Denis Villeneuve is currently working on a new remake of Dune and it’s one of my most anticipated movies of 2020.
Dune was first made into a movie back in 1984 by David Lynch and it became something of a cult hit over the years.
That film starred Kyle MacLachlan who went on to work with Lynch in the Twin Peaks series.
MacLachlan has now opened up about what he thinks of Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming Dune movie during an interview with MovieWeb.
During this interview, MacLachlan gave his full support to Timothée Chalamet who’s playing Paul Atreides in the 2020 movie.
MacLachlan played Paul in David Lynch’s Dune back in 1984.
Kyle MacLachlan is looking forward to the Dune remake
There will be a couple of us out there, running around, there’s plenty of room I think.
Timothée I think will do a fantastic job, I’m very much looking forward to the vision he has.
David Lynch is, of course, a very specific vision, so this will be something completely different I’m sure.
Why not have both stand on their own merits?
I agree with everything that MacLachlan had to say about both Villeneuve’s Dune and Lynch’s version of the story.
They’re both adapting the 1965 science fiction novel by American author Frank Herbert.
However, Lynch and Villeneuve had very different visions for their movies and they should both be celebrated.
What do you think about this? Are you looking forward to Denis Villeneuve’s Dune remake?
