Denis Villeneuve is willing to push forward with plans for a sequel to is science-fiction epic Dune, despite the film no longer even having opened in cinemas.
The Arrival director’s $165 million (£120 million) adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic current about a brutal interstellar society got rave opinions after premiering at the Venice Film Festival on Friday.
Villeneuve took a likelihood by only putting half of the book’s story on cowl without an legitimate inexperienced gentle from Warner Bros. to film the 2nd a part of the costly dwelling trot – but says he is ready to initiate work on a sequel more than a month prior to its first part’s launch.
“For of us that manufacture a film in two elements, necessarily, in case you attain the important part that you would be able to even accept as true with to know what that you would be able to even presumably be going to attain in the 2nd part,” Villeneuve explained during a Venice spherical desk, according to Slashfilm. “So I will allege that I shall be very ready to mosey barely hasty.”
He continued: “To mosey hasty in a film of that dimension you continue to need to manufacture sets, costumes, so we are talking about months. But when ever there may perchance be enthusiasm and the film is inexperienced lit sooner than later, I will allege that I shall be ready to shoot in 2022, for certain. 2022, for certain. I’d love to because I’m ready to mosey, and I will allege that I’d love to bring it to the cowl as soon as possible.”
David Lynch’s 1984 adaptation of Herbert’s book, the important of six the novellist wrote in his lifetime, proved a costly flop and wasn’t deemed distinguished of a sequel. Alternatively, Villeneuve is already planning no longer correct a conference-up but a third film.
“I envision the variation of two books, ‘Dune’ and ‘Dune Messiah’,” he revealed. “I stated, ‘Ok. As a filmmaker, as a screenwriter, I perceive how to attain this.’ So we made up our minds to split the important current in two. So now we accept as true with to accept as true with three motion photos. Those motion photos are very lengthy to manufacture. So for my mental sanity I made up our minds to correct dream about three motion photos, because I’m a tall fan of the total novels. After that, I could peek where I’m. But I will allege that I need to point of interest on the aspect of these three motion photos correct now.”
Dune, which stars Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, Oscar Isaac, and Rebecca Ferguson, is due for launch on 22 October.
