In case the non-stop casting announcements for this sci-fi epic wasn’t enough, over the weekend, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Warner Bros. has officially slated Denis Villeneuve’s Dune adaptation for November 20th, 2020, IMAX! The first of which is intended to be a two film adaptation.
As we mentioned, this cast is literally something of legend already, as Denis Villeneuve has become one of the most sought out directors to work with over the past few years. His work of films just since 2013, would be the envy of most directors entire careers. Films like Enemy, Prisoners, Sicario, Arrival, Blade Runner 2049, all have been praised for their brilliance. All of which have also featured incredible cast, and now except for some select cameos/late arrivals that are shrouded in secrecy, we now have the official cast list for Dune.
Rising star Timothee Chalamet will lead the film as Paul Atreides, along with Oscar Isaac (Duke Leto Atreides), Rebecca Ferguson (Lady Jessica), Josh Brolin (Gurney Halleck), Javier Bardem (Stilger), Stellan Skarsgard (Baron Harkonnen), Jason Momoa (Duncan Idaho), Charlotte Rampling (Reverand Mother Mohiam), Zendaya (Chani), and Dave Bautista (“Beast” Rabban).
Dune is and has been for awhile our most anticipated film of 2020. Having one of the greatest sci-fi stories ever told by a master filmmaker like Denis Villeneuve is something of a film lovers dream. We can’t wait!
