Brian Herbert says it's official - Denis Villeneuve will direct Dune

02.01.2017

A little over a month ago, Denis Villeneuve's name came up in regards to a DUNE remake. The classic hero's tale, involving a desert planet and some giant worms, has had its fair share of attached directors over the years. If the following is to be believed, Legendary Pictures has finally found their man.

Brian Herbert, author and son of Dune scribe Frank Herbert, Tweeted out the following in regards to the upcoming DUNE remake:

As of now, Brain Herbert is the only one claiming that it's a done deal with Villeneuve, so let's hope that's the case! Villeneuve has already proved himself in the sci-fi realm with ARRIVAL, and is delivering the much-anticipated sequel to BLADE RUNNER later this year. If everything goes according to plan, DUNE could prove to be his sci-fi masterpiece.

Denis Villeneuve's next film, BLADE RUNNER 2049, will open in theaters on October 6, 2017.

I don't like how they're calling it a Dune series film project... can't we just focus on one good film please? Also Dune is one of the greatest sci-fi books ever written but the rest of the series is meh as f^ck.

Denis has already talked at length about how Dune would be his absolute dream project to make (similar to how King Kong was Peter Jackson's). So this would not surprise me in the slightest and, agreed he'd be perfect for it. I can get behind a Villeneuve Dune way more than I could the Peter Berg dune that almost happened a few years back.

Well, it was nice to have Denis as long as we did. I suppose he's going to be relegated to franchise movies from here on out.

Perhaps he'll return to us in 15 years like Sam Raimi did.
