Synopsis

Feature adaptation of Frank Herbert's science fiction novel about the son of a noble family trying to avenge his father's death while saving a spice planet that he is entrusted to protect.

This film has been in development since 2016, when Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve entered talks to call the shots. He signed on in 2017. Progress was made at various points in 2018 and 2019 as the film recruited its star-studded cast. Production is expected to begin in early 2019 and no official release date has been set.

The plan reportedly is for this film to cover the novel's first half, leaving the door open for possible sequels.

Artwork is from the 1984 film adaptation.
