Florence Pugh confesses that they had to separate her from Timothée Chalamet during the filming of ‘Dune 2’: "they were having too much fun"

I highly doubt that there is any kind of doubt about the fact that ‘Dune: Part Two’ is going to be one of the great movies of 2023. And it is that the return to Arrakis by Denis Villeneuvein addition to an audiovisual show at the level of its predecessor, promises a good dose of dramatic intensity boosted by a top notch cast.

Florence the rambunctious

Among its members, in addition to names such as Austin Butler, Javier Bardem, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson or Josh Brolin, there are two of the great stars destined to carry the weight of the future of Hollywood on their shoulders: nothing less than Timothée Chalametwho reprises his role as Paul Atreides, and the newcomer to the space epic Florence Pugh.

But having this luxury couple on set, who already worked together in the latest and fantastic adaptation of Greta Gerwig’s ‘Little Women’, has a price to pay that forced Villeneuve to separate them in different trailers. The reason, as Pugh herself has confessed in a report dedicated to her figure and published in Time magazine, is that “they were having too much fun”.

'Dune' and its overwhelming cinematography: this is how Greig Fraser turned the space epic into an Oscar-worthy visual experience

The French Canadian director He has not hesitated to dismiss the British as “unruly”but claims that once the cameras are turned on, he has “great strength.”

“Despite his youth, he has determination and confidence. You feel like you’re working with someone who can go anywhere and do anything emotionally in the most subtle and precise way. He’s a diamond in the rough.”

Of course, Florence’s filmography only confirms Denis Villeneuve’s words. The desire to see what they have managed to do together in ‘Dune: Part Two’ is immense, and we will only have to wait until next november 3 to check.
