While at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, the Spanish star participated in a Q&A with fans as part of the festival’s 75th birthday celebrations. One of the topics Bardem, 53, covered was the highly anticipated sequel to director Denis Villeneuve’s Duna.
“I’ve read the new draft,” Bardem shared with the audience members of the sequel’s progress, de acordo com Prazo final. “And I think they’ve done an amazing job of putting together the pieces in a way that is gonna surprise people.”
While he acknowledged that fans of Frank Herbert’s original book series won’t necessarily be surprised by what happens in the movie, Bardem said “they’ll be surprised by the way they put it together.”
“I was very moved by it,” he said of the script.
Bardem will reprise his role as Stilgar in Duna: Part Two, and said he can’t wait to get back on set. He called Villenueve “one of the greatest directors ever.”

The Canadian director — known for movies like Chegada e Sicario— was praised for his depiction of Herbert’s epic, and previously told The Los Angeles Times that he structured aspects of the first movie around the probability of a sequel. The sci-fi story follows Paul Atreides, jogado por Timothée Chalamet.
“Existem alguns personagens menos desenvolvidos que estou reservando para o segundo filme - foi assim que encontrei o equilíbrio. Tentamos neste filme ficar o mais próximo possível da experiência de Paul,” Villeneuve said. “Então, no segundo, Terei tempo para desenvolver alguns personagens que ficaram um pouco de lado. Essa é a teoria. Espero que funcione.”
Chalamet, Zendaya e Rebecca Ferguson are returning in the sequel, alongside Bardem. While some characters are positioned to have bigger roles in the second film, the sequel will also introduce some new faces, gostar Christopher Walken as Emperor Shaddam IV, mais Florence Pugh e Elvis saia Austin Butler.
