Dune star Timothée Chalamet revealed why he's excited about the upcoming adaptation of the sci-fi classic.
Rotten Tomatoes spoke with Chalamet about his upcoming role in Denis Villeneuve's Dune reboot during promotion for his newest film, The King. During the brief chat, the actor revealed it was quite a unique experience on set:
Chalamet specifically noted that one of the interesting aspects of the film was all the "things they built." This may imply a number of practical sets or effects were used for the movie, an increasingly rare feat for a genre film of this size.
Dune will reportedly cover two films, allowing the epic tale to develop even further than it did in the original cinematic adaptation. Chalamet, meanwhile, can currently be seen in the Netflix film The King, in which he plays Henry V.
Directed by Denis Villeneuve from a script he co-wrote with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts, Legendary Pictures' Dune stars Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Stellan Skarsgård, Javier Bardem, Charlotte Rampling, Dave Bautista, David Dastmalchian, Zendaya, Jason Momoa, Stephen Henderson and Josh Brolin. The first film has a scheduled release date of Dec. 18, 2020.
