The premiere of the first part of the series, directed by Denis Villeneuve and starring Timothée Chalamet, was also postponed: due to the pandemic, the Dune was moved from 2020 to 2021. The date of the presentation of the second part was changed several times: initially it was planned for October 20, 2022, then it was postponed to November 17, and later the date was brought even earlier, to November 3. Finally, in August of this year, the news came that the film would not be released this year, due to the Hollywood actors’ strike that started in the summer, which prevented the main actors from participating in the promotion of the film.
The strike is now over, but unfortunately it was too late to bring back the 2nd show of Dune for 2023. In addition to Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgård and Dave Bautista also return, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh and Christopher Walken also join the cast. Butler will play Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen, one of the prominent antagonists of Frank Herbert’s novel. The actor recently shared that he initially had reservations about the character: “There was an interesting situation with Dune when I met Denis Villeneuve, we understood each other well, and we started talking about Feyd. The script wasn’t ready then, but as we talked more and more about the character, I started to get more and more excited about the challenge. Now that’s what motivates me when I choose a role: the one that can really scare me,” Butler said.
