Dune it is one of the works of science fiction most iconic that has ever existed, created by Frank Herbert. Unfortunately for many, if not all, the novel never got an adaptation that will do honor to the work of Herbert. Even David Lynch tried in 1984, but it was just a failure. Now, Denis Villeneuve is directing a new movie Dune and after yesterday we had the first image of this new adaptationthe magazine Vanity Fair has just revealed a series of new images.
In the images we see every one of the characters of Dune as Chani (Zendaya), Duke Leto Atreides (Oscar Isaac), Lady Jessica Atreides (Rebecca Ferguson), Gurney Halleck (Josh Brolin), Duncan Idaho (Jason Momoa) and Liet Kynes (Sharon Duncan-Brewster). But the best of this new revelation, is that the own Villeneuve revealed that the tape is split into two parts because “the world is too complex. It is a world that has its power in the details,” he said.
“It is a book that deals with politics, religion, ecology, and spirituality, with many characters. I think that’s why it is so difficult. Honestly, it is by far the most difficult thing I have ever done in my life”explained Villeneuve.
Dune it tells the story of Paul Atreides, a young brilliant and talented, born in a great destiny far beyond your understanding that you must travel to the planet more dangerous to the universe to ensure the future of your life and that of his family. As the forces of evil operate in a conflict for the exclusive supply of the planet’s most precious resource that exists, a goods able to unlock the greater potential of humanity, only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
Here are the images:
In this moment, everything that has to do with this version of Dune it is a surprise. The first part will be released in December of this year (so far, the plan has not changed) and the second part does not yet have a release date, nor do we know if both parties are filming at the same time.
