砂丘: 部 2 has officially been greenlit.
ティモシー・シャラメ and Legendary Entertainment announced the news on Twitter that the sequel will hit cinemas 20 10月 2023.
声明の中で, Legendary said: “We would not have gotten to this point without the extraordinary vision of Denis and the amazing work of his talented crew, the writers, our stellar cast, our partners at Warner Bros, and of course the fans! Here’s to more 砂丘.」
Released simultaneously in the US to cinemas and the HBO Max streaming service, 砂丘 has been a box office hit around the globe.
The story was always intended to be two separate films with the opening credits of the movie even stating “Part One”.
Director Denis Villeneuve previously told バラエティ: “I wanted at the beginning to do the two parts simultaneously. For several reasons, it didn’t happen, and I agreed to the challenge of making part one and then wait to see if the movie rings enough enthusiasm.”
WarnerMedia executives had also said that a future 砂丘 film would be based on “the entirety of what ‘Dune’ can do for the company, including HBO Max”.
Leading man, シャラメ, also confirmed the movie on his social media by posting a picture of a teaser poster for 砂丘: 部 2.
Based on the much loved novel by Frank Herbert, 砂丘 was previously adapted in 1984 by David Lynch to critical and commercial failure.
As well as Chalamet, this version of 砂丘 also stars Zendaya, オスカーアイザック, ジェイソン・モモア, レベッカ・ファーガソン, Josh Brolin and Dave Bautista.
