Denis Villeneuve has another fan in the face of Dave Bautista as he revealed willingness to work often with the Dune filmmaker.

"If I could be a number one [on the callsheet] with Denis, I would do it for****** free,"

"I think that's how I could find out how good I could be. He brings out the best in me.

He sees me in a different light and sees the performer that I want to be. That might be how I solve the puzzle."

the 53-year-old bode farewell to Drax's role in Guardians of the Galaxy with relief as he wanted to move to less-silly parts.

"I'm so grateful for Drax. I love him," Bautista said of the role. "But there's a relief [that it's over].

I just don't know if I want Drax to be my legacy—it's a silly performance, and I want to do more dramatic stuff."
