Talking about the character, Timothée Chalamet said, “The immediately appealing thing about Paul was the fact that in a story of such detail and scale and world-building, the protagonist is on an anti-hero’s-journey of sorts. He thinks he’s going to be sort of a young general studying his father and his leadership of a fighting force before he comes of age, hopefully, a decade later, or something like that.”

Sharing the information, Villeneuve said that the story was indeed adapted from Frank Herbert’s novel but Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts assisted him in the adaptation. He said, “Dune was made by people from all over the world. Many of these people are like family to me, and they’re very much in my thoughts. I’m so proud to showcase their hard work. I look forward to a time when we can all get together again as Dune was made to be seen on the big screen,”

The film is a star-studded affair, along with Timothée Chalamet, it boasts actors like Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgard, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa and Javier Bardem. Looks like the release of Dune will not get postponed due to the pandemic crisis, considering its release in the end of the year, things will be looking in a better shape.
