Dune is shaping up to be one of the biggest films of 2021. Besides the film’s lead Timothee Chalamet, another major draw for the sci-fi film is Guardians of the Galaxy’s Dave Bautista. Bautista did everything possible to become part of the sci-fi epic. The Dune star revealed the sweet story behind getting involved in the Denis Villeneuve film.
For Dave Bautista, 2021 is shaping up to be a big year for his career. The release of Dune and Zack Snyder's Army of the Dead is a triumph for the actor. He admitted to really wanting those roles, especially the Warner Bros. epic. In telling how he got involved in the Denis Villeneuve-helmed film, Bautista said:
During the Collider interview, Dave Bautista gushed over the film’s script. He admitted to being “blown away” by the world created for Dune on the page. Bautista went on to praise Denis Villeneuve and Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn for their ability to craft vast universes and galaxies for movies.
Reading Dave Bautista’s story proved how much he is trying to grow as an actor. As he mentioned, getting roles in his current slate of films showed how much he’s progressed since breaking away from the WWE. The recent announcement surrounding his role in Knives Out 2 is another sign of his progression.
Despite the HBO Max release drama between Denis Villeneuve and Warner Bros., the Dune star was appreciative of being selected for his role. Viewers will have to wait until Oct. 1 to see a new side of the actor when Dune arrives in theaters and on HBO Max.
