Pugh would play Princess Irulan Corrino, daughter to Emperor Shaddam Corrino IV, in the Denis Villeneuve written and directed sequel opposite Timothée Chalamet. Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, and Josh Brolin are also expected to return. Production is expected to begin this Fall with a current release date of October 20th, 2023 being eyed.
