Spider-Man's Zendaya May Star in Denis Villineuve's Dune

The star-stuffed cast of Denis Villeneuve's Dune continues to grow A new report says Zendaya (Spider-Man: Far From Home) is in talks to join the latest adaptation of Frank Herbert's classic work.

Collider reports Zendaya is in negotiations to play the role of Chani, a Freman warrior who eventually becomes Paul Atreides' (Timothée Chalamet) companion. (The Hollywood Reporter also followed up with his own story.) Atreides first met Chani after he and his mother (Rebecca Ferguson) escaped from Arrakeen and joined the desert-dwelling Fremen of Arrakis. She's never seen him before, but he knows who she is-having a series of visions about her.

As far as the rest of the cast goes, besides Chalamet, we recently learned that Oscar Isaac is in talks to star as his father. Dune Will also feature Charlotte Rampling as the Reverend Mother Mohiam, Stellan Skarsgård as Baron Harkonnen, and Dave Bautista as his nephew.

No release date has been announced yet for Dune but you can catch Zendaya in Spider-man movie: Far From Home on July 5.
