Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ Heading Back to Europe for Additional Shooting in August

Deadline reports that Dune, Denis Villeneuve’s big-budget sci-fi pic with Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya and Oscar Isaac, is heading to Hungary to film additional material this summer.


Warner Bros has the Legendary Entertainment-produced movie dated for December 18, 2020 in the U.S. It is reported that the extra shooting will not cause a delay and it will still release on that date. On a film of this scale and ambition, shooting additional footage is pretty much par for the course and isn’t an indication of anything problematic with the existing material, which seems sizing up to be epic.

The team is planning to head back to Budapest, Hungary, where the movie shot in 2019 at Origo Film Studios. Filming has also taken part in Jordan and Norway, and initially wrapped back in July last year.
