Denis Villeneuve’s blockbuster epic, “Dune” based on Frank Herbert’s novel of the same name has officially been confirmed to be two movies. Legendary CEO Joshua Grade has been speaking to Hollywood Reporter recently.
“That’s the plan. There’s a backstory that was hinted at in some of the books [that we expanded]. Also, when you read the book there’s a logical place to stop the movie before the book is over.”
