A ‘Dune’ Series Is Coming To WarnerMedia’s Streaming Service From ‘Dune’ Movie Director Denis Villeneuve

Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve is currently shooting his massive Dune remake with Timoth’e Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac and a boatload of other pretty people. Seeing as how author Frank Herbert’s classic tombs of science fiction and fantasy has already been adapted into a cult classic film and a mediocre mini-series, it’s one hell of an undertaking on Villeneuve’s part. Yet that didn’t stop him from signing on to helm a Dune series for WarnerMedia’s upcoming streaming service.
