Vanity Fair Provides a First Look at Timothée Chalamet in 'Dune'

Vanity Fair has a new article about Timothée Chalamet in the upcoming Dune, which opens in theaters December 18, 2020.

...today we begin with the central hero: Paul Atreides, a child of privilege raised by a powerful family, but not one strong enough to protect him from the dangers that await.

As the Atreides family leaves the oceanic world of Caladan to take over scorching Arrakis, they are also becoming prey to the brutal rival House Harkonnen, which seeks to exploit the desert world they are about to inherit. House Atreides is just one more part of the landscape to annihilate.

“The immediately appealing thing about Paul was the fact that in a story of such detail and scale and world-building, the protagonist is on an anti-hero’s-journey of sorts,” Chalamet said.

In other words, he’s not dreaming of adventure. He’s resisting it. Afraid of it.

“He thinks he’s going to be sort of a young general studying his father and his leadership of a fighting force before he comes of age, hopefully a decade later, or something like that.” Chalamet said. But fate has a different timetable for him. And he may possess powers even his trainers could not anticipate.

Dune is being directed by Denis Villeneuve and tells the story of Paul Atreides (Chalamet), a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence--a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential--only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

Villeneuve directed both Arrival and Blade Runner 2049, as well as the excellent Sicario, so we're thinking that he has what it takes to bring the science-fiction action/adventure movie to the big screen.
