“Dune: Part Two” is officially confirmed.

After an overperformance at the U.S. box office, Legendary has announced that the sci-fi adaptation “Dune” will be getting a sequel simply titled “Dune: Part Two”. According to Variety, the film is expected to have an exclusive theatrical release, as opposed to the dual theatrical and HBO Max release “Dune” has now. Warner Bros. is set to distribute and help finance the epic with Legendary once again, and director Denis Villeneuve is also expected to return. Per Variety, Villeneuve has been vocal about wanting his adaptation of the Frank Herbert novel to have two parts. On Tuesday, Legendary tweeted: “This is only the beginning...Thank you to those who have experienced @dunemovie so far, and those who are going in the days and weeks ahead. We're excited to continue the journey!” The first movie has so far grossed over $220 million worldwide after bringing in $41 million domestically in its opening weekend. While no news of casting has been announced yet, the first film’s casting directors Jina Jay and Francine Maisler could likely return.
