Florence Pugh could be reuniting with Little Women co-star Timothée Chalamet in Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune: Part 2.

According to reports, the Black Widow actress is currently in negotiations to portray Princess Irulan Corrino — a main character in Frank Herbert’s sci-fi epic who eventually becomes romantically involved with Chalamet’s Paul Atreides. If a deal is inked, this will mark a new collaboration between Pugh and Chalamet, who both starred in Greta Gerwig’s Little Women adaptation as Amy March and Theodore “Laurie” Lawrence, respectively.

Variety adds that production for Dune: Part 2 is scheduled to begin this summer and will see the return of Villeneuve as director and Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista and Javier Bardem.

Dune: Part 2 premieres October 20, 2023.

Elsewhere in entertainment, take a look at the trailer for Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas’ long-delayed thriller, Deep Water.
