The Dune Star Is Excited About The Remake
Easily one of the most expected movies of 2020 is Denis Villeneuve’s star-studded adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal novel Dune. Of course, this isn’t the first time Dune has been changed. In addition to a small screen miniseries adaptation in 2000, the material was previously adapted in 1984 which is director David Lynch. That movie starred actor Kyle MacLachlan as Paul Atreides, the role that Timothée Chalamet will play in the new film.
Like the rest of us, The artist Kyle MacLachlan is excited to go to the theater on December 18 to watch Dune. The actor wants to see what the director of Arrival and Blade Runner 2049’s vision is for his version of Dune and how he will put his own spin on Frank Herbert’s classic tale. Kyle MacLachlan was also quite gracious to actor Timothée Chalamet, who will step into the still suit to play Paul Atreides in Denis Villeneuve’s movie.
The player Timothée Chalamet will be the third person to play Paul Atreides onscreen following Kyle MacLachlan and the Syfy miniseries’ Alec Newman, and MacLachlan has faith that the rising star and Oscar nominee will do a great job in the role. Kyle MacLachlan’s take on Denis Villeneuve’s Dune also gets revealed the actor’s recognition of David Lynch’s film and his belief that you don’t have to pick just one.
As Kyle MacLachlan told the director Kevin Smith that, once Denis Villeneuve’s Dune is get released, there will be a few versions of Dune out there in the ether, and there’s plenty of room for all of them. As he remarked that David Lynch, whom he has collaborated with on multiple projects, including Dune, Blue Velvet and Twin Peaks, had a very specific vision for Dune, and therefore this new version will be something completely different.
