The Big Dune 2 Request Javier Bardem Has For Director Denis Villeneuve

In addition to playing Desi Arnaz in Being the Ricardos and Blanco in The Good Boss, 2021 also saw Javier Bardem appearing in Dune as Stilgar, leader of the Fremen tribe at Sketch Tabr. Ahead of Denis Villeneuve’s latest movie premiering in theaters and on HBO Max, Bardem was hopeful he’d get the chance to reprise the role in a sequel, and luckily for him, his wish came true. With Dune: Part Two officially greenlit, Bardem how has a new request: getting to ride a sandworm in the upcoming movie.

When a book is adapted for film, naturally creative liberties need to be taken, including leaving certain scenes out of the cinematic telling. That said, Javier Bardem told Deadline that for Dune: Part Two, he’s hoping Denis Villeneuve will keep the moment from Frank Herbert’s novel that sees Stilgar atop a sandworm, the mightiest of Arrakis’ creatures. As the actor explained:

The only thing I’m asking is that I get to ride a sandworm. Denis told me he’s going to try to make that happen. That does happen in the book, by the way. Stilgar teaches Paul [Atreides] how to take the desert power, which is to domesticate those huge animals in order to use their force, their strength, and their huge size against the Harkonnen. Hopefully, that will happen.
