Legendary Pictures confirms Denis Villeneuve’s Dune will span two movies

When it was first announced that Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 helmer Denis Villeneuve was turning his attention to Frank Herbert’s seminal sci-fi epic Dune, it was said that the big screen adaptation would span two movies.

However, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures announced just one release date, and there was no mention of a second film when the official synopsis and cast list was revealed to mark last month’s start of principal photography.

Well, it seems there hasn’t been a change of plan, and the intention remains to split the sprawling tale across two films, as revealed by Legendary CEO Joshua Grode in an interview with THR:

“That’s the plan. There’s a backstory that was hinted at in some of the books [that we expanded]. Also, when you read the book there’s a logical place to stop the movie before the book is over.”
