Denis Villeneuve Confirms What We Suspected All Along About The New Villain In Dune: Part Two

In an interview with Empire magazine published on October 16, 2021, Villenueve shed some light on his plans for “Dune: Part Two,” specifically whether Feyd-Rautha will play a role in the story.

Villenueve said that Feyd-Rautha will “definitely” show up in “Dune: Part Two.” “That’s a choice that I personally brought on,” Villenueve said. “There was enough characters that were introduced in this first part, and it will be more elegant to keep Feyd for Part Two. It will be definitely a very, very important character in the second part.”

Feyd-Rautha is obviously a major character in the story. In the 1984 David Lynch adaptation of “Dune,” the character was played by Sting. In the book, Feyd-Rautha has a very strong reason to hate Paul. Like Paul, Feyd-Rautha is the result of a centuries-long breeding program run by the Bene Gesserit that was supposed to result in a male member of House Harkonnen marrying a female member of House Atreides. They were supposed to give birth to the Kwisatz Haderach. Lady Jessica was originally supposed to give birth to that female, until she defied her mystical order and had Paul instead. At the risk of spoiling the rest of the plot, we’ll leave it there.

The actor who will be playing Feyd-Rautha hasn’t been announced yet, but fans have already been offering their choices on social media. Robert Pattinson, Bill Skaarsgard, Jared Leto, Ezra Miller, and Barry Keoghan are all popular choices (via Esquire).

Luckily, fans won’t have to wait too long to find out what Villenueve has planned for the iconic character, as “Dune: Part Two” will premiere on October 23, 2023.
