New details about Villeneuve's “Dune”

Since the output of the fantastic projects Avatar-2 and Star Wars was postponed for 1 year, in 2020 Dune was left without obvious competitors in the global box office, Warner Bros. it remains only to increase the informational coverage of the picture. To begin with, it is worth noting that the picture will have 2 parts: one about the expanded background of the world, which will more fully and deeply reveal the storylines of the book, the next will be a continuation of the events begun. According to the director, the whole multidimensionality and scale of the original Frank Herbert novel is simply impossible to fit in only one full-length film. And only after the rental of the first meter in 2020, it will be possible to start developing the second part.

Let's consider even more new details about the film “Dune” (2020) by Denis Villeneuve, the filming and cast.

Shooting and casting cast

At the end of April, the first month of filming in Jordan ended, and the team returned to Budapest, where it will work until the end of the summer of 2019. After the premiere of "Avengers: Final", Josh Brolin also returned to Budapest to the crew.

Then Oscar Isaac joined the team, and Jason Momoa shaved his beard for the first time since 2012.

The role of “pure evil”, Baron Harkonnen, went to Stellan Skarsgard (“Chernobyl”, “Cinderella”, “Thor”), and he managed to share his impressions of the shootings. According to the actor himself, he was never a fan of the original novel and read it recently. But Skargard was a fan of Villeneuve's work for a long time, so he immediately agreed to join the Dune caste. Many hours a day have to be spent on complex makeup and prosthetics of artificial body parts to fit the actor’s forms to create a visual image of Harkonnen.

But the Shai-Hulud sandworm fans wanted to see Christian Bale, who would again experiment with his own weight. For the sake of this role, he would have gained a record number of kilograms (204,116 kg or 450,000 pounds) to increase his body weight to the size of a monster, because why should he make up?

There was even comic news on the Internet that for the sake of a new role, Bale had changed beyond recognition, and that’s not all: he continues to grow fat. And the only replica of the actor is a guttural growl.

The role of an officer from the entourage of the Duke Leto Atreides went to the German actor Bjorn Freiberg.

"Adult" rating

According to the latest news, an intimacy coordinator was hired for Dunes to determine the age limit for the audience.
