Dune: Part Two has officially been delayed to 2024. The Timothée Chalamet-starring story of Paul Atreides has been pushed back due to the on-going WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Due to these strikes, the actors may not do press.
Warner Bros. made the announcement earlier this week after Variety exclusively reported last month that the film sequel is slated for a 2024 release date. Other films like the Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire has been pushed back another month. However, other titles like Wonka and The Marvels are expected to keep its release dates. Both Warner Bros. and Legendary are optimistic that next year’s spring is still ideal for releases.
Sony is the other major studio delaying several of its films amid the strikes. Last month, the company pushed back Kraven the Hunter, Ghostbusters: Afterlife and Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse. Dune: Part Two cast features a star-studded lineup that includes Zendaya, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem Dave Bautista, Christopher Walken, Lea Seydoux and more.
In other entertainment news, the Snyder cut for Rebel Moon will feature an extra hour of content.
