“I made a conscious decision, I did not re-read the book or re-watch the David Lynch version or the three-part series, I just wanted to make sure I was influenced by the actual script, it was a conscious decision.
“We wanted our work to be seamless so it didn’t take it out of the movie, I think we spent so much time trying to get every part of the movie to be seamless it kind of worked out.”
The team added that the flying and crashing was the “biggest challenge” of Dune, as well as the sandworm and the sand used being “the most expensive”.
