Jason Momoa is officially vying for the release of a full-length director’s cut of the upcoming sci-fi film Dune.

The film, which is based on the first half of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel of the same name stars Jason Momoa alongside Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgard, Charlotte Rampling, Oscar Isaac, Javier Bardem, Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet. In a recent interview with The New York Times, he said, “It was a cool movie. You know what they need to do? They need to make the four-to-six-hour version of the first half. It’s like, ‘Let’s watch the four-to-five-hour movie like a TV show; I can choose when I want to watch the whole thing.’ I want to see Denis’s whole vision. I don’t want it to be trimmed.”

There is currently no word on how long the actual final cut will be, but the upcoming film will be the first of two Dune films directed by Denis Villeneuve. Timothée Chalamet will play Paul Atreides, who is the son of a noble family tasked with protecting “the spice,” known as the most valuable substance on the desert planet of Arrakis.

Dune makes its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September 2021.

In other entertainment news, Netflix announced it is launching a docuseries on SpaceX’s upcoming all-civilian flight.
