Denis Villeneuve once again shared his desire to make a third film based on the book series by Frank Herbert. The writer’s second novel, “Messiah of Dune,” will be taken as a basis. True, the film studio behind the film adaptation, Warner Bros. until she gave the director the green light to develop the next part. But the producers clearly need to hurry up, because this time Villeneuve said he wants to stop.

"Dune Messiah is supposed to be the last Dune movie for me," he confirmed his plans for the franchise in an interview with Time magazine. Dune: Part Two, which Villeneuve again directed with Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya, as well as newcomers Austin Butler and Florence Pugh, is scheduled to be released in theaters at the end of February.

In December, the director also said that the script for the third part was “being written right now.” “The script is almost finished, but not quite. I need a little time... I have a dream to make another film... it will be of great importance to me,” he emphasized.
