Part 2 stars tease “Far From Finished History”
Perhaps one of the hottest and most surprising blockbusters to release this year has been Dune, which ultimately brought Denis Villeneuve’s version of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel to life. The star-studded film showcased the first half of Herbert’s source material and left audiences curious and eager to see the rest of the story. In a recent interview with Deadline, two of the stars of the film – Chani Zendaya actress and Paul Atredies actor Timothee Chalamet – spoke about the anticipation surrounding the recently announced sequel, as well as what fans can expect from the story that he still has to tell.
âWell I can be there longer which is cool,â Zendaya said with a laugh. âI want to grow up with the characters I play and with the people I learn with. Anyone who’s read the books knows there’s so much more to explore and deal with. Which was cool for me not to being there a long time from the first shoot was seeing the movie from a completely new perspective, because I hadn’t seen the sets and scenes for most of the movie. And watching it was just that. the beginning of this story. “
âWe were ready to [go back] at the time [when we wrapped Part One]”, added Chalamet.” This story is far from over. These characters are far from their end point. It’s a dream come true to work once with Denis on a film of this magnitude. And it’s definitely a marathon and not a sprint, so you have to adapt to your pace. But you don’t want to tire of having fun. Definitely, in the project I’m currently working on [Paul King’s Wonka], I’m learning even more that you don’t have to suffer all day at work. How lucky are we to do this? “
As for when the sequel could begin production, Villeneuve has hinted that it might not be until then next year, at the earliest.
“It’s fantastic news, but it’s also kind of a burden,” Villeneuve said in an interview with Hollywood journalist. âThe good news is that a lot of the work has already been done regarding the design, the casting, the locations and the writing. So we’re not starting from scratch. It’s not a long time, but I will. trying to do this challenge because it’s important to me that the audience sees the second part as soon as possible. It’s not a sequel where it’s another episode or another story with the same characters. makes a direct continuity with the first movie. This is the second part of the big, huge movie that I’m trying to do. So the sooner the better.
“It’s too early,” added the filmmaker. “We still have a lot of work to do. It would probably be more towards the fall, and even that would be quick. (Laughs.)”
