Dune is an upcoming epic science fiction film directed by Denis Villeneuve with a screenplay by Jon Spaihts, Villeneuve, and Eric Roth. It is the first of a planned two-part adaptation of the 1965 novel of the same name by Frank Herbert, which will cover roughly the first half of the book.
Plot: Dune is set in a dystopian future of humanity, as Duke Leto Atreides (Timothée Chalamet) leads nomadic tribes in a battle to control the dangerous desert planet Arrakis, also known as Dune. Dune is the only source of the most valuable substance in the universe, “melange” (also called “spice”), a drug that extends human life, provides superhuman levels of thought, and makes faster-than-light travel practical.
