The long-awaited news arrived in October: Dune by Denis Villeneuve will have a sequel. And we now know when its shooting will begin.
“This is just the beginning“, assured Chani (Zendaya) at the end of Dune, on the bill since September 15. A line that promised a sequel to the adventures of Paul Atréides (Timothée Chalamet) among the Fremen, even though a second episode n had not yet been ordered.
But fans of Denis Villeneuve’s film will not have had to wait too long before being reassured since Warner officially announced a few weeks ago that a Dune Part 2 would see the light of day. It is October 18, 2023 that the epic of Paul will continue on the big screen after the shootings which should begin next summer.
