Anyone who is aware of Dune Messiah understands why Villeneuve can’t soar straight into the following film. The first Dune is a (comparatively) simple story a couple of rising hero, full with the releasing of an oppressed folks and the overthrow of a disgusting tyrant. Although Villeneuve’s take does trace on the darkish facet of Paul’s ascension as described by Herbert, they continue to be hints and allusions.
In Dune Messiah, these points come to the fore and Paul turns into a extra morally ambiguous determine. Moreover, a lot of the e-book includes palace intrigue, associated by means of inside monologue and finger-speech, reasonably than motion. David Lynch had hopes of adapting the e-book however couldn’t deliver it to display screen, regardless of having a script that better fit his idiosyncratic style.
Obviously, Villeneuve has already been way more profitable in visualizing Hebert’s work, and Dune: Part Two stays one of the vital extremely anticipated movies of the yr. It wouldn’t shock anybody if Dune: Part Two does very nicely in theaters and Warner Bros. inexperienced lights a 3rd entry as quickly as doable.
That mentioned, Villeneuve could be very clear about desirous to take his time earlier than leaping to Dune Messiah. “I don’t know exactly when I will go back to Arrakis,” Villeneuve instructed the South Korean press. “I might make a detour before just to go away from the sun. For my mental sanity I might do something in between, but my dream would be to go a last time on this planet that I love.”
That potential return received’t play precisely like the primary two movies, although.
“I want to make sure that if we go back there a third time that it’ll be worth it, and that it would make something even better than Part Two,” Villeneuve instructed Vanity Fair. “It needs to be different. I don’t want to fall into dogmas. I don’t want to fall into a vocabulary that has been predefined by the first two movies. I would love to make something different. We are figuring that out right now.”
