At this point, if you go to tie your shoe, you’re gonna miss the latest cast member to join Denis Villeneuve’s two-part adaptation of Frank Herbert’s Dune. Case in point: Aquaman himself Jason Momoa has left the sea for the sand.
According to Variety, Momoa will play Duncan Idaho, a swordmaster and right-hand man to the father of Timothee Chalamet’s Paul Atreides, who will be played by Oscar Isaac.
The news comes 24 hours after Josh Brolin joined the A-list cast, which now includes — sing it with me — Chalamet, Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson, Stellan Skarsgard, Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, and Charlotte Rampling.

Dune tells the story of a fallen noble family and an evil galactic emperor, who battle for control over a desert planet named Arrakis, where a rare spice drug is the most lucrative export. Villeneuve adapted the story with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts.
Shooting will commence this spring in Budapest and Jordan.
