Production[edit]

Development[edit]

In March 2018, Denis Villeneuve stated that his goal was to adapt the novel into a two-part film series.[2] Villeneuve ultimately secured a two-movie deal with Warner Bros. Pictures, in the same style as the two-part adaption of Stephen King's It in 2017 and 2019. He stated that "I would not agree to make this adaptation of the book with one single movie" as Dune was "too complex" with "power in details" that a single film would fail to capture.[1]

In January 2019, Joe Walker was confirmed to be serving as the film's editor.[3] Other crew include: Brad Riker as supervising art director; Patrice Vermette as production designer; Paul Lambert as visual effects supervisors; Gerd Nefzer as special effects supervisor; and Thomas Struthers as stunt coordinator.[4] Dune: Part II will be produced by Villeneuve, Mary Parent, and Cale Boyter, with Tanya Lapointe, Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt, Kim Herbert, Thomas Tull, Jon Spaihts, Richard P. Rubinstein, John Harrison and Herbert W. Gain serving as executive producers and Kevin J. Anderson as creative consultant.[5] Legendary CEO Joshua Grode confirmed in April 2019 that they plan to make a sequel, adding that "there's a logical place to stop the [first] movie before the book is over."[6]

Writing[edit]

Eric Roth was hired to co-write the screenplay in April 2017,[7] and Jon Spaihts was later confirmed to be co-writing the script alongside Roth and Villeneuve.[8] Game of Thrones language creator David Peterson was confirmed to be developing languages for the film in April 2019.[9] In November 2019, Spaihts stepped down as showrunner on the Dune: The Sisterhood TV prequel series to focus on Dune: Part II.[10] In June 2020, Greig Fraser said, "It's a fully formed story in itself with places to go. It's a fully standalone epic film that people will get a lot out of when they see it".[11]
