Denis Villeneuve‘s remake of Dune is undoubtedly one of this year’s most anticipated science-fiction films. An adaptation of Frank Herbert‘s beloved sci-fi novel, the film promises to be a sci-fi adventure of epic proportions.
The film is set in the distant future and will follow Paul Atreides, a young prince from the planet Caladan who is tasked to control a vital and highly-in demand resource from his home world. To tell his story, Villeneuve has assembled a pretty impressive cast, the likes of Timothée Chalamet in the lead as Atreides.
The film also stars Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica Atreides, Oscar Issac as Duke Leto Atreides, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho, Zendaya as Chani, Stellan Skarsgard as Baron Vladimir and Dave Bautista as Glossu Rabban.
Dune does in fact sound impressive, which is why Villeneuve has admitted that the film will only cover about half of Herbert’s novel. This means that we may well see a Dune sequel down the line if the film is a box-office success, much in the vein of two-part films we have seen in the past from franchises like Harry Potter and IT.
Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune is scheduled for a mid-December 2020 release. Check out the gallery below for a closer look at the film.
