Florence Pugh negotiates her participation in the second part of ‘Dune’

Seventh-time winner Florence Pugh could become the first signing of ‘Dune: Part Two‘, the long-awaited second part of the best film of 2021 that will once again have Denis Villeneuve as director. According to media such as Deadline, if signed, the actress would play the role of Irulan Corrino, the same one played by Virginia Madsen in the 1984 version directed by David Lynch. That is, that of her Imperial Highness Princess Irulan Corrino, the eldest of the five daughters of Emperor Shaddam IV, the highest ruler of all Humanity. A character who in the first novel of the saga written by Frank Herbert has a fairly small participation, being that the possible hiring of someone of Pugh’s level suggests that those responsible are very aware of the possibility of a third film. If signed, Pugh will join a cast that will likely return to Timothe Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, Javier Bardem and Josh Brolin. For their part, Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts will re-sign their script with Villeneuve. The filming of this continuation will begin next summer with a view to its premiere, this time “only in theaters”, on October 20, 2023, both in the United States and in Spain. The film is a Legendary Pictures production distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures. Become one of the most sought after actresses in Hollywood, Pugh is currently involved in the filming of ‘Oppenheimer’, the new film by Christopher Nolan. Among her upcoming releases, ‘Don’t Worry, Darling’, the second film as director by Olivia Wilde, or ‘A Good Person’, the new film written and directed by Zach Braff, also stand out. In addition, in recent days she has also sounded like one of the possible candidates to play Madonna in the film that Madonna herself has written and directed.
