Florence Pugh On The Brink Of Joining Dune Part Two

Dune Part Two is completing the cast with Florence Pugh on the brink of signing for the role of Princess Irulan Corrino.

Dune is the epic science fiction movie that Denis Villeneuve directed and co-wrote with Jon Spaihts, and Eric Roth.

The 2021 film is the first of the two-part movie that is an adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel. The story focuses on Paul Atreides as his family battles for the desert planet Arrakis.

Dune Part Two will cover the remaining part of the novel.

Legendary Entertainment initially secured the production for the first movie. There was a condition where they will only allow production of the sequel if the first movie is a successful venture.

The financial performance of Dune essentially secured the production for Dune Part Two. With a production budget of $165M, the movie grossed a World Wide Box Office record of $400M.

The movie also generated favorable critical reviews compared to previous adaptations of the novel. The adaptation garnered 84% on the Tomatometer with 468 reviews and 90% on audience score with 5000+ verified ratings.

Critics consensus feature:

Dune occasionally struggles with its unwieldy source material, but those issues are largely overshadowed by the scope and ambition of this visually thrilling adaptation.

The audience  says:

Denis Villeneuve’s Dune looks and sounds amazing — and once the (admittedly slow-building) story gets you hooked, you’ll be on the edge of your seat for the sequel.

2021 Dune has 10 nominations for the upcoming Academy Awards later this month, which are Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Original Score, Best Costume Design, Best Sound, Best Film Editing, Best Makeup and Hairstyling, Best Cinematography, Best Production Design and Best Visual Effects.

The movie already won numerous awards from American Film Institute, Hollywood Music in Media, National Board of Review, Washington D.C. Area Film Critics Association, New York Film Critics Online, Chicago Film Critics Association, Golden Globe and so many others.

With the successful results on critical acclaim and box office record, Dune Part Two is good to go.

Upcoming sequel expects Timothy Chalamet and Zendaya to return to the roles of Paul and Chani.

According to Murphy’s Multiverse, should production confirm Florence Pugh as cast member, she will portray Princess Irulan Corrino.  The character is Paul’s wife but does not have his heart.

The movie will conclude the story based on the novel. Many are looking forward to see how Director Denis Villeneuve brings this epic science fiction to a close.

The much anticipated movie has 2023 as its schedule for premiere.
