Jason Momoa isn’t just Aquaman, he’s also Duncan Idaho in Denis Villeneuve’s highly anticipated Dune. The actor recently said he’d like to see the first installment last 4-6 hours!
One month before the theatrical release of Dune, the excitement begins to be felt! Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Frank Herbert’s cult novel is one of the most anticipated sci-fi films of the year.
Postponed for a year due to the health crisis, the feature film brings together a 5-star cast with Timothée Chalamet, Josh Brolin, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Stellan Skarsgard and Jason Momoa.
The latter slips into the costume of Duncan Idaho, fencing master of the Atreides house. A virtuoso swordsman, he is also one of the lieutenants of Leto Atréides (Oscar Isaac) and a mentor for Paul (Chalamet). Very attached to the latter, he is ready to do anything to protect him.
They should do a 4 to 6 hour version for this first episode of Dune.
In the columns of New York Times, Jason Momoa recently mentioned the work of Denis Villeneuve for this first part of Dune. According to the actor, it would take a version of 4 to 6 hours to fully grasp the director’s vision.
“It was really a cool movie to make. I don’t want us to cut it down, I want us to be able to see Denis Villeneuve’s vision as a whole. You know what they should do “They should do a 4-6 hour version for that first episode of Dune so viewers can watch it like a TV series.”
If it is difficult to imagine a cinema version of 4 or 6 hours for Dune, we can imagine that Denis Villeneuve will release a long version, like Lord of the Rings or the recent Justice League by Zack Snyder.
