It’s been revealed that Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Fergusson, Zendaya, and Josh Brolin will all be returning to resume their roles in the next film along with newcomers Florence Pugh, and Christopher Walken, and Austin Butler. Denis Villeneuve is back in the director and producer’s chair, this time with a script of his own. Jon Spaihts will co-write with Villeneuve again. Yacoub is cast as Shishakli.
There was no comment from Legendary. The movie is due to make its debut on October 20, 2023, and filming is anticipated to kick off on October 20, 2023.
The fact that the original Dune premiered simultaneously on HBO Max didn’t stop the first Dune from succeeding in cinemas with a $41 million opening weekend and beyond expectations, leading to a swift green light for a sequel weeks later. To far, the picture has made $400 million worldwide, with $108 million of it coming from the United States alone. Additionally, it was nominated for 10 Oscars, including Best Picture, and won six of them. Up to now, the movie has amassed a total of $400 million in box offices all over the globe, including $108 million in the United States.
