Dune, the science-fiction movie by Denis Villeneuve starring Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson and Jason Momoa among many other stars is set to have additional filming take place mid-August 2020 without pushing the release date back as Oscar Isaac, playing Duke Leto in the picture, has confirmed in an interview with Deadline.
“We’re going to do some additional shooting in mid August… they’re saying in Budapest in Hungary”
Due to COVID-19 measures already permitting Legendary Pictures to continue polishing their first-out-of-two-part-story in Hungary, the crew will head to the Eastern European country to wrap up production. Furthermore, since the team will be conditioned by strict safety protocols, it will be interesting for other production companies to pay attention to how Dune carries out its shooting as an example for future films that will have to shoot in similar conditions.
“It’s kind of wild that we’re doing some additional shooting a few months before it’s supposed to come out, but that happened with Star Wars as well.”Oscar Isaac on the Dune additional filming
Therefore, we will see the final result on the original release date of December 18th, 2020, as planned, and we can’t wait to see what Villeneuve has to offer with all the excitement built around the movie.
