After her scene-stealing performance in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, Rebecca Ferguson has her eyes set on one of the most exciting projects currently in development. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ferguson is in talks to take a lead role in Denis Villeneuve’s next project, the remake of Dune.
If she lands the role, Ferguson will join Call Me By Your Name star Timothee Chalamet, who is already on board to play the protagonist, Paul Atreides. Based on the popular novel by Frank Herbert, Dune is looking to start production in 2019. Villeneuve will also produce the project, along with Mary Parent and Cale Boyter.
Ferguson is most known for her role as Ilsa Faust in the Mission: Impossible series, although she has had sizeable roles in films such as The Greatest Showman and Life. The actress recently joined the cast of the new Men In Black movie and will star in the adaptation of Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep later this year.
