Timothée Chalamet is officially back, sharing a new photo of himself on the set of Dune: Part Two as production continues.
In the latest photo on his official Instagram, Chalamet shared a look at himself staring out at the desert, wearing a black hooded long coat that has a skeletal outline on the back of it. Production on the movie started earlier this year, with the crew having already finished shooting in Budapest, Hungary, and Italy. Now, filming is set to start in the United Arab Emirates, likely where Chalamet is in his photo.
“This follow-up film will explore the mythic journey of Paul Atreides as he unites with Chani and the Fremen while on a warpath of revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family,” the synopsis reads. “Facing a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, he endeavors to prevent a terrible future only he can foresee.”
Dune: Part Two is once again being directed by Villeneuve. The returning cast includes Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, and Stephen McKinley Henderson. Joining them is Christopher Walken as Emperor Shaddam IV, Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan, Austin Butler as Feyd-Rautha, Léa Seydoux as Lady Margot, and Souheila Yacoub as Shishakli.
Following its release, Dune went on to garner critical acclaim from fans and critics alike. Earlier this year, it also racked up 10 Academy Award nominations. It won six of them, including Best Original Score, Best Sound, Best Film Editing, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design, and Best Visual Effects.
