Jesus. What a cast so far.Javier Bardem Joins Timothee Chalamet in ‘Dune’ Reboot
Bardem will play Stilgar, the leader of a tribe that helps Chalamet’s character. Might as well be a perfect casting.
Anyone who has an issue with Villeneuve casting at this point can fuck right off. If he saw something in Zendaya fine with me
Feels like people are using the race thing with the girl but I think really it's just people didn't like that she was playing some trope in a comic book movie that wasn't very fleshed out or particularly interesting. Not sure that's really on her and I think in general the casting for this has been good so we'll see.Are we going to get another tantrum about a non white actor getting a fremen role?
Villeneuve is known to be quite involved in actors casting / direction on a daily basis during both filming and production. He likes to talk with cast before scenes and getting along with them. A lot of Hollywood movies nowadays, director is like Jesus and you have to get through his twelve apostles (assistants, writers, development execs, producers, etc) to just make him notice your existence.As far as the casting choice... Villeneuve usually is spot on, I am hoping he sees something with her he can adjust.
Its more like replace white male character with a white female character and have her love interest be a black man. All the time. Thankfully that didn't happen here.... and there it fucking is.
In 2019 America, the only acceptable love interest for a white man is a black woman. every. fucking. time. It barely happens in real life; it doesnt follow the story; its jarring and fucking stupid. Its like "we're remaking Cleopatra but this time we're having Samuel L Jackson play Cleopatra and youre a racist asshole if you object"
I let you motherfuckers have Heimdall, cause at the end of the day who cares about Asgard's doorman. But Chani? Theyre making Chani black now? No. Chani was hot, and was described in detail.
When a movie inserts forced diversity it might still be good. When a movie inserts a white male, black female relationship it means theyve swallowed so much SJW koolaid the whole thing is doomed.
Lifelong Dune fan - greatest sci fi series of all times.
his real name is Óscar Isaac Hernández Estrada, he's half guatamalan and half cuban. hiring him automatically deflects any production from accusations of white washingWhats the draw with Oscar Isaac?

Good in Ex Machina
