Josh Brolin reveals Dune prep in new photo
Josh Brolin (Avengers: Endgame) is certainly doing his part to build excitement for Denis Villeneuveâ€™s upcoming adaptation ofÂ Dune. He captioned a recent postÂ on his personal Instagram account with a quote from Frank Herbertâ€™s hit novel. The image, in which he bares chest, is accompanied by the following line of dialogue:
The quote in question comes from the character Gurney Halleck, a loyal member of House Atreides. Brolin will be playing the role of Gurney in the forthcoming film. Patrick Stewart (Green Room,Â Star Trek: The Next Generation) filled the role in David Lynchâ€™s 1984 adaptation of the book.
With filmingÂ underwayÂ for the project, it is likely that Brolin is on location or will be soon. Joining Brolin is a truly star-studded cast, with Timothee Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name), Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible â€” Fallout) and Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) inÂ leading roles. The film will also feature Zendaya (Spider-Man: Far From Home) Jason Momoa (Aquaman), Dave Bautista (Guardians of the Galaxy), Javier Bardem (No Country For Old Men), Stellan SkarsgardÂ (Thor: The Dark World) and Charlotte Rampling (The Night Porter).
Villeneuve is best known for directing Blade Runner 2049Â as well asÂ Sicario, in which Brolin plays a central role. ThoughÂ DuneÂ will likely resemble the former film more than the latter, both display the sort of experience directing arid, desolate locales that a fan would want in their DuneÂ director, considering a sizable chunk of the story takes place on a desert planet.
DuneÂ will be released in theaters on November 19, 2020.
