The long-awaited sequel to Dune 2, directed by Denis Villeneuve, is now in theaters in Ukraine. In its first week at the global box office, the film grossed $178.5 million, exceeding the expectations of the filmmakers and receiving many rave reviews from critics and audiences alike. This was reported by SSPDaily.

Legendary Entertainment CEO Josh Grove spoke to CNBC about the chances of a third film after the successful launch of Dune 2.

Josh Grove noted that he "doesn't understand why they wouldn't make" the third part. However, in order for Dune 3 to actually be filmed, it requires the decision of director Denis Villeneuve.

"I think everyone is very excited and really enjoying this moment. If Danny writes the right script and feels that he can make another movie that is comparable to the one we just completed, then I don't see why not," said Josh Groden.

According to him, if the director does agree to take on Dune 3, then all the people creatively involved in the creation of this project must fully support Denis Villeneuve's vision.

What the director himself says about the third Dune

According to Digital Spy, Villeneuve said that the creation of the film is "in the early stages."

"We are in the early stages. We are on the right track. A lot of work has been done, but there's still a lot of work to be done to have something solid to shoot," Villeneuve said.

" There's definitely a desire to make a third movie, but I don't want to rush it. The danger in Hollywood is that people get carried away and only think about release dates, not quality," he added in an interview with The Times.

It is worth noting that in December 2023, before the release of Dune 2, Denis Villeneuve stated that the third part was indeed in the works, but no specific dates were mentioned yet. At that time, work on the script began.

The third part of the movie will probably be based on the novel Dune Messiah by Frank Herbert.

What will the third part be about

As a reminder, Herbert's seminal 1965 science fiction novel subsequently spawned a franchise that included five sequels that he wrote himself, as well as a collection of additional prequels and sequels written by his son Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson.

The main series is The Dune Chronicles by Frank Herbert:

  • "Dune" (1965)
  • "Dune's Messiah (1969)
  • "Children of Dune (1976)
  • "The God-Emperor of Dune (1981)
  • "The Heretics of Dune (1984)
  • "Dune's Capital (1985)

The action of the book "Dune Messiah" takes place 12 years after Paul Atreides took the throne of the emperor. He entered into a fictitious marriage with the daughter of Emperor Irulan to take the throne. His beloved fremen Chani became Paul's concubine. During childbirth, Chani dies, giving birth to twins.

Will there be other films based on Frank Herbert's works?

Although Villeneuve wants to return to Dune 3, he has no plans to adapt other books by Frank Herbert. The fact that the third part of Dune. The Messiah" will be his last work on the world of Frank Herbert, the director himself said in an interview with Time.

In a commentary to Inverse, Villeneuve said that he does not know whether he wants to spend the rest of his career working in Herbert's world. He also admitted that he was afraid to work with the content of the later books in the saga, describing them as "quite esoteric" and "difficult to adapt ."

"Time is passing, and I don't know if I want to spend the rest of my days on Arrakis. I'm frankly afraid of the other books because they're getting quite esoteric and harder to adapt," he said.

The next books will probably be adapted by another director.

As a reminder, a man in Canada managed to see Dune 2 before his death long before the premiere thanks to the film's team.
