The ‘Dune’ Reboot Is Officially Happening With Denis Villeneuve


Back in November we got word that Legendary acquired the film and TV rights for Dune, but we didn’t know if any projects were in the works. Well, today we have confirmation that Denis Villeneuve (Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) will direct a new Dune film thanks to a tweet from Brian Herbert, son of the original Dune author Frank Herbert.

I definitely enjoyed Arrival, so I’m optimistic that Villeneuve can finally deliver on a Dune adaptation that satisfies fans. And, again, we’re talking film and TV rights here, so there’s likely more to come.
