Jason Momoa, who worked on Game of Thrones and DC, is convinced that Dune will become the most important thing he has done yet.
After the first trailer, the excitement for the premiere of Dune grows more every day. With a dream cast, Denis Villeneuve has shaped an adaptation of Frank Herbert's novel of the same name, aspiring to become the quintessential cinematic storyteller of science fiction in recent years. During a new press conference, CinemaBlend picked up Jason Momoa's words about the film; the actor again hints that the delivery will be much bigger than everything he has worked on previously … low blow for Game of Thrones and Aquaman?
In Dune, Jason Momoa plays Duncan Idaho, the master of arms in the service of House Atreides, faithful to Duke Leto and committed to caring for the little heir, Paul. Already in the trailer we witnessed Momoa carrying Timothée Chalamet with great happiness when they meet again on the desert planet Arrakis. For the character, the actor had to get rid of his characteristic beard, due to the need to give a more dashing appearance.
The actor's words
During the recent press conference, Jason Momoa spoke about his experience on the set of Dune and the gigantic scope the film will have for the entertainment industry. "How does this compare? Well, I have never worked with a director of this scale. Denis is a cinematic genius and by and large all of the action stuff I've done has been nowhere, not even remotely close to Denis. Just looking at some of the moves he would make, going behind the camera and seeing Greig's [cinematographer] eye, with Denis, I've never seen anything so beautiful in a fight scene. Generally, the things I do don't look so good. So thank you Denis ”, he revealed.
It is not the first time that Jason Momoa bathes Denis Villeneuve and Dune in flowers. In mid-April he commented during a meeting with Ellen DeGeneres: “It was like shooting on another planet. Villeneuve recorded it. It was an honor to do this with him, and he's a pretty amazing cast, I've never been a part of something so big. "
