Kyle MacLachlan wants Dune sequel cameo

Kyle MacLachlan is open to making a cameo appearance in the 'Dune' sequel.

The 63-year-old actor played Paul Atreides in David Lynch's original 1984 movie, a role that was taken by Timothee Chalamet in Denis Villeneuve's hit remake last year, and revealed that he would happily make an appearance in the second film – which is slated for release in 2023.

Kyle told "I think it's totally up to Denis and whatever he wants to do."

The 'Twin Peaks' actor watched Villeneuve's adaptation of Frank Herbert's sci-fi novel and admits that it brought back some fond memories.

Kyle said: "I watched his film, it was great, I enjoyed it. Had a tremendous sense of nostalgia, to be honest, watching some of the sequences and remembering stuff that I did with our cast in 1983.

"So it was a trip down memory lane, but I thoroughly enjoyed it, and who knows? Who knows what he's got up his sleeve?"

Kyle previously suggested that the movie should have been remade as a TV series rather than on the big screen due to the complex nature of the source material.

He said: "I would lobby for three or more films, because it has that kind of potential to really open up. In my imagination, I always thought it would be great to approach it like a 'Game of Thrones' model, where you have seasons, or at least a 10-part series, or a 12-part series. You could really go from beginning to end."

MacLachlan also described the original film as a "flawed gem" and claimed that it would be difficult to recreate.

He explained: "My feelings about it evolve over time. I look at it as a flawed gem.

"It's stunning in so many ways. As a story, and trying to recreate that story, it's almost impossible. It's incredibly dense, and a little bit like a house of cards. If you leave out one element of the story or another, the structure tends to wobble, and you don't get the full effect."
