Javier Bardem Teases Dune Sequel Script, Says It Will 'Surprise People': 'I Was Very Moved By It'

Duna fans are in for a treat — at least that’s what Javier Bardem is saying.

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, secondo Scadenza. “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 saidthey’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 Villenueveone of the greatest directors ever.

The Canadian director — known for movies like Arrival e Sicario— was praised for his depiction of Herbert’s epic, and previously told Il Los Angeles Times that he structured aspects of the first movie around the probability of a sequel. The sci-fi story follows Paul Atreides, giocato da Timothée Chalamet.

“Ci sono alcuni personaggi meno sviluppati che tengo per il secondo film - è così che ho trovato l'equilibrio. Abbiamo cercato in questo film di rimanere il più vicino possibile all'esperienza di Paul,” Villeneuve said. “Quindi, nella seconda, Avrò tempo per sviluppare alcuni personaggi che sono stati un po' lasciati da parte. Questa è la teoria. Spero che funzionerà.”

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, Come Christopher Walken as Emperor Shaddam IV, più Firenze Pugh e Elvis scoppiare maggiordomo di austin.

All'inizio di quest'anno, Duna ricevuto 10 Oscar nominations and went on to win six total: Best Cinematography, Best Editing, Best Score, Best Visual Effects, Best Production Design and Best Sound.
