Denis Villeneuve confirmed that the film “Dune: Part Two” will be shot before the “end of summer”.
The sequel to the director’s sci-fi epic will be released in 2023, and stars Timothy Shalame, Rebecca Ferguson and Zendaya will reprise their roles, and says his experience in the first film helped during the making of the film.
Denis told Empire magazine: “I will say that it is mostly designed. We are now helped by the fact that I am reviewing the universe for the first time. So I work with one team, everyone knows what to do, we know what it will look like.
“The film will be more challenging, but we know where we are going. And the script is written. So I feel confident. Honestly, the only big thing unknown to me right now is a pandemic. “
“Dune” received 10 Oscar nominations, but some fans were unhappy with the lack of attention to the evil Baron Vladimir Harkonnen (Stellan Skarsgård), which, according to Denis, was the result of the film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s novel in two films.
The 54-year-old director said: “When you adapt, you have to make bold choices to make things come to life. In the second I want to have more flexibility and it will be possible to go a little deeper into some of these details ”.
Denis continued: “It’s like a game of chess. Some new characters will be introduced in the second part, and I decided very early that this first part will be more about Paul Atreides and Bene Geserit, and about his first contact with another culture.
“The second part, there will be a lot more Harkonnen stuff.”
