BLADE RUNNER 2049 Director Denis Villeneuve Is In Early Talks To Helm Legendary's DUNE Reboot

In news that's sure to delight fans of Frank Herbert's classic novel, it looks like Denis Villeneuve is in line to direct Legendary's planned reboot of sci-fi adventure, Dune. More past the jump...

Last month we reported that Legendary had acquired the film and TV rights to Frank Herbert's Dune, and now Variety has revealed that none other than Denis Villeneuve (Blade Runner 2049, Arrival, Sicario) is in negotiations with the studio to direct a big-screen adaptation of the seminal sci-fi novel.

When news first broke that we'd be getting another movie, Villeneuve's name was brought up more than a few times as the perfect choice to helm the project, so this must be music to many fans' ears.

There have been several different adaptions of Dune over the years, the most famous (or infamous depending on your perspective) is David Lynch's ambitious but flawed 1984 movie starring Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Kyle MacLachlan.

The movie will be produced by Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, and Cale Boyter, with Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt, and Kim Herbert serving as executive producers.
