Legendary Entertainment could move to Sony or Paramount after their deal with Warner Bros. expires.
Legendary is behind some of the biggest films in recent memory, from Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Trilogy to Jurassic World. The studio has had a solid relationship with Warner Bros. over the years, but that could be coming to end.
Where Will Legendary Go?
Warner Bros. is undergoing massive changes with new CEO David Zaslav, and their partnership with Legendary might be another. According to The Ankler, Legendary is looking to find a new studio to partner with, and Sony and Paramount are said to be in the mix. Legendary and Warner Bros. have had a rocky relationship as of late due to the pandemic-era move of releasing films day and date on HBO Max, but a deal was eventually reached.
Here is the synopsis for Legendary’s Dune:
Set in the distant future, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides whose family accepts control of the desert planet Arrakis. As the only producer of a highly valuable resource, control of Arrakis is highly contested among the noble families. After Paul and his family are betrayed, the story explores themes of politics, religion, and man’s relationship to nature as Paul leads a rebellion to restore his family’s control of Arrakis.
Denis Villeneuve directed Dune from a script he co-wrote with Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts. The 2021 film stars Timothee Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgard, Charlotte Rampling, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Jason Momoa, Javier Bardem, and David Dastmalchian.
