‘Dune’ Sequel Greenlit By Legendary For Exclusive Theatrical Release – Deadline
It what comes as no surprise, the sequel for Dune has finally been greenlit for a October 2023 theatrical release with director, producer, and co-screenwriter Denis Villeneuve returning. Key word here is theatrical. We understand that a key point of negotiations between Legendary and Warner Bros was that part 2 of this cinema spectacle would be given a pure theatrical window; no day/date HBO Max release plans are in the mix.
The news was announced on the Legendary and WB social accounts:
Part 1 was mid
Too far away. Shows a lack of foresight, but I'm still game.
Loved the first part.
Theaters should be fully open and operational by then smart move..
yeah they dropped the ball. the way they quickly announced this just further proves they were gonna do a sequel anyway
Sequels are often separated by two years
This isn't really a sequel, but maybe you're right. It just seems to me they should have had this ready to roll next year- or tried to.
During Denis interview with James Cameron he said it was months before that even had the storyboards ready and then when they began filming it was 109 days on set.
He said he couldn't have shot both films at once.. that was never gonna happen. it's too large in scope. Other directors have said how hard that is.
October 2023 is a pretty fast turnaround for this tbh
they should've film them simultaneously so they could've released it oct 2022
Denis wasn't gonna do that..
i thought the real reason was WB said no. They wanted to se how the release went first
i see your post above mine.... some films/stories work better released yearly as apposed to having 2-3 year gaps
