Léa Seydoux in Talks to Play Lady Margot in 'Dune: Part Two'.

Léa Seydoux is in talks to play Lady Margot in "Dune: Part Two", the follow-up to last year’s Oscar-winning sci-fi epic.

In the "Dune" novels, Lady Margot is described as being a long-standing servant of the Sisterhood.

Director Denis Villeneuve is set to start filming the “Dune” sequel later this year, with Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgard and Dave Bautista set to reprise their roles. They will be joined by new actors Austin Butler, Christopher Walken and Florence Pugh.

Dune: Part Two is written by Villeneuve and Jon Spaihts, based on the novel by Frank Herbert. Cale Boyter, Jessica Derhammer, and Mary Parent are producing, with Hans Zimmer returning to compose the score for the film. Seydoux is known for her role in Midnight in Paris and recurring roles in the James Bond movies Spectre and No Time to Die. In addition, she's hot off David Cronenberg's Crimes of the Future, where she starred as Caprice, a former trauma surgeon who removes organs from her performance partner.

Not long after the first film hit theaters, Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment confirmed that Dune 2 was in early development, with a release date set for the fall of 2023. Not much is known about the sequel just yet, but the first film left the story on a major cliffhanger, seeing Paul set out into the desert with a tribe of Fremon to an unknown fate.
