Dune DP Says Denis Villeneuve Film Doesn't Need Sequel to Feel Complete

We already know that Denis Villeneuve will be working on a sequel to the upcoming Dune adaptation. However, cinematographer Greig Fraser says you won't have to wait for the second movie to feel like you've experienced the full story.

Fraser recently spoke to Collider where he discussed what it was like working on Dune. Interestingly, the DP confirmed that although the upcoming film is just the first part of the adaptation, it won't feel like something is missing from the storyline.

"It's a fully formed story in itself with places to go. It's a fully standalone epic film that people will get a lot out of when they see it," Fraser said.

Fraser also stated that he truly enjoyed working on the movie.

"It was quite an adventure visually. It was a beautiful experience making it. The people involved with it, I was overwhelmed. Some of the actors, as well as being insanely talented actors, are just lovely, lovely people who I've become very close to since then," he said.

Fraser had previously revealed that he had to somehow forget working on Star Wars when he had to prepare for Dune. On the other hand, he was also quick to point out that Frank Herbert's works were somehow the inspiration behind Star Wars so it wasn't too difficult to adjust.

Dune will star Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Chang Chen, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa and Javier Bardem. The film is scheduled for release on December 18.
