Despite its sequel not even in theaters yet, Dune director Denis Villeneuve has shared that there is a chance for a third film in the franchise.

In a recent interview, the filmmaker revealed that he is confident in the possibility of Warner Bros. and Legendary green-lighting Dune: Part 3, which will be based on Frank Herbert’s Dune Messiah. “I think ‘Dune Messiah’ would be a beautiful film,” he said. “And it would complete Paul Atreides’ journey. But I’m going one movie at a time. It’s so difficult, and I’m a bit lazy! But I think three movies is a possibility.”

Villeneuve has always envisioned the franchise as a trilogy, however, previously telling Entertainment Weekly, “It’s not that I want to do a franchise, but this is ‘Dune,’ and ‘Dune’ is a huge story. In order to honor it, I think you would need at least three movies. That would be the dream. To follow Paul Atreides and his full arc would be nice.”

Warner Bros. and Legendary confirmed Dune: Part 2 in October 2021 and shared an October 20, 2023 release date.

Elsewhere in entertainment, watch the trailer for A24’s horror flick starring Kid Cudi.
