Jordanian women, you are in for a treat, again as Timothée Chalamet has come back to your country to film the sequel of Denis Villeneuve's 2021 sci-fi adventure film Dune. In the original installment Jordan’s Wadi Rum served as the Atreides family’s newly inherited planet Arrakis and Abu Dhabi’s Liwa desert was used to form parts of Arrakis. These locations have been expected to continue being used for Dune 2.
While in the Wadi Rum, Chalamet decided to take a side trip to Petra, one of the Wonders of the World, on Tuesday, posing in front of the Treasury, also known as Al Khazna, a recognizable and iconic landmark. He seemed to be there early in the morning, before the throngs of tourists that typically invade the site arrived. He posed in a hoodie and held up his hand in a "peace" sign. Needless the say, the post on Instagram was very successful and the young actor's fans from the Region commented and praised him for being in Jordan.
The post has received almost 4 million likes to date, with comments from fans in every language, but mostly in English and Arabic.
Dune 2 is also directed by Villeneuve and is expected to premiere in the UK in early November of 2023.
