Dune is 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” was filmed on location in Hungary and Jordan. The film is slated for a December 18, 2020, worldwide release from Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary.
Villeneuve directed “Dune” from a screenplay he co-wrote with Jon Spaihts and Eric Roth based on the novel of the same name written by Frank Herbert. Villeneuve also produced the film with Mary Parent, Cale Boyter and Joe Caracciolo, Jr. The executive producers are Tanya Lapointe, Joshua Grode, Herbert W. Gains, Jon Spaihts, Thomas Tull, Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt and Kim Herbert.
Even though the sequel has not yet been officially greenlit by Legendary, Villeneuve has stated that the 2020 film will roughly cover the first half of the novel he said “I would not agree to make this adaptation of the book with one single movie”, says Villeneuve. “The world is too complex. It’s a world that takes its power in details.”
The movie is expected to release on Netflix. It was originally planned to release on November 20, 2020, but due to the COVID19 Pandemic Warner bros rescheduled the premiere to December 18.
