After Oppenheimer's Big Success, Dune Director Making Nuclear War Movie



Legendary Leisure has acquired the rights to Pulitzer Prize finalist Annie Jacobsen’s nonfiction ebook Nuclear Conflict: A Situation, which Deadline is reporting might trace at a doable collaboration with Dune: Half Two director Denis Villeneuve. The deal, valued at $500,000 towards $1.5 million, emerges as Nuclear Conflict has been getting traction on the New York Instances bestseller lists.

Jacobsen’s ebook explores a hypothetical nuclear battle situation, drawing from interviews with army and civilian consultants intimately concerned within the growth and strategic planning surrounding nuclear weapons. In keeping with Deadline, there’s an “expectation” that Villeneuve will tackle an adaptation of Jacobsen’s ebook following the completion of Dune: Messiah, which marks the conclusion of one other bold book-to-film adaptation.

That mentioned, Dune: Messiah will not be a direct certainty. Villeneuve advised Prime Time News24 not too long ago that there is a “chance” he might return for a 3rd and closing installment, including that he believes Dune 3 is “within the works proper now.” Villeneuve himself beforehand mentioned that his “dream” is to make a Dune trilogy, and that there are already “phrases on paper” for a 3rd entry.

In March 2024, Dune: Half Two grew to become the highest-grossing movie of the yr to this point, incomes $637 million globally. This success was adopted by Oppenheimer’s triumph on the Oscars. It is also value mentioning that Oppenheimer, directed by Christopher Nolan, is predicated on the 2005 biography American Prometheus by Kai Chicken and Martin J. Sherwin.

Other than a possible third Dune movie, Warner Bros. Discovery is producing a Dune TV sequence. Moreover, Dune: Awakening is ready to debut within the gaming world.
