Denis Villeneuve is set to direct a new adaptation of Dune.
Currently working on Blade Runner 2049, the director is likely to make Frank Herbert’s novel his next film.
As you can see from the above tweet, official confirmation of the news came from Frank’s son Brian Herbert.
The book has been filmed before, of course, with David Lynch’s 1984 feature criticised on its original release. It has however become a bit of a cult classic since then.
More as we get it.
