Dune 2: Denis Villeneuve says more about the sequel

Dune was without a doubt one of the greatest cinematic moments of the year 2021. Denis Villeneuve made everyone agree by proposing a successful adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel. Everyone who has seen the film, however, was frustrated to see the story end at a very promising moment, so that the sequel is eagerly awaited by the public.

“ We are in the process of finishing the scenario ”

Moreover, Warner Bros took a long time before confirming that Dune would indeed be entitled to a second opus but the studio formalized its decision at the end of last year. The group’s CEO, Toby Emmerich then explained: “Denis Villeneuve has designed a film that transports us, both visually and emotionally, as proven by its worldwide success both from the critics and the box office. »

Since then, we haven’t really had any news but Denis Villeneuve has just granted an interview to the Awards Chaster podcast of The Hollywood Reporter. The filmmaker confirms that he is working on this long-awaited sequel and explains his approach:

At the moment, we are finishing the script and we will start the storyboards soon. The second part is being designed by Patrice Vermette (this is the artistic director Editor’s note). It’s that beautiful part where you just dream, stare at the ceiling and think about the movie, I love that. I mean, it’s like the moment when anything is possible, before being overtaken by the shock of reality.

This is only the beginning…

Thank you to those who have experienced @dunemovie so far, and those who are going in the days and weeks ahead. We’re excited to continue the journey! pic.twitter.com/mZj68Hnm0A

We won’t know more for the moment but see you is already taken at the end of the year 2021 for this Dune 2. We should find some heavy casting since Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, or even Rebecca Ferguson should always be there, while Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin, or even Stellan Skarsgård could also come back.
