On August 24, Dune fans were dismayed to learn of the postponement of the second part of the saga initiated by Denis Villeneuve to 2021. The feature film, scheduled for November 1, has been pushed back to March 13, 2024, due to the strike that is paralyzing Hollywood. the moment
In anticipation of the fans of the world created by Frank Herbert, Denis Villeneuve and his team revealed some secrets of filming.. Two artists in particular discussed the thorny issue of choosing a grain of sand in the Arrakis desert.
Together with the cinematographer Graig Fraser and the producer Patrice Vermette, Denis Villeneuve spent a long time exploring the smallest grain of sand in the desert.
“For my production, I wanted a dune of a specific shape. But on the other hand, Greig Fraser needed the same shape to have specific lighting. Then Patrice spent weeks sandcasting in the desert. We looked absolutely crazy!”The Canadian director confides.
“I still find it in my shoes every morning. We’re traumatized by the sand, that’s for sure.”– Denis Villeneuve adds fun. For his part, Patrice Vermette spent a lot of time walking around with bottles full of sand for the purposes of the first opus.
I still find it in my shoes every morning. We are traumatized by the sand, that’s for sure.
We had to be sure that the color and composition of the sand was the same in both filming locations: in the Abu Dhabi desert and in Wadi Rum, Jordan. However, for Dune 2, the production designer had to rethink everything: “We didn’t use any locations. This time we found completely new places to tell our story.”Patrice Vermette claims.
Written by Denis Villeneuve and Jon Speights with the help of Craig Mazin, screenwriter of the hit series The Last of Us, Dune 2 picks up where the first installment left off. Paul Atreides teams up with Chan and the Fremen to lead a rebellion against those who destroyed his family. Haunted by dark premonitions, he finds himself faced with the greatest dilemma of all: choosing between the love of his life and the fate of the world.
In terms of casting, much of the cast from the first film is back: Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgård, Charlotte Rampling and Dave Bautista. They are joined by Christopher Walken as Emperor Shaddam IV, Léa Seydoux as Lady Margot and Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan Corino.
