“Dune: Part Two” Wraps Filming

Co-writer/director Denis Villeneuve’s Dune: Part Two has officially wrapped filming. We learned this from Paul Atreides himself—Timotheé Chalamet—via an Instagram post. The image shows Chalamet in the desert, along with his father Marc, and the caption “DUNE 2 WRAPPED (with desert dad !!).

Dune: Part Two will now move into post-production, where editing, visual effects, sound, color correcting, and a whole lot more will be fine-tuned. The sequel will pick up where Dune left off, with Paul Atreides and Lady Jessica (Rebecca Ferguson) moving deep into the Arrakis desert with the Fremen, led by Stilgar (Javier Bardem), and with Chani (Zendaya) taking on a much larger role, as they plot to strike back at House Harkonnen.

Chalamet, Ferguson, Bardem, and Zendaya are joined by returning cast members Josh Brolin as Atreides ally Gurney Halleck, Stellan Skarsgård as Baron Vladimir Harkonnen, and Dave Bautista as Glossu Rabban Harkonnen. New cast members include Léa Seydoux as Lady Margot, Florence Pugh as Princess Irulan Corrino, and Austin Butler as Feyd-Rautha Harkonnen.

Dune: Part Two will complete Villeneuve’s vision for adapting Frank Herbert’s seminal, meaty 1965 tome. He and his fellow Oscar-nominated co-writer Jon Spaihts had made a bold (and brilliant) decision to cut Herbert’s novel in half instead of trying to fit the entire epic into a single film. Their decision paid off when Dune was a critical and commercial success and the sequel was greenlit. Now, Villeneuve is one step closer to completing his adaptation.

Check out Chalamet’s update below. Dune: Part Two will hit theaters on November 3, 2023.
