It seems impossible, but we are closer to the premiere of ‘Dune: part 2’ than that of its first part. In fact, the team has announced the end of filming this week and the post-production work is already beginning, which It will take them until November 3, 2023, two weeks earlier than planned. If there is no way to plan things ahead of time.
Don’t stop the machines
When Denis Villeneuve announced ‘Dune’, we were all shocked that he could encapsulate the entire epic in one film. The trick was kept up his sleeve: it was only the first part of two that would adapt the first book of the saga. Now, Timothee Chalamet is in charge of showing us that the filming has ended with a photo in the desert with his father, Marc Chalamet.
Chalamet will share the screen not only with Zendaya and the rest of the actors from the first part, but also with Florence Pugh, Austin Butler and Christopher Walken, who have joined the ship after seeing that it was possible to do ‘Dune’ well. In any case, even if the film is not successful -something that seems almost impossible-, the spin-off for HBO Max is more than confirmed.
If it’s a success again, yes. Villeneuve already has the third part planned, based on the book ‘Dune Messiah’. Let’s remember that Herbert wrote six books in the series, so if they go ahead, they have a lot to adapt… unless Warner, in the midst of sudden cuts and restructuring, don’t decide we’ve got enough of Arrakis already. We will know in almost a year!
