“I’ve read the new draft,” Bardem shared with the audience members of the sequel’s progress, 根据 截止日期. “And I think they’ve done an amazing job of putting together the pieces in a way that is gonna surprise people.”

Bardem will reprise his role as Stilgar in 沙丘: Part Two, and said he can’t wait to get back on set. He called Villenueve “one of the greatest directors ever.”
