Hans Zimmer Has Started On ‘Dune: Messiah’ Soundtrack

Hans Zimmer, the celebrated composer behind the evocative soundscapes of Dune, has already embarked on his next grand project: the soundtrack for Dune: Messiah.

Following the monumental success of Dune, which stars Zendaya and Timothée Chalamet, the film’s creative team has been praised for bringing such a visually and sonically arresting narrative to the big screen. Among the key contributors, Zimmer’s dedication stands out, having initiated work on additional music for Dune immediately after wrapping up the first instalment.

Despite playful comments from director Denis Villeneuve about needing to restrain Zimmer’s enthusiasm, the composer was deeply involved from the start, crafting the scores for both parts of the film.

Zimmer’s passion for the Dune franchise shines through as he confirms the development of a third instalment, Dune: Messiah. This revelation comes amid the acclaim surrounding Dune: Part Two, a film celebrated for its storytelling depth, stellar performances, and visionary direction, all complemented by Zimmer’s masterful score.

According to Variety, on just the second day of filming Dune: Part Two, Villeneuve placed a copy of Dune: Messiah on Zimmer’s desk, signalling the continuation of their epic journey and underscoring that their work on the franchise was far from over.

“Denis comes in on the second day of shooting, and wordlessly comes in and puts Dune: Messiah on my desk, and I know where we’re going and I know we’re not done.”

The films, based on Frank Herbert’s seminal sci-fi novels, are divided into three parts, with Dune: Messiah concluding the story of Paul Atreides. Zimmer’s confirmation of the third film’s development has excited fans and industry insiders alike, showcasing the long-term vision Villeneuve and his team have for the saga.

As Dune: Part Two garners widespread acclaim and sets box office records, anticipation for Dune: Messiah builds. With Zimmer at the helm of the film’s score, audiences can expect another auditory masterpiece that will continue to elevate the Dune saga’s legacy.
