Denis Villeneuve makes room for more stars in his epic ensemble.
The emperor is found. One of the last major roles in Denis Villeneuve's "Dune" film adaptation has been added, and it will be Christopher Walken who gets to play one of the galaxy's most powerful characters.
Villeneuve has saved the role of Emperor for his sequel, "Dune: Part Two". There we also get to see Florence Pugh in the role of his daughter Princess Irulan. In another new role, "Elvis" star Austin Butler appears as Feyd-Rautha, a relative of the baron played by Stellan Skarsgård.
