Dune 2 to begin filming at the end of summer
Timothée Chalamet starrer Dune 2 has been talked about since it was announced in 2021. Denis Villeneuve, the director of the film said in a recent interview that he is still working with the crew since this is the first time he will have ‘revisited a universe’ with the sequel of the hit film. During the interview, he mentioned that the screenplay is written and that the only ‘big unknown’ was the pandemic. The director told Empire, via Screen Rant:
“We are supposed to shoot by the end of the summer. I will say it is mostly designed. The thing that helps us right now is that it’s the first time I’ve revisited a universe. So I’m working with the same crew, everybody knows what to do, we know what it will look like. The movie will be more challenging, but we know where we are stepping. And the screenplay is written. So I feel confident. Frankly, the only big unknown for me right now is the pandemic.”
Recently, the nominees for the upcoming Academy Awards were announced, and Dune appears to be one of the favorites to win this year. It was nominated for Best Costume Design, Sound, Cinematography, Best Film Editing, Production Design, Visual Effects, Original Score, Adapted Screenplay, Film Editing, Makeup and Hairstyling, and finally, Best Picture.
