Dune Delayed to October 2021, The Batman May Move As Result

October 5, 2020 | Posted by Jeremy Thomas

Denis Villeneuve’s Dune adaptation is getting a ten-month delay as films continue to shift dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and The Batman may move as a result. Deadline reports that Legendary’s adaptation of the Frank Herbert novel has been pushed from December 18th of this year to October 1st, 2021.

That date would currently put the film direct up against Warner Bros.’ The Batman, but the site says that it is possible the studio will move the Robert Pattinson-starring DC film in reaction to the move. That change has not yet officially happened though.

Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides (Timothée Chalamet), a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence — a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential — only those who can conquer their fear will survive.

The film stars Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Zendaya, Chang Chen, Sharon Duncan-Brewster, with Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa, and Javier Bardem.
