation of Dune in 1984.

Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049) is directing and co-writing the script with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts. As the only producer of a highly valuable resource, jurisdiction over Arrakis is contested among competing noble families. Kevin J. Anderson will act as a creative consultant. After Paul and his family are betrayed, the story explores themes of politics, religion, and man's relationship to nature as Paul leads a rebellion to restore his family's control of Arrakis.

Brolin probably needs no introduction to the BMD crowd, but it's worth pointing out that this'll be his second time to work with Villeneuve, after 2015's Sicario. Moriarty reprised the role for the network's sequel series, Frank Herbert's Children of Dune. He'll finish up in Avengers: Endgame which bows April 26.
