Dune-the upcoming science fiction epic, called Dune: Part One-roughly covers the first half of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel. As the Dune trailer shows, the film tells the story of the Atreides family, the Duke of Leto (Oscar Isaac), his concubine, Mrs. Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson), and their Son Paul (played by Timothy Chalamet), they control a dangerous desert planet named Arakis, home to the most precious substance in the universe: spices. Chalamet’s Paul is the protagonist of “Dune”, but he will not continue to play role in “Dune: Part Two”, director Dennis Villeneuve revealed. Instead, Zendaya, who plays Arrakis native and Paul’s lover Chani, will take over.

“When I was casting for the role of Chani, I met a lot of actresses,” Villeneuve told La Repubblica (translated by IGN). “Zendaya wanted to audition. Today, after filming movie and seeing what a wonderful actress she is, I’m sorry I auditioned her. It’s just because I didn’t know her. However, she left me with that day. I was deeply impressed. When she left the studio, I knew that Charni was her, the young desert tiger. It was an honor to present two such explosive geniuses on the screen. [Chalamet and Zendaya] I can’t wait to shoot the second part of “Dune” to get them together again. Knowing that in the next chapter, Zandaya will become the protagonist of the story. “

Villeneuve has planned “Dune” as a two-part movie series, but is the first time we have heard of his “Dune: Part Two” plan. In 2018, Villeneuve revealed that he only signed with Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. director Dune on the condition that he could get the contract for the two films. In an interview in 2020, he said: “I don’t agree to use a movie to adapt this book. The is too complicated. This is a world that exerts power in the details.” Therefore, when WarnerMedia stated at the end of 2020 When all Warner Bros. works in 2021 will be released on HBO Max, Villeneuve is frustrated because he feels it will jeopardize the future of his franchise.

Villeneuve added in December last year: “Streaming can produce great content, but it cannot produce movies of the scale and scale of Dune.” “Warner Bros.” The decision means that Dune will not have the opportunity to execute financially. Stay alive and piracy will eventually win. Warner Bros. may have just killed the Dune franchise. is for fans. AT&T’s John Stankey said the streaming left the barn. In fact, The horse left the barn for the slaughterhouse. […] My team and I have invested more than three years to create a unique large-screen experience. The images and sounds of our movies have been carefully designed and can be watched in theaters. “

WarnerMedia still insists on its HBO Max decision on Dune- seems more sensible in the past month or so, as the Delta variant of COVID-19 has swept the United States. The country reported more than 250,000 new coronavirus cases on Monday. Naturally, audiences are now less willing to enter closed indoor spaces such as movie theaters, and Dune’s hybrid release allows them to choose how to watch movies comfortably. Villeneuve, in criticizing WarnerMedia’s owner AT&T, admitted that it was necessary to put public safety first, but like everyone at the time, he believed that by October 2021, the would return to a new normal. Alas, this seems unlikely.

“Dune” will be released in cinemas around the on October 22, and will be released on HBO Max in the United States (the first month of release). In India, “Dune” will be published in English and Hindi. It will have its world premiere at the 2021 Venice Film Festival on September 3.
