Filming has begun on Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Entertainment’s epic Dune, being directed by Oscar nominee Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049).
The big-screen adaptation of Frank Herbert’s seminal bestseller Dune stars Oscar nominee Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Oscar nominee Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Stephen Henderson, with Oscar nominee Charlotte Rampling, with Jason Momoa, and Oscar winner Javier Bardem.
A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people.
As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
Dune is being filmed on location in Budapest, Hungary, and in Jordan. The film is slated for a November 20, 2020 worldwide release from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Entertainment.
