Ahead of the release of his upcoming film Dune, Timothée Chalamet shared additional details regarding his co-star Zendaya‘s role in the proposed sequel.

The film boasts a high-profile ensemble cast that includes Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, Oscar Isaac and Rebecca Ferguson. In a recent Deadline interview, Chalamet revealed that he feels as if his character, protagonist Paul Atreides, has become a part of his “flesh.” He also admitted that he set up a Google alert to track news about the project since hearing that director Denis Villeneuve was helming the project. Chalamet spoke about Zendaya’s character in the plot sharing, “Chani will play a huge role in the next film. I don’t know if there’s a script yet, but just based on the book, along with Lady Jessica [Rebecca Ferguson], they have a lot to do together, let’s put it like that.”

Though he does not divulge too many details, Chalamet does compliment his co-star, “Zendaya was incredible in this movie; the moment she pulls the mask down, it felt properly showstopping and powerful. I was hiding behind the camera, counting my lucky stars, because I was there in month two of the shoot, and there was a total powerhouse just coming in for the first time.”

Villeneuve has split the book in half with the hope of getting a green light for the second film soon. Dune arrives in theaters on October 14 after its Venice International Film Festival debut on September 3.
