In a statement, director Denis Villeneuve said of the news:
“I just received news from Legendary that we are officially moving forward with Dune: Part Two.It was a dream of mine to adapt Frank Herbert’s Dune and I have the fans, the cast, and crew, Legendary and Warner Bros. to thank for supporting this dream. This is only the beginning.”
Legendary had this to say about the news:
“Legendary is pleased to officially move forward with Dune: Part Two…once again based on the amazing books written by Frank Herbert. We would not have gotten to this point without the extraordinary vision of Denis and the amazing work of his talented crew, the writers, our stellar cast, our partners at Warner Bros., and of course the fans! Here’s to more Dune.”
And Chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group Toby Emmerich offered a bit of insight as to WHEN we may see Part Two:
“Denis Villeneuve has crafted a film that is both visually extraordinary and emotionally transporting, as evidenced by its global success both critically and at the box office.
