Just a week and a half after sharing photos of himself on the set of the film, Timothée Chalamet took to social media once again to announce that Dune: Part Two has officially wrapped production.
In a new photograph shared to his Instagram, Chalamet can be seen with his father, Marc Chalamet (referred to as “desert dad” in the caption), while the two flash a peace sign overlooking a vast desert. Production on the film began earlier this year, with the crew having already wrapped in Budapest, Hungary, and Italy. Filming also took place in the United Arab Emirates, which is likely where Chalamet was in his previous photograph.
“This follow-up film will explore the mythic journey of Paul Atreides as he unites with Chani and the Fremen while on a warpath of revenge against the conspirators who destroyed his family,” reads the synopsis. “Facing a choice between the love of his life and the fate of the known universe, he endeavors to prevent a terrible future only he can foresee.”
Dune: Part Two is once again being directed by Denis Villeneuve. The returning cast includes Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, and Stephen McKinley Henderson. Joining them is Christopher Walken as Emperor Shaddam IV, Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan, Austin Butler as Feyd-Rautha, Léa Seydoux as Lady Margot, and Souheila Yacoub as Shishakli.
Following its release, Dune went on to garner critical acclaim from fans and critics alike. Earlier this year, it also racked up a whopping 10 Academy Award nominations. It won six of them, including Best Original Score, Best Sound, Best Film Editing, and Best Cinematography.
