David Dastmalchian

Frank Herbert‘s sci-fi epic Dune is being adapted for the big screen once again. The film, which is being directed by Denis Villeneuve, is a sprawling epic featuring a large number of characters that are part of royal families competing over a valuable planetary resource. In the film, one of the noble families is betrayed and it is up to one of the dutiful royal sons to lead a rebellion that will help restore his family’s claim. But this won’t be just another sci-fi film adaptation, as the film will explore themes of politics, religion, and man’s relationship with nature.

We know that Villeneuve has assembled quite a cast to appear in this possible two-part epic. And now, another actor has joined the fray. According to new reports, Ant-Man and the Wasp‘s David Dastmalchian will join the film. More on the report below.

James Bond Daniel Craig

Fast and Furious 9 seemed to be put on the back burner for quite some time. Bond 25 is expected to start production very soon. And everyone and their mother seems to be signing on to be a part of Dune. While these three films couldn’t be any more different, they have one thing in common. They all finally have release dates.

Fast and Furious 9 is shifting from its initial April 2020 date and driving towards May 2020, which is giving Bond 25 a reason to take Fast and Furious 9‘s previous April 2020 date. Meanwhile, Dune will be hitting theaters in November 2020. More on all of this below.

Denis Villeneuve To Direct Dune Reboot

After directing titles like the mystery thriller Enemy and the crime dramas Prisoners and Sicario, lately it’s been all about the science fiction for Denis Villeneuve.

First it was Arrival, the alien contact movie which was recently nominated for eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Director for Villeneuve. Most recently he’s been busy making Blade Runner 2049, the long-awaited sequel to Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. Then, back in December, it was revealed that Villeneuve was in line to possibly take on a new adaptation of the sci-fi classic Dune.

Now it appears a new Dune movie directed by Villeneuve is a done deal.

Interview: ‘Jodorowsky’s Dune’ Director Frank Pavich

Jodorowsky's Dune Banner

Frank Herbert‘s 1965 science-fiction epic Dune had long been considered impossible to translate to film. Set 21,000 years in the future, in deep space, and on a planet made completely of sand (amongst gargantuan sandworms), it would require a budget of millions, special effects beyond the capabilities of the era, and more than all that, a director audacious enough to bring it to life.

In 1974, Chilean surrealist filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky was eager to accept the challenge. And while ultimately he wouldn’t succeed (where David Lynch eventually did, ten years later), his struggle to make Dune a reality would go down in history as one of cinema’s great “lost” projects.

That struggle has been chronicled in the documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune, which was recently released as a Blu-ray/DVD Combo Packread our FamousMonster’s review here. I recently spoke with the film’s director, Frank Pavich.
