The Dune movie reboot at Legendary has a great director in mind…

December 22nd, 2016 by Marc Comments


We reported a while back that a Dune movie and (possibly) TV universe was coming and now it looks like it may have a very impressive director in mind to kick start it all…

It looks like Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve is the man Legendary want for the gig.

“The Blade Runner 2049 director is in talks to helm the Dunereboot for Legendary. The production company picked up the film and television rights to Frank Herbert’s classic science-fiction novel last month.”

The original movie, released in 1984 and made by David Lynch, is so massive and ambitious, the fact that it exists at all is a credit to the people behind it, Yet, despite it all, it never quite did the Frank Herbert books justice.

It’s not a done deal but we reckon he’d be a good candidate for the gig…

What say you all?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
