Dune is one of the most awaited Hollywood films. When this film project was officially announced, of course, it was happy news for everyone around the world who heard it, because this film was adapted from a prestigious novel in the world. Not to mention, this film was also attended by Timotheé Chalamate and other famous hollywood stars, so I can’t wait for this film to come. What will this film be like, then? Make me curious.
The second adaptation of the novel by Frank Herbert
The story in the Dune film is apparently adapted from the novel by Frank Herbert with the same title. This novel was published in 1965. Not only that, this book turned out to have a next series entitled Dune Messiah and published in 1969.
Reporting from the Entertainment Weekly page , the story in the novel for the film will tell about House Atreides giving sovereignty over the desert planet Arraksi (better known as “Dune”). Although most of Arraksi’s atmosphere is unsettled, Arrakis is the most valuable thing because there is a source of a spice called Melange. Melange has the benefit of increasing mental abilities.
Not only that, it turns out that the Dune (2020) film is a reboot film project from the previous film that was made in 1984 and directed by David Lynch. Dune (1984) stars Kyle MacLachlan, Virginia Madsen, Francesca Annis, Linda Hunt, and more.
When viewed from the previous film, the upcoming Dune (2020) film, will most likely have the same genre as the previous film, namely Action, Adventure, and Sci-Fi.
In this big project for the film Dune (2020) , of course, there will be a director who has been experienced in the film world for a long time. Denis Villeneuve was chosen to direct the process of making this film. This director is known for his success in directing box office films such as Arrival (2016) and Blade Runner (2049).
Undoubted scriptwriter of the story
For the problem of writing the script for this film, the director also brought two experienced scriptwriters.
Eric Roth has experience writing film scripts for Forest Gump (1994), Munich (2005), The Curious of Benjamin Button (2008), and A Star Is Born (2018)
Jon Spaihts has experience writing scripts for films on Prometheus (2012), Passengers (2016), and Doctor Strange (2016)
