'Dune' Is Heading to Europe for Additional Shooting in August

Dune is getting more material.

The highly anticipated Denis Villeneuve project, which co-stars Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya and Oscar Isaac, is heading to Hungary to film additional content this summer, Deadline reported on Thursday (June 18).

The film, which is slated to be released on December 18, is not planning for a delay in release schedule.

“I understand that the extra shooting will not cause a delay and it will still release on that date. On a pic 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 we hear is sizing up to be epic,” the report reads.

“The team are 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.”

Oscar Isaac confirmed the news in an interview on the same day.

“We’re going to do some additional shooting in mid August…they’re saying in Budapest in Hungary. I saw some things cut together and it just looks amazing. Denis [Villeneuve] is a real artist and it will be exciting to see it come together. It’s kind of wild that we’re doing some additional shooting a few months before it’s supposed to come out, but that happened with Star Wars as well,” he said.
