A very happy International Women’s Day to our favorite little woman of them all: Florence Pugh, who is now in talks to board Dune 2 alongside Little Women hubby Timothée Chalamet. The Hollywood Reporter reports that Pugh has been tapped to potentially star as Princess Irulan, daughter of the Emperor. Now, the big question: How will she balance a voyage to Arrakis with a Madonna Boot Camp at the same time?
The British actress would be the first new star to board the sequel to Denis Villeneuve’s Oscar-nominated sci-fi epic based on Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel series of the same name. She’d be joining a stacked cast with players like Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, and Javier Bardem for the Legendary follow-up, along with, of course, her starry-eyed Little Women co-star. Break out the foot molds, Pugh, you’ve got to make him fall in love with you all over again.
Seeing as Dune’s first iteration attached a hearty roster of Hollywood’s best talent, Academy Award-nominated Pugh seems like an ideal fit in the role—and we’ve already seen her witty on-screen chemistry with Chalamet. That’s key for Princess Irulan, who becomes entangled in a love triangle with Paul. (Yes, the Little Women parallels are everywhere.)
