As reported by Collider, Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” will now be released by Warner Bros. on October 1st, 2021. The screenplay for “Dune,” which was adapted from the classic novel by Frank Herbert, was written by Jon Spaihts (“Doctor Strange”), Eric Roth (“A Star Is Born”), and Villeneuve himself.
“Dune”’s incredible ensemble cast will include Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Zendaya, Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, Stephen McKinley Henderson, and Dave Bautista. Many have speculated that this film could garner Chalamet his second Oscar nomination.
“Dune” was originally supposed to premiere on December 18th, but after Warner Bros. moved “Wonder Woman 1984” to Christmas Day, complications ensued. With movie theaters having fully not reopened yet, this is the safer bet if Warner Bros. wants “Dune” to be a box office success.
