‘Dune 3’ Release Date: When Will Fans See the Final Movie?

Here it is: as the film has not yet started, setting a release date is premature. Not that it hasn’t been done before, but in this case the date simply hasn’t been decided yet.

The hold-up could well be Villeneuve.

He hasn’t officially signed on to direct a third, and given that he’s spent the last six years dedicated to directing his first two “Dune” films, it appears he’s ready to take a break.

He shared during a press conference in South Korea in 2023, “there was no gap” between the first two films, and he wants to take time before tackling “The Messiah”.

“I don’t know exactly when I will return to Arrakis,” Villeneuve said. “Maybe I’ll take a detour first just to get away from the sun.” For my sanity, I might do something in between.

Will Zendaya and Timothée return for another ‘Dune’ movie?

Zendayawho plays Chani in Villeneuve Dune films, it was recently requested by Fandango if she would like to return for a third film.

“Would we be broken down? I mean, sure,” Zendaya said of creating another Dune. “Every time Denis calls, it’s a yes from me. I can’t wait to see what happens. I started (reading) “Messiah” and I was like, “Woah, I’m just shooting the first movie.” Let me go back to the first one. It’s so much to take in, but there are no better hands with as much care and love than Denis.

Timothy completely agrees. “I’m very excited about the idea,” the leading man said. Total Film Review. “If the time and opportunity presents itself to finish the story with ‘Messiah,’ I think we will all be very excited about it.”
