Dune – the sci-fi epic based on Frank Herbert’s seminal, series-spawning 1965 novel – is almost in cinemas after its pandemic-imposed delay. This film version has been a longtime passion project for director Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049). Set on desert planet Arrakis – where the spice melange is mined – Dune follows the fortunes of the Atreides family and its young heir, Paul. In Villeneuve’s movie, Timothée Chalamet (Call Me by Your Name, The French Dispatch) plays Paul, and it seems there was only one choice for that. "We said, ‘It’s Timothée [Chalamet].’ We didn’t have a Plan B," Villeneuve tells Total Film magazine in their new issue. "Honestly, if he had said no, I don’t know what I would have done. There would be no Dune, maybe."
