JOSH BROLIN Cast in DUNE (And He's Feuding with DAVE BAUTISTA Again)

Dune Reboot Adds Josh Brolin to A List Ensemble

Okay, this is getting ridiculous: Josh Brolin has also joined Denis Villeneuve's two-part adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune. The Thanos actor joins an already star-studded cast that includes Timothee Chalamet, Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Rampling, and Stellan Skarsgard.

Brolin will portray Gurney Halleck, the warmaster for Chalamet's family and a mentor to his character.

Rapper Willie Bo Fatally Shot by Police While Sleeping in His Car
But Willie McCoy's family has pushed back, saying the aspiring rapper was not a threat to the officers as he was just waking up. According to the San Francisco Chronicle , McCoy's death mirrors several other police shootings in the Bay Area in recent years.

In David Lynch's notorious (but secretly kind of awesome) 1984 take on Frank Herbert's classic, Halleck was played by no less than Patrick Stewart. As the only producer of a highly valuable resource, jurisdiction over Arrakis is contested among competing noble families. Herbert wrote five additional Dune novels before his death in 1986. After Paul and his family are betrayed, the story explores themes of politics, religion, and man's relationship to nature as Paul leads a rebellion to restore his family's control of Arrakis. The new Dune may begin filming as soon as this year, although a release date has not yet been announced. The 2000 Dune mini-series, meanwhile, remains one of the highest-rated programs on the Sci-Fi channel. Herbert's son, Brian Herbert and novelist Kevin J. Anderson collaborated on a number of Dune books as well. Brolin recently reprised his role in the sequel, "Sicario: Day of the Soldado".
