Blade Runner 2049 Director in Talks for Possible Dune Reboot

Legendary acquired film and television rights to Frank Herbert's sandworm and spice science-fiction last month.

The filmmaker helmed the Amy Adams-starrer 'Arrival,' released last month, and the upcoming sci-fi sequel 'Blade Runner 2049.'

Denis Villeneuve's holiday plans may now include a trip to Arrakis.

The Blade Runner 2049 director is in talks to helm the Dune reboot for Legendary. The production company picked up the film and television rights to Frank Herbert's classic science-fiction novel last month. 

Dune, which traverses themes of politics, religion and nature, follows Paul Atreides, whose family controls the desert planet Arrakis, which is the only producer of a highly valuable resource, spice melange. When Paul and his family are betrayed, he leads a rebellion to regain control of the desert planet. 

David Lynch directed the 1984 adaptation of the 1965 novel. The $40 million film, which ultimately grossed $30 million and was a critical failure, has over the years become a cult favorite.

Thomas Tull, Mary Parent and Cale Boyter will produce the new Dune adaptation, with Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt and Kim Herbert serving as executive producers.

    I hope he does a better job with it then Lynch, and stick to the original story. The 6 Dune books by Herbert are among the best Fantasy/Sci-fi books around and deserves a serious movie adaption.

    Agreed. Frank created a heady and layered depth with the universe. I would be intrigued by a new game or two coming from the IP.
    Very much on my radar of films to watch.

    It's like a cycle restarting, this, Blade Runner, another aliens movie coming(w/o predators), another Predator movie coming (w/o aliens). :)

    Check out the documentary about the "best Dune movie that was never made" that tells the story about a canceled project involving really big names such Giger and so on.

    Honestly, I think they should stop with the remakes or sequels of great movies. It diminishes the value of the original. We also have seen that many Hollywood writers simply make a canned version of the Hero's Journey in spite of the original story. A lot of these remakes have tropes that diminish their value like passing along the torch. They rely on the popularity of the original in order to sell tickets.
    For all that is wrong with Avatar, it would be a much better movie than an Aliens remake.

    The only promising remakes I have seen recently are the new Star Wars movies under Disney. But they also had a failed run of 3 prequels.

    I hate when the three musketeers is on dish network because I know it most often won't be the 70s version but one of the new ones which stink.  You seen they can get more money for the new one than the old one which they feel younger viewers won't watch.

    There are tons of black and white movies but how many are on netflix?
