Timothee shared that while he had seen Kyle MacLachlan‘s performance in the 1984 Dune adaptation, he tried to make the character his own.
“I have huge respect for Kyle’s performance and I love that version,” he said, per Variety. “I was fortunate enough to work on other projects that have prior iterations with great actors in them. But when Denis Villeneuve asks you to do a movie and do his version of the movie, you forget all that.”
He went on to say that making the movie was “the honor of a lifetime” and that he hoped to continue the story in a sequel.
“I hope we can do a second one,” he said. “That would be a dream.”
Timothee also shared that he worked on his “sandwalk” with choreographer Benjamin Millepied and said, “Hopefully we’ll see TikToks of people doing the same stuff.”
The actor was spotted arriving at the festival alongside his co-stars Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Javier Bardem, Rebecca Ferguson and director Denis Villeneuve. Check out all the photos in the gallery below!
