‘Dune: Part Two’ Gets The Green Light From Warner Bros. And Legendary

Following the successful release of ‘Dune’, Warner Bros. and Legendary have officially confirmed that Denis Villeneuve will complete the story with the second part being released on 20th October 2023.

I just received news from Legendary that we are officially moving forward with Dune: Part Two. It was a dream of mine to adapt Frank Herbert’s Dune and I have the fans, the cast, and crew, Legendary and Warner Bros. to thank for supporting this dream. This is only the beginning.

‘Dune’ stars Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides alongside an all-star cast that includes Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Jason Momoa, Josh Brolin and Zendaya. But it only told the first part of Frank Herbert’s seminal 1965 sci-fi novel of the same name. Villeneuve originally wanted to film the two parts back-to-back but Warners amd Legendary resisted, waiting to see if the project was financially viable before paying out.

Legendary is pleased to officially move forward with Dune: Part Two…once again based on the amazing books written by Frank Herbert. We would not have gotten to this point without the extraordinary vision of Denis and the amazing work of his talented crew, the writers, our stellar cast, our partners at Warner Bros., and of course the fans! Here’s to more Dune.

Legendary

Denis Villeneuve has crafted a film that is both visually extraordinary and emotionally transporting, as evidenced by its global success both critically and at the box office. We are thrilled to continue on this journey with Denis and his cast and crew, and our partners at Legendary, and can’t wait to bring the next chapter of this epic tale to theaters in October 2023.
