Actress Rebecca Ferguson talked about her character in the Dune remake and how he will be different from the way he was approached in Frank Herbert’s novels.
“The plot fully respects Jessica’s power, even though she doesn’t have as many rights as the king and her son gave her. But Denis [Villeneuve, the film’s director, n. Red.] Was inspired to give him authority when needed, ”Ferguson said.
The actress wanted to emphasize that in the new adaptation this female character – the concubine of Duke Leto I Atreides – will be approached in a different way from the one in the books and the original film, directed by David Lynch.
“Frank Herbert wrote this story in an environment where there is – and is understandable – an imbalance in gender equality. The books were great. They have a lot of beautiful moments. But one of the things that Denis and the writers have now considered is that the story was written in different times than today when the emphasis is on gender equality, ”she explained.
The movie will be released on December 18, 2020, will adapt only to the first part of the novel Dune. Also in the cast will be Timothée Chalamet, Oscar Isaac, Jason Momoa, Dave Bautista, Javier Bardem, and Charlotte Rampling.
