Denis Villeneuve’s Prepared for Dune 3, He Simply Wants a Break First

Dune: Part Two is a bit over a month away, and followers are nonetheless hoping there’s extra movies to return. Director Denis Villeneuve’s been fairly about his needs to adapt the e book’s fast sequel, Dune Messiah. And whereas these plans haven’t modified, it feels like he’ll step again from the collection earlier than giving that one a correct go.

In a current interview with Vanity Fair, Villeneuve talked about eager to “cool down a bit bit” after Half Two. The primary two Dune movies had been made back-to-back, and the staff “didn’t have a second to relaxation.” By the point of the 2022 Oscars, his producer (and spouse) Tanya Lapointe had been in pre-production on Half Two, a pointy distinction to different administrators the morning after the ceremony who had been speaking about how they’d spend their downtime. Understandably, the filmmaking couple wish to have an actual break of their very own and put a ways between them and Arrakis.

Dangerous information, then, that Dune: Half Two will finish on a cliffhanger, in accordance with the director. Just like the 1965 novel, the sequel will shut out “with the start of one thing that’s uncontrolled,” which he was all in favor of. Assured of how Half Two sticks the touchdown, Villeneuve confirmed his eventual adaptation of 1969’s Dune Messiah may have a 12-year timeskip. Messiah’s script is presently being labored on, and as self-professed fan of Frank Herbert’s books, he’s excited to succeed in “the top of the arc of Paul Atreides.”

Naturally, Villeneuve desires an eventual Messiah movie to be higher than Half Two, and in addition for it to be “completely different” than its predecessors. A break would assist be certain that, he mentioned, as prevents him from “[falling] right into a vocabulary that has been predefined by the primary two motion pictures.” He’d be sport to make one thing else within the interim, but it surely’s not a tender affirmation of something particularly—simply an acknowledgment that it’d be wholesome to step again from the franchise machine.

Dune: Half Two releases in theaters on March 1.
