Denis Villeneuve & Christopher Nolan Discuss Dune and Big Screen Cinema in 30-Minute Conversation

Denis Villeneuve & Christopher Nolan Discuss Dune and Big Screen Cinema in 30-Minute Conversation
As Christopher Nolan prepares to shoot his next film Oppenheimer, starring Cillian Murphy and Emily Blunt, he found time to show his support for another director who knows a thing or two working on a massive scale. As Denis Villeneuve’s Dune arrives in the United States, the two gathered for a DGA conversation about the Frank Herbert adaptation.

Villeneuve discusses preparing and how the book was his bible while noting the elephant in the room that was Star Wars and trying to bring something fresh at every turn. When discussing the potential sequels, the director notes that because Blade Runner 2049 wasn’t a box office success (though Nolan proclaimed his love for it), Warner Bros. were cold on investing in a sequel, but he “was grateful it happened this way” due to the immense workload. (Nolan adds he would never make two films back to back.)
