Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

We knew it was only a matter of time before Denis Villeneuve‘s upcoming “Dune” reboot for Warner Bros. Pictures also got pushed back from it’s theatrical release. We weren’t expecting it to be for reshoots, however.

According a report this morning, the production is headed to Budapest Hungary to film additional material to complete the picture.

The Budapest stages have been utilized for desert settings, such as “The Martian,” “Blade Runner 2049,” and several other films.

Oscar Isaac, who is playing Duke Leto Atredies in the film, confirmed the reshoots to Deadline in a video interview, saying:

We’re going to do some additional shooting in mid August… they’re saying in Budapest in Hungary. I saw some things cut together and it just looks amazing. Denis [Villeneuve] is a real artist and it will be exciting to see it come together. It’s kind of wild that we’re doing some additional shooting a few months before it’s supposed to come out, but that happened with Star Wars as well.”


The report goes on to say that “Dune” will WILL still be making it’s December 18th 2020 release date, but we find that highly doubtful.

We’ll let you know what we hear about this and other news.
