Last August, Denis Villeneuve said he was “optimistic” about Dune 2 is happening, claiming that Warner Bros. and Legendary were “100 percent late” Dune and reportedly felt that the film “would need a very bad box office result” for a sequel not to be made. But it’s not the same as getting an official green light, but here’s what Ann Sarnoff said when Deadline asked if Dune 2 has passed:What a curious statement. On the one hand, Ann Sarnoff may just be alluding to the way Denis Villeneuve Dune the film only covers the first half of its source material. So, because it ends in a different place than the original Dune the story ends, maybe Sarnoff says the stage is set for this sci-fi world to be revisited at some point. On the other hand, what if Sarnoff’s teasing was anything more direct, like it was alluding to Dune ending with a message like “To be continued…”?
Cinephiles who decide to check out Dune in theaters or on HBO Max from tonight will learn soon enough if such a message is added at the end of the film. That said, let’s not forget that at the IMAX projection of Dunethe first 10 minutes of last summer the movie was called Dune: part one, indicating that Warner Bros. was considering at least Second part, if not go ahead. Once again, officially speaking, Dune 2 is not yet a sure thing, but as it stands, the likelihood of that happening certainly seems higher than not. Whether Dune 2 would also get a budget of $ 165 million as its predecessor would have received is a whole different matter.
that of Denis Villeneuve Dune has an ensemble cast which includes Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Stellan Skarsgård, Zendaya, Javier Bardem, Josh Brolin Dave Bautista and Jason Momoa. The film has received a mostly positive reception (ranking 85% among critics on Rotten Tomatoes) and has already raised more than $ 129 million worldwide through screenings abroad. With the potential Dune 2, there is also a spinoff series in the works for HBO Max called Dune: brotherhood.
