Sequel to Dune confirmed for October 2023

A sequel to Dune has been confirmed. 

The sci-fi epic, which has just been released into cinemas, was billed onscreen as Dune: Part One, with director Denis Villeneuve always expressing a desire to make a sequel. That has now been confirmed. 

Production on the film is expected to get underway in the new year with the sequel due in cinemas in October of 2023. 

Dune stars Timothée Chalamet in the role of Paul Atreides, alongside Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson, Stellan Skarsgård, Charlotte Rampling, Zendaya, Dave Bautista, Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa and Javier Bardem.

The film, which is based on Frank Herbert's genre-defining book, focuses on the House of Atreides, rulers of the ocean planet Caladan, and their trials as they are handed control of desert planet Arrakis, source of the lucrative substance known as spice, by the Emperor of the Galactic Padishah Empire - to the detriment of their longtime enemies, House Harkonnen, who had run the spice harvesting operation on the planet for the previous 80 years.

Arriving on Arrakis, Paul's father Leto Atreides realises he has walked into a political trap, and when conflict ensues Paul seeks out help from the planet's local population, the desert-dwelling Fremen, and a woman who has been haunting his dreams.
