The director also noted that this is the end of the journey. For his partner Tania Lapointe, also a producer, this moment is important. “These are chapters of our lives that we share with the actors and all the craftsmen. Some, like Patrice Vermette, have been part of our lives since 2018, so it is a move to close the file. If there is eventually a third part, I hope to relive this experience with this wonderful team.” »

Sick actors, optimistic forecasts

Timothée Chalamet, who plays the lead role of Paul Atreides, was also scheduled to be in Montreal on Wednesday. Unfortunately, illness prevented him from doing so.

“Timothy is very sick. Everyone is dropping like flies. He's not alone: ​​Zendaya no longer has a voice. Austin is sick too. We've been touring a lot.” […] Warner went all in [pour la promotion] He believes a lot in the film. Beautiful ! “, explained Denis Villeneuve.
