Dune 2 could begin filming soon
Denis Villeneuve, director of the upcoming Dune movie, says that the sequel could begin shooting as early as 2022, if the project is greenlit by Warner Bros.
Dune, which will be in cinemas October 22nd, 2021, is based on the book by the same name by Frank Herbert; Villeneuve’s film is part of a two-part adaptation of the story, as the film releasing this year (2021) covers roughly the first half of the 1965 novel.
Since the story is split into two, Villeneuve had to know what would be included in both parts; he says that that the second part is more or less ready to go, and that he’s just waiting on the greenlight.
Jackass Forever delayed to 2022
The highly-anticipated fourth instalment into the franchise of crazy stunts and pranks has been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Fans can now expect to see Jackass Forever in cinemas on February 4th, 2022.
Jackass has been an iconic franchise for many years, with the first feature film releasing in 2002. Since then, the crew, including Johnny Knoxville, Steve-O and Chris Pontius, have continued making painful, yet hilarious content.
The fourth film has been delayed due to reasons relating to the global pandemic; despite a vaccine, the virus has persisted to put a stop to many things, including the film industry. With the virus still having a major impact, it seems those working on Jackass Forever don’t want to risk anyone, cast, crew, and fans alike, getting ill.
Despite an almost 4-month wait, the excitement for this movie will definitely not diminish, as fans are still looking forward to seeing the team on the big screen one last time.

Early reviews for King Richard are in
Early reactions are flooding in, and critics are highly praising the biopic starring Will Smith, about the lives of the Williams sisters.
