Dune promises to bring alive author Frank Herbert’s bestselling novel to a new generation. It’s a classic hero’s journey story about Paul Atreides’ travels through the universe. Paul is a prominent character in the first two novels in the series, Dune and Dune Messiah, and returns in Children of Dune.
He must travel to the most dangerous planet to ensure the safety of his family and his people. A conflict arises over the planet’s supply of the most precious resource. It’s based on a book that’s been called the greatest science fiction novel of all time, so you might like to start reading this tome. This coming-of-age story was shot in the deserts of Jordan.
I’ve seen some of the early footage and it looks spectacular. Dune is about conquering your fears and surviving. What’s to become of our world? Only together do we stand a chance.

Villeneuve directed “Dune” from a screenplay by Jon Spaihts and Villeneuve 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.

Behind the scenes, Villeneuve reteamed with two-time Oscar-nominated production designer Patrice Vermette (“Arrival,” “Sicario,” “The Young Victoria”), two-time Oscar-nominated editor Joe Walker (“Blade Runner 2049,” “Arrival,” “12 Years a Slave”), two-time Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor Paul Lambert (“First Man,” “Blade Runner 2049”), and Oscar-winning special effects supervisor Gerd Nefzer (“Blade Runner 2049”).
