Timothee Chalamet in talks to join Denis Villeneuve’s Dune

Hot property, Timothee Chalamet isn’t short of a few roles, especially since his breakthrough performance in Call Me By Your Name. The actor has now entered into talks to join Denis Villeneuve’s two-film adaptation of Dune.

If a deal can be struck, Chalamet would take on the lead as Paul Atreides. The story follows Paul whose noble family accepts control of the desert planet Arrakis. As the only planet capable of producing the highly valuable resource known as the spice melange which allows for space travel, control of Arrakis is highly contested amongst the noble families.

When the Atreides are betrayed, the story explores themes of politics, religion, and man’s relationship to nature as a betrayed Paul leads a rebellion to restore his family’s control of Arrakis

Timothée Chalamet in talks for Denis Villeneuve’s Dune

One of the undoubted supernova’s of 2017, Academy Award nominee Timothée Chalamet has just made the prospect of Denis Villeneuve’s Dune that much more tantalising by entering negotiations to join the ambitious adaptation of Frank Herbert’s opus.

Deadline are reporting that Chalamet will take the lead role of Paul Atreides, who was played by Kyle MacLachlan in David Lynch’s much maligned 1984 adaptation.

Dune is a science-fiction epic set far into the future, in a world in which feuding planetary societies fight for control over the most valuable substance in the universe; a spice called melange. The story follows Atreides, whose family are tasked with guarding the only planet upon which the spice can be found. However, it’s almost impossible to condense the story into a single line synopsis, as there’s so much in the source novels that Denis Villeneuve has announced the project will be more that one film.

Dune Remake Wants Timothee Chalamet in the Lead
Oscar-nominee Timothee Chalamet is in talks to play the lead in the upcoming Dune remake. Director Denis Villeneuve has been at the top of many studio's lists for a big project in the wake of successes like Arrival and Sicario.

Timothée Chalamet in Talks to Star in Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ Remake
Hollywood’s new go-to leading man Timothée Chalamet is in talks to star in Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming remake of “Dune,” which Legendary is targeting for production early next year, TheWrap has learned.

Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel was adapted in 1984 by David Lynch in a notoriously high-profile box office bomb that starred Kyle MacLachlan. Legendary acquired the film rights to “Dune” and its five sequels two years ago.

Like MacLachlan, Chalamet will play Paul Atreides, the son of a noble family who takes over the desert planet Arrakis — which is the only source of coveted spice melange.

Timothée Chalamet to Lead Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’

For the first year since 2013, a new Denis Villeneuve film will not hit theaters, but the French Canadian filmmaker has a good excuse. After revisiting one celebrated sci-fi property with Blade Runner 2049, he’s prepping another massive-budget project in the genre with a two-part adaptation of Dune and he’s now found his star, an it’s perhaps an unexpected choice.

Coming off of his Oscar-nominated role in Call Me by Your Name, Timothée Chalamet is set to become a franchise leading man in Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic, Deadline reports. The actor will take the role of Paul Atreides, who Kyle MacLachlan portrayed in David Lynch’s original Frank Herbert adaptation. Eric Roth has scripted this new version, which will be a two-part film, but both parts will be shot separately.

“Eric Roth wrote the first draft and I worked on my part afterwards,” the director recently told La Presse.

Frank Herbert’s Dune has nothing if not a fascinating history in regards to film adaptations, with many aborted attempts beginning in the ’70s paving the way for David Lynch’s Kyle MacLachlan-starring film in 1984. And then there’s of course Alejandro Jodorowsky’s doomed adaptation from the ’70s, which has become the stuff of legend. We learned back in 2016 […]

Review: "Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes" 25Th Anniversary Edition From Mvd

  • CinemaRetro
By Todd Garbarini

Movie-going audience members under the age of forty will not recall motion picture theatrical exhibition in the 1970s. It was a most interesting time when drive-ins and even first-run movie theaters would pair up an older feature film, generally one that was one to two years-old, with the main feature on a double-bill. A handful of theaters in my area used to engage in midnight showings of older films, too. One theater exclusively ran The Rocky Horror Picture Show (1975) for years while another alternated between Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968), Ralph Bakshi’s Wizards (1971), Led Zeppelin’s The Song Remains the Same (1976), David Lynch's art-house favorite Eraserhead (1977) and Alan Parker's Pink Floyd The Wall (1982). Other showcases included uncensored bloopers featuring Carol Burnett, the Three Stooges, and Abbott and Costello.

Can David Lynch (‘Twin Peaks’) still win Emmys for writing and directing despite the snub for Best Limited Series?

Can David Lynch (‘Twin Peaks’) still win Emmys for writing and directing despite the snub for Best Limited Series?
When the Emmy nominations were announced on Thursday morning, July 12, it looked like it might have been a complete shut out for “Twin Peaks.” The Showtime revival was snubbed for Best Limited Series and Kyle MacLachlan was also missing from Best Movie/Mini Actor. But when the entire list was released it turned out the show had done pretty well for itself in behind-the-scenes categories. It picked up nine total bids including Best Movie/Mini Directing for David Lynch and Best Movie/Mini Writing for Lynch and Mark Frost. Could the show still win those categories despite its snub in top categories? Yes, because “The Hour” is at hand.

2018 Emmy reactions: Our readers Love Adina Porter & Regina King, but cry foul over ‘Twin Peaks’ and Cody Fern snubs
Some of the biggest surprises in the 2018 Emmy nominations, which were announced on July 12, were in the races for movies and miniseries. We thought “Twin Peaks” would clean up, but while it swept Creative Arts categories and earned top noms for its writing and directing, it was snubbed for Best Limited Series and in all acting categories — no Kyle MacLachlan or Laura Dern! Our forum posters were also shocked by the absence of Al Pacino (“Paterno”) for Best Movie/Mini Actor, and they’re up in arms over Evan Peters‘s latest snub for “American Horror Story: Cult.”

But there were bright rays of hope. Our derbyites appreciated the surprise nominations for Regina King and especially Adina Porter (“Ahs: Cult”).

Emmys Shuts Out ’The Terror’ in Craft Categories, While Richly Rewarding Showy Series with Big Budgets

Emmys Shuts Out ’The Terror’ in Craft Categories, While Richly Rewarding Showy Series with Big Budgets
There’s a trend, that started with franchise blockbusters a decade ago and has been picked up in the world of TV, where studios associate size and scope with large budgets. Not that long ago it was not a source of pride how over-budget “Waterworld” went, or that Joss Whedon’s “Firefly” was sprawled over multiple stages and became Fox’s most expensive show ever.

Now HBO and Netflix want you to know their world-building shows push the cinematic boundaries of peak TV with a spare-no-expense attitude toward production values, and as a result are able to pad its Emmy nomination totals with a wide assortment of craft categories.

Epic fantasy, period and sci-fi world-building become easy boxes to check off for flagship series like “Westworld” (14 Btl noms), “Game of Thrones” (11 Btl noms), “The Handmaid’s Tale” (9 Btl noms), “The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story” (9 Btl noms), “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

Emmy Nominee Laura Dern on How ‘The Tale’ Goes Beyond Sexual Abuse
Laura Dern received her seventh Emmy nomination for the HBO movie “The Tale” on Thursday, with the celebrated actress telling Variety that the film goes beyond a story of sexual abuse.

“The theme beyond sexual abuse I think is the theme of the stories and narratives we tell ourselves and how we re-tell stories perhaps in order to survive them,” she said. “There’s this scene with Common and I where he refers to me in the fashion of being a victim, and I get very angry and say, ‘I’m not a victim!’ It is in the zeitgeist for
