'Dune' Will Definitely Get a Sequel Movie, Under 1 Condition

The upcoming movie Dune is expected to hit theaters and HBO Max on October 22, and director Denis Villeneuve is revealing info about the sequel.

“There’s no such thing as Dune 1 and Dune 2. It’s Dune: Part One and Dune: Part Two,” he told Total Film when asked.

“So the first thing was to prove that there was a beautiful, popular movie that can exist, and I think that I proved that – everybody at Warner Bros and Legendary, they are 100 percent behind the project. They feel that it would need a really bad outcome at the box office to not have a Dune: Part Two, because they love the movie. They are proud of the movie, so they want the movie to move forward. And they still did half of it. So, you know, I’m very optimistic,” Dennis added, citing that the first Dune movie would have to bomb at the box office to not merit a second.

Dune is a 1965 novel by Frank Herbert and the book was turned into a 1984 movie starring Kyle MacLachlan.

A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides (Timothee Chalamet), a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
