David Dastmalchian reunites with Denis Villeneuve for Dune

Denis Villeneuve’s Dune reboot continues to add to its impressive cast. According to Deadline, the production has enlisted Ant-Man and Wasp actor David Dastmalchian to play “twisted Mental” Piter De Vries, a being with mental capabilities that rival even the most powerful computers.

Dastmalchian has appeared in a number of high-profile pics, including The Dark Knight, and the recent Netflix thriller Bird Box. He also appeared in Villeneuve’s Prisoners and Blade Runner 2049.

Dune features an all-star ensemble cast that includes Timothée Chalamet (Call Me by Your Name), Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: Episode IX), Zendaya (Spider-Man: Far From Home), Oscar winner Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men), Stellan Skarsgård (Thor), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Fallout), Charlotte Rampling (45 Years), Josh Brolin (Sicario), and Dave Bautista (Avengers: Infinity War).

Set in the distant future, Dune follows Paul Atreides, whose family assumes control of the desert planet Arrakis. As the only producer of a highly valuable resource, jurisdiction over Arrakis is contested among competing noble families. After Atreides is betrayed, he leads a rebellion to restore his family’s reign.

Dune was previously adapted by David Lynch in 1985, and it was also a series of TV miniseries starting in 2000 on SYFY. Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival director Denis Villeneuve will helm the Dune remake. Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts wrote the script, and it is being produced by Legendary Pictures.

If Dune proves to have better luck at the box office than Lynch’s film, then there’s plenty of material for sequels. Herbert wrote five additional Dune novels before his death in 1986. Herbert’s son, Brian Herbert and novelist Kevin J. Anderson collaborated on a number of Dune books as well. Brian Herbert and Anderson are both involved with the Dune remake, as an executive producer and creative consultant, respectively.

Dune will debut in theaters on November 20, 2020.
