First look at ‘Dune’

Variety has released the first still from ‘Dune’ featuring Timothée as Paul Atreides. They will also release a more in-depth look tomorrow, so be on the lookout for that. Read more at their site.

Tomorrow, Vanity Fair will provide an even more expansive exploration of Villeneuve’s quest to bring Dune to the screen, but today we begin with the central hero: Paul Atreides, a child of privilege raised by a powerful family, but not one strong enough to protect him from the dangers that await.

As the Atreides family leaves the oceanic world of Caladan to take over scorching Arrakis, they are also becoming prey to the brutal rival House Harkonnen, which seeks to exploit the desert world they are about to inherit. House Atreides is just one more part of the landscape to annihilate.

“The immediately appealing thing about Paul was the fact that in a story of such detail and scale and world-building, the protagonist is on an anti-hero’s-journey of sorts,” Chalamet said.

In other words, he’s not dreaming of adventure. He’s resisting it. Afraid of it.

“He thinks he’s going to be sort of a young general studying his father and his leadership of a fighting force before he comes of age, hopefully a decade later, or something like that.” Chalamet said. But fate has a different timetable for him. And he may possess powers even his trainers could not anticipate.

New interview in British Vogue

Since Timothée’s play ‘4000 Miles’ was supposed to come out in a couple of days (but has been postponed to as of yet unknown dates), Timmy and his costar Eileen Atkins were interviewed for the May 2020 issue of British Vogue. You can read the interview here and see a couple of photoshoot images in the gallery.

That Timothée Chalamet’s West End debut has been delayed due to the coronavirus crisis will only add to the frenzy of anticipation around his eventual arrival on the London stage. Originally slated to open on 6 April, the Old Vic’s production of Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles has been postponed until shuttered theatres can reopen to the public. And when that day comes, Chalamet’s co-star Dame Eileen Atkins has an idea of exactly who will be filing through the doors to take their seats before curtain up.

[…]

The duo gave Vogue an insight into the theatrical event of 2020 days before rehearsals began for the scheduled seven-week run of the play, in which they star as a grandmother and her grandson, both grappling with grief. “There was something exciting about doing a play that feels very New York in London,” diehard theatre fan Chalamet, 24, says of relocating to take up the role of lost 21-year-old Leo-Joseph Connell, who shows up on his widowed grandmother’s doorstep in Manhattan out of the blue.

‘The French Dispatch’ has been postponed

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, ‘The French Dispatch’ has been pushed back to October. Read more at IndieWire.

Wes Anderson’s “The French Dispatch” is having its theatrical release delayed from July 24 to October 16. The move shifts Anderson’s latest into the thick of awards season. The majority of Anderson’s recent releases have all been in the spring or summer, including “Isle of Dogs,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” and “Moonrise Kingdom.” The original July 24 release date led many in the film industry to believe Searchlight would world premiere “The French Dispatch” at the 2020 Cannes Film Festival, but that event has been postponed until future dates that still haven’t been determined.

It is with great sadness that we are temporarily closing The Old Vic in line with the latest government advice on Coronavirus (COVID-19) and postponing our production of Amy Herzog’s 4000 Miles until theatres are able to re-open.

If you have tickets you don’t need to do anything at this point – we will be in touch as soon as we can with more details about the new performance dates.
