The sci-fi blockbuster “Dune” is currently participating in the Venice Film Festival, and film director Denis Villeneuve also revealed the dynamics of the film’s sequel in Venice.
It is understood that everything is going well for “Dune 2” and the preparations have been completed.
If everything goes according to plan, the film will start shooting in 2022.
Denis Villeneuve said: “When you shoot a movie for the next episode, you will always do all the preparations. If the producer can give the green light, then I can start shooting this movie in 2022, because I have made all the preparations.”
It is not difficult to see from Denis Villeneuve’s rhetoric that the script for the sequel has been written, and he has a strong enthusiasm to shoot the sequel.
However, the obstacles facing “Dune” are not just the epidemic.
The cost of “Dune” is as high as 165 million US dollars, and the mixed release model may make the film bear excessive box office pressure.
Therefore, whether “Dune 2” can start shooting quickly is still unknown.
