I don't know where I saw it but Villeneuve only agreed to do the film if Legendary committed to both films regardless of the box office takings of the first.I don't know how to search this thread....
Did anyone note that principal photography had finished on the first half of Dune , what about 2 months ago now?
Villeneuve had said , somewhere, that there would be, by contract, two Dune films to tell the story.
So this is a puzzle.
What if the 1st half of Villeneuve's Dune is great, best adaptation ever done, but flops at the box office?
Does that mean Legendary does not produce the 2nd half?
