Denis Villeneuve confirmed in a Vanity Fair article that his adaptation of Dune will be split into two films in order to ensure that the original story would be "preserved and not cut into a million pieces." However, contrary to the common practice of filming several installments back-to-back, only the first movie was greenlit and produced, with an optional sequel depending on how well the first film performed. The sequel was greenlit on the Tuesday after the film opened, and as of May 2022, it has gone into pre-production with filming due to start soon.
Rated PG-13 for Some Disturbing Images, Sequences of Strong Violence, and Suggestive Material.
