Ethan Hawke and Robert Eggers tease a... gaseous tone for The Northman. Denis Villeneuve offers an update on his Dune: Part Two script. Get new looks at Nope and the season finale of Star Trek: Discovery. Plus, what’s coming on Raised by Wolves. Spoilers get!
In the latest issue of Empire Magazine (via /Film), Ethan Hawke and Robert Eggers compare The Northman to Apocalypse Now, only with more “burping and farting” Vikings.
It begins with squawking ravens; within minutes there are men crawling about on all fours like dogs, burping and farting.
And [The Northman] is reaching for so much. It’s like [Eggers] found an ancient Viking scroll in a cave off the coast of Norway or something. It’s an amazing text. I’ve often complained, ‘How come nobody even tries to make Apocalypse Now any more?’”
In conversation with Collider, Denis Villeneuve revealed his script for Dune: Part Two is now “mostly” finished.
The screenplay is finished mostly, but it’s always a work in progress. It’ll be a work in progress until final cut, but I will say it’s solidified. I have a script in my hands. We are in prep right now.
