Denis Villeneuveâ€™s Dune Moved Back One Month
Warner Bros. has announced that Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049)â€™s upcoming ensemble adaptation of the sci-fi novel epicÂ DuneÂ has had its release date pushed back by a month, while also revealing it will now be receiving an IMAX release.
Josh Brolin (Avengers: Endgame)Â 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 December 18, 2020.
