HOLLYWOOD – Denis Villeneuve came under fire for wearing a horrible scarf.
The film world was reeling yesterday when a picture revealed Denis Villeneuve wearing a shit scarf. One Hollywood insider told the Studio Exec EXCLUSIVELY:
This could be the end of the Canadian. You don’t come back from a scarf like that. I mean what was he thinking?
The Blade Runner 2049 director wore the black scarf while apparently directing Javier Bardem who plays Stilgar in the new adaptation of Dune. This seemed to make everyone angrier. Scarf critic Gerald Waters told the Exec:
I mean, he’s in the desert! How cold can his neck be?
However, Waters also told us that Denis Villeneuve has form. “A few years ago, he wore this scarf… I don’t even know how to describe it,” Waters gags a little. “It was at the premiere of Arrival. I couldn’t believe it. I said what the hell do you think you’re doing? He said oh it’s an accessory. An accessory to fashion murder. And he laughed. He actually thought I was joking.”
David Fincher, Denis’ best friend, told the Exec that we should all give the Blade Runner 2049 director the benefit of the doubt. “He’s like a child, he hasn’t got a clue,” said the Fight Club director.
Dune will premiere at The Venice Film Festival.
