the second half will be the biggest challenge of Denis Villeneuve’s career

As for the latest epic sci-fi movies on the big screen, Dunes is by far the most ambitious of them, and despite its colossal budget, the film was successful enough for directors Denis Villeneuve to fulfill their desire to continue the story in Dune: second part. The power of Dunes is captured for its 10 Oscar nominations, including one for best film but not for best direction, and on Sunday night we will discover the success of the film in terms of awards. For Villeneuve, however, it seems he has a lot more to give when it comes to it Dune: second partwhich he has recently described as “the biggest challenge” of his career.

Unlike the previous adaptation of Dunes by David Lynch in 1984, which condensed Frank Herbert’s great novel into a single film and bombed the box office, Villeneuve originally split the book into two films. Although there is no guarantee that the director will be able to make the second chapter, like many similar companies in recent years Stephen King’s Computer Science, at the time of the film’s release, it was clear that the second part would soon go into production. For this reason, much of the preparatory work has already been done Dune: second part, which will see the return of many actors from the first film.

Speaking to ET Canada, Villeneuve explained that for him, as soon as the Oscars are over, he will return to work on the sequel, which he promised will be “even more complex than the first part”. The director said:

“It’s going to be intense. I’m preparing right now. On Monday morning, as soon as we leave Los Angeles, it’s time to start preparing. I can’t say anything about the film – I don’t like talking about projects while I’m doing them – but it will probably be the biggest challenge of my career, again, because it is even more complex than the first part. ”

When it comes to Dune: second part, many of the characters who appeared in the first film will have more screen time and extended stories in the second part. This includes major roles for Javier Bardem and Zendaya, whose story with Paul Atreides, played by Timothée Chalamet, will be a dominant part of the plot of the new film.

“For Zendaya, I will say that the first part was a promise. I know we saw it in the first part, but in the second, it will play a leading role. We will follow Timothée and Zendaya in their adventures in the series. That’s what moved me most about coming back to Arrakis is spending time with these characters again, ”Villeneuve said. Variety earlier this year.

While Dunes he did not emerge unscathed from the criticism, Villeneuve expects Dune: second part it will not be the last film in the franchise, as it has already been mocked that he wants to follow his own Dunes films with the second book in the series, Messiah. Although this will certainly require Dune: second part to show a growth in ratings compared to its predecessor, we are still more than a year to find out if there is a third film on the cards or not later Dune: second part released in October 2023.
