Denis Villeneuve to direct Dune

February 2nd, 2017 by bash Comments

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.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
