Warner Bros has quietly shifted the highly-anticipated “Dune” to December 2.
The film, initially due for release in October, has been shifted as a result of the country’s wide locations due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Born on the planet Caladan to Duke Leto Atreides I and his Bene Gesserit concubine Lady Jessica, Paul eventually travels to Arrakis and winds up becoming a Messiah-like figure to the desert planet’s indigenous people, The Fremen. There, he meets and falls in love with a Fremen warrior named Chani, and is forced to choose between settling down with her and embracing the terrifying destiny glimpsed in his spice-induced visions.
While speaking to Ellen DeGeneres last year, “Game of Thrones” actor Jason Momoa offered up this description of his character, Duncan Idahao, while simultaneously teasing the size and scope of the film.
“I get to play this character Duncan Idaho, who’s kind of a master swordsman who’s made the right hand man to Duke Leto, who is Oscar Isaac’s [character]. He’s the first person to be sent out to land on Dune, and that’s when I meet the character that Javier Bardem plays. I can’t believe I had a scene with Javier Bardem! It’s him and Timothée Chalamet, Josh Brolin, Rebecca Ferguson and Stellan Skarsgård. It’s a pretty massive film and I get to be this little—he’s kind of the Han Solo-esque of the group. He’s kind of the rogue warrior who protects Timothée Chalamet and he serves Oscar Isaac.”
