Film How Denis Villeneuve, Mary Parent And The Cast Crafted ‘Dune’ To Lead Cinema’s Reawakening

A complex narrative and the difficulty of shooting a blockbuster in the scorching deserts of Jordan became the least of the challenges for Warner Bros and Legendary’s already ambitious reimagining of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi epic when a global pandemic threatened to disrupt the movie’s chance to screen in theaters. But ‘Dune: Part One’ was a box office hit, a reminder for audiences the world over of the power of cinema, and has triggered ‘Part Two’ to come. The director, producer and stars Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Jason Momoa, Rebecca Ferguson and Sharon Duncan-Brewster ponder it all with Awardsline’s Joe Utichi.
