Lea Seydoux Tapped to Appear in Dune: Part Two

As first reported in Deadline, French actress Léa Seydoux is in negotiation to play the role of Lady Margot Fenring in Dune: Part Two, an upcoming film by Warner Bros. and Legendary that will be directed, produced, and written by Denis Villeneuve. Jon Spaiths will be returning as a co-screenwriter.

In the novel by Frank Herbert on which the film is based, the character of Lady Margot is an ally of Paul Atreides in his conflict with the house of Harkonnen.

The cast will also include Josh Brolin Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, and Zendaya who had appeared in the earlier Dune production. Also appearing in Dune: Part Two will be Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, and Christopher Walken.

The acclaimed French vedette has received much acclaim recently for her performances at the most recent Cannes festivals. This year, she was seen in David Cronenberg’s Crimes of the Future and in Mia Hansen Love’s One Fine Morning. In 2021, she appeared there in Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch.

Seydou had earlier appeared in a number of Hollywood productions, including Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds and Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood. She was also seen in Mission Impossible—Ghost Protocol and Time Doesn’t Stand Still. In 2014, she won several awards and garnered many favorable reviews for her roles in Blue Is the Warmest Color and Grand Central. She was inducted as a Knight in the French Order of Arts and Letters in 2016.

Production on Dune: Part Two will begin in Budapest this fall, a year before the debut date set for October 20, 2023. The first Dune film has already grossed $400 million worldwide, including $108 million at the domestic box office. It was nominated for 10 Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and won in six categories.
