We already know that David Lynch isn't exactly thrilled about the upcoming Dune reboot. However, Kyle MacLachlan has made it clear that he doesn't share the director's sentiments. The lead star of the original Dune film adaptation has expressed his excitement over the Denis Villeneuve movie.

MacLachlan recently spoke to Comicbook.com where he admitted that he can't wait to see the movie.

"I am looking forward to seeing it. I think Denis is such a wonderful filmmaker, he's put together a really cool cast," MacLachlan said. In addition to that, he shared how he actually enjoyed reading Frank Herbert's works.

"I loved the books when I first read them back in, I think I was 15, so like 1972-73. I remain a fan, particularly of the first book, it's one of my favorite books if not favorite book ever, I would read it every year," MacLachlan said before adding that this influenced his opinion about the reboot. 

"I come at it from a different perspective than David, of course, and I think the book is so rich and the relationships are so interesting. There are so many ways to interpret it. I'm looking forward to seeing what he does," MacLachlan concluded.

MacLachlan originally played Paul Atreides in Lynch's movie. The character will now be portrayed by Timothee Chalamet in the upcoming film.

Dune is scheduled for release on December 18.
