    Brolin has talked about his work on the book with Variety saying, “The writing is very different, tonally. Sometimes it’s tongue-in-cheek, sometimes it’s descriptive, sometimes it’s a dialogue and sometimes it’s a poem.” Josh and cinematographer Greig Fraser produced the book in collaboration. 

    Although the internet is having its fun with this added piece of poetry Timothée Chalamet remains the silent muse. The Dune heartthrob is yet to publicly share his thoughts on Brolin’s poetic tribute to him.

    While Brolin’s poetic prowess may be up for debate, the cinematic excitement for the sequel is palpable. All the fans can gear up for the release of ‘Dune 2‘ in Australia on March 14.
