Denis Villeneuve's Dune will be released in November 2020


We finally know when Denis Villeneuve's adaptation to dune will be released on November 20, 2020, according to Variety. The film is the latest adaptation of Frank Herbert's 1965 classic science-fiction novel set on a desert planet in a feudal galaxy.

Villeneuve arrives at the film with an impressive track record in science fiction, first with his first contact film Arrival, and with Blade Runner 2049. Last year, the director said in an interview that his goal was to make two films, which Herbert's son, Brian, argued, claiming that the first scenario pretty much covered the first half of the novel. Already, we have seen a steady stream of information about the cast, revealing a spectacular cast for the project.

Villeneuve's film is the latest version of the novel. David Lynch made a famous adaptation in 1984 that later achieved cult status. The chain SCI FI produced a miniseries and a continuation in 2000 and 2003.

The story follows a noble house, the Atreides, which controls the desert planet Arrakis. The planet is the only known source of mixture (spice), a drug that enhances the mental abilities of man and makes possible the trips in the space. When the rival family is overthrown by rival Harkonnen's house, Paul Atreides runs away and is taken over by nomads known as Fremen. He becomes their messianic leader and works to lead a revolution on the planet to overthrow the Harkonnens. Herbert then wrote several sequels, while his son continued the series with a sprawling series that continued to grow and explore the world.
