You know a movie’s gearing up to begin shooting when casting reports start trickling in. In the case of Dune: Part Two, it was revealed earlier this week that Black Widow star Florence Pugh is being eyed to play Princess Irulan Corrino. Today now brings word that Elvis star Austin Butler is being eyed to play Feyd-Rautha, another integral character from Frank Herbert’s original novel.

Although the internet suggested actors like Robert Pattinson and Bill Skarsgård for the role played by Sting in David Lynch’s Dune movie, and Eternals star Barry Keoghan sounded game to tackle the role of Baron Vladimir Harkonnen’s younger nephew, Deadline has heard that Austin Butler is in negotiations to play the character. Butler is months away from finally being seen onscreen as Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s biopic about the King of Rock and Roll, so if the actor ends up reaching a deal to play Feyd-Rautha in Dune: Part Two, this would be another major milestone for his film career.

More to come…
