After rocketing to fame as Edward Cullen within the Twilight films, Robert Pattinson took a break from blockbusters to do smaller, extra inventive movies, maybe to get folks to have a look at him as one thing apart from the sparkly romance vampire. It labored, and he’s returned to tentpole films as none apart from Bruce Wayne in The Batman. From right here, he can mainly write his personal ticket.
Speaking to Variety, Pattinson mentioned that he needed to work with The Batman director Matt Reeves for some time earlier than donning the cape and cowl; he was notably impressed with Reeves’ Planet of the Apes films. “I love those Apes movies so much,” Pattinson mentioned, exhibiting off his good style. “There’s only been two movies — well, three now — where I wanted to do a sequel: the Apes movies, Sicario and Dune.”
The Apes films appear to have come to an finish, at the least for now. But director Denis Villenueve is making a sequel to final yr’s sci-fi hit Dune, persevering with to adapt the guide by Frank Herbert. And if Pattinson needed to leap aboard that factor, I believe a whole lot of followers can be happy. We even know what position he’s be good for: Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen, the villainous nephew of Vladimir Harkonnen who faces off with Timothée Chalamet’s Paul Atreides on the climax of the story. Make it occur, Hollywood!
Original Dune star Kyle MacLachlan fascinated by showing in Denis Villeneuve’s sequel
And Pattinson isn’t the one actor up for a task within the subsequent Dune film. Kyle MacLachlan, who performed Paul Atreides again in David Lynch’s 1984 Dune film, is down to look if requested.
“I think it’s totally up to Denis and whatever he wants to do,” MacLachlan advised ComicBook.com. “I watched his film, it was great, I enjoyed it. Had a tremendous sense of nostalgia, to be honest, watching some of the sequences and remembering stuff that I did with our cast in 1983. So it was a trip down memory lane for me, but I thoroughly enjoyed it, and who knows? Who knows what he’s got up his sleeve.”
Surely Villeneuve might squeeze MacLachlan in as a face-dancer or a dignitary of some kind? Make it occur, Hollywood!
Dune: Part II shoots this summer season and is due out on October 20, 2023.
