Dune’s Josh Brolin Reacts To His Character’s Disappearance In Part One

Although Denis Villeneuve’s Dune only adapted the first half of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel, by the time the over-two-and-a-half-hour movie was over, there were quite a few casualties, including Oscar Isaac’s Duke Leto Atriedes and Jason Momoa’s Duncan Idaho. However, one character whose fate was left uncertain was Josh Brolin’s Gurney Halleck, as House Atreides’ weapons master was last seen running off into battle during the assault on Arrakeen. Brolin has since reacted to how his character just disappeared during the latter half of Dune

To be up front, it’s been confirmed that Gurney Halleck will return in Dune 2 (or Dune: Part Two, if you prefer), and Josh Brolin even asked his publicist to make sure his name was in the upcoming movie. On the subject of his time on the first Dune movie though, THR asked the actor if Gurney last moment was always going to be his sendoff or if that was more of an editorial choice. Brolin responded:

I can’t answer that. I don’t know. I mean, I think the book suggests that, but the book suggests a lot of things. The book suggests his singing, and even though that was something that we actually did, we didn’t use it. And that’s a major, major thing with Gurney. So having just read the second one about two weeks ago, I now know why that [sendoff] was the way it was. But it’s hard for me to answer that because when Denis is making these choices and having these dreams, talk about immersion, man. The guy gets lost in what he’s doing, completely. I’ve learned, especially as a producer, that post is just as important, if not more important, than what you’ve actually filmed. So I think it was a good place [to leave Gurney]. When I watched it, I was like, ‘Where did I go?’ I think that was the first reaction. ‘That’s it?’ But that was all selfish.
