Variety recently reported that there is a possibility that Denis Villeneuve's highly anticipated continuation of his Frank Herbert adaptation might be delayed to next year. The film is currently scheduled for release on November 3rd, but Warner Bros is apparently contemplating moving it to 2024, as indicated by several sources. However, any decision to postpone the release would require mutual agreement between Warner and co-producers Legendary Entertainment.
Amidst the current situation in Hollywood, both the Writers' Guild of America (WGA) and the Screen Actors' Guild (SAG) are simultaneously on strike. While the strikes themselves may not directly halt film releases, they could potentially have a ripple effect on the industry. One of the consequences could be the postponement of film premieres.
The star-studded cast of Villeneuve's movie, boasting names such as Zendaya, Timothée Chalamet, Austin Butler, Florence Pugh, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, and Josh Brolin, may also play a role in any potential delay. With such significant star power, promotional activities leading up to the release might be affected if the major names are unable to engage due to the ongoing strikes.
Fans eagerly anticipating the next journey to Arrakis will have to wait patiently for any official updates on the film's release date. Despite the uncertainty, it is expected that the wait will be worthwhile whenever the movie eventually hits the screens.
