for fans, news about Dune Part 2 comes in October 2023 is great. That means we will, for sure, see what happens next with Paul Atreides. For Dune Part 1 writerdirector Denis Villeneuve, and that’s great news, but unlike fans, he has a bigger problem: actually making a movie on time.
“It’s fantastic news, but it’s also a burden,” the director said Hollywood Reporter. “The good news is that a lot of work has already been done in terms of design, casting, locations and writing. So we don’t start from scratch. It’s not a long period, but I’ll try to face that challenge because it’s important to me that the audience sees it Second part as quickly as possible. It is not a sequel that is about another episode or another story with the same characters. There is actually a direct continuity in the first film. It’s the second part of the big big movie I’m trying to make. So the sooner the better. ”
In the same interview, Villeneuve admits that production is unlikely to begin until fthe whole of 2022 (“Even that would be fast,” he said) –lspends only a year on both production and post-production. It’s not impossible, of course, but it’s not the easiest with a film of that size. Fortunately, Villeneuve said he feels renewed thanks positive reactions to the film. “Knowing that people enjoy the film and that the film has sparked enthusiasm gives me the energy I need to work Second part,” he said. “Even from a very egocentric point of view, that joy gives me energy. That’s what I’ll say. If it was the other way around and no one showed up at the theater, I don’t know where I would have found the stamina needed to face the challenge Second part. ”
i, as we reported earlier, that energy could even be carried over to the next book in Frank Herbert’s Dune series, Dune Messiah. “If things go well with Second part, I could have foreseen the idea that I might make a third film, Dune Messiah. That would make sense to me, “said the director. “After that, to answer your question, I think I will make some more films; let’s call them big movies given their ambition and scope. And later, when I’m too tired to do it, I go back to some smaller projects. [Laughs.] But for now, I have the energy for this. ”
He’ll need it. The clock is ticking and Dune Part 2 it is planned to be in theaters in just two years from now October 20, 2023
