Shortly after its publication in 1965, Dune was determined to have potential film prospects. Since 1971, several filmmakers have the right to adapt novels into movies. Because of its extensive content, it is difficult to adapt to the screen. The well-known filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky obtained the rights to a luxurious 10-hour adaptation of the book in the 1970s, but the project failed. Later efforts to make this film have been recorded in the documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune (2013). Dune, directed by David Lynch in 1984, and a small TV series produced by Richard P. Rubinstein, produced by Richard P. Rubinstein in 2000, Richard P. Rubinstein ) Since 1996, he has owned the film rights of Dune.
In 2008, Paramount Pictures announced that they were adapting a new feature film based on Frank Herbert’s “Dune”, with Peter Berg as the director. Berg left the project in October 2009, and director Pierre Morel was appointed as the director in January 2010. Before Paramount abandoned the project in March 2011, because they could not reach an important agreement, their rights were also Will continue to Rubinstein (Rubinstein).
On November 21, 2016, it was announced that Legendary Pictures had obtained the film and TV rights for Dune. In December 2016, Variety reported that director Denis Villeneuve was in talks with the studio to direct the film. In September 2016, Villeneuve expressed his interest in the project.
He said: “My long-term dream is to adapt Dune, but the process of obtaining copyright is very long. I don’t think I will succeed. “Villeneuve said that he felt he was not going to direct a “Dune” movie unless he completed projects such as “Arrival” and “Blade Runner 2049” and set the background of science fiction movies. “Dune It’s my world”. By February 2017, Frank’s son, Brian Herbert, author of follow-up books in the Dune series, confirmed that Villeneuve would be in charge of the project.
John Nelson was hired as the film’s visual effects supervisor in July 2018 but has since left the project. It was announced in December 2018 that Roger Deakins, the photographer originally scheduled to be reunited with Villeneuve in the movie, would not work on the sand dunes, and Greig Fraser would serve as the photographer Director.

Rubinstein), John Harrison (John Harrison) and Herbert W. Kevin J. Anderson (Kevin J. Anderson) is a creative consultant. Game of Thrones language creator David Peterson (David Peterson) was confirmed in April 2019 that he was developing a language for the film.
In March 2018, Villeneuve stated that his goal is to adapt the novel into a two-part film series. Villeneuve eventually reached a deal with Warner Bros. Pictures for two films, with the same style as Stephen King’s two film adaptations in 2017 and 2019. He said: “Dune” movies are “too complicated” and “the power of details” makes a movie impossible to capture. Eric Roth was hired in April to co-write the script with others, Jon Spa Jon Spaihts was later confirmed to have co-written the script with Roth and Villeneuve.
Villeneuve stated in May 2018 that the first draft of the script has been completed. Brian Herbert confirmed in July 2018 that the latest draft of the script covers “about half of the novel dune.” The legendary CEO Joshua Grode confirmed in April 2019 that they plan to make a sequel, adding: “Before the book ends, there is a reasonable place to stop [the first ] Movies.” In November 2019, Spaihts starred in the “Dune: Sisters” TV prequel series, focusing on the second film.
Villeneuve said of his vision of Dune: “Most of the main ideas of Star Wars come from Dune, so solving this problem will be a challenge. The ambition is to make a “Star Wars” movie that I have never seen before. , This is an adult’s Star Wars.” Although Villeneuve had watched Lynch’s adaptation of Dune and respected Lynch and the movie, he didn’t want to be based on it. He said, “I want to go back Go to the book and take a look at the images that appeared in the past. I have read it when he was a teenager.
In addition, Villeneuve does not intend to incorporate the concept that Chodorowski put forward when he tried to make Dune movies in the mid-1970s, because Villeneuve said: “Chowdulowski is a very unique visionary. He has a very strong and unique perspective. I am a completely different person. I would be very conceited and arrogant to try this.”
When adapting a book written in the 1960s for the 21st century, Villeneuve wanted to reflect on the reality of the over-exploitation of the earth, and believed that his script “is an adult story and a reason to call for action.” Young people.” Other changes include changing certain arcs of the female characters in the book. Rebecca Ferguson, who plays Jessica Lady, said: “Dennis respects Frank’s work in the book very much. However, the quality of the arc of many women has been raised to a new level.
He has made some changes and is now portrayed beautifully. “Mrs. Jessica was given more soldier roles and became part of Bene Gesserit. Compared with the studio, the studio was called the “Warrior Priestess.” Villeneuve felt that the book was impressive With the joke of “space nun”, the ecologist Dr. Little Keynes of Arakis, the hero of the novel, was also given to the heroine Sharon Duncan Brewster to help expand the diversity of actors. He also Want to turn Baron Vladimir Harkonen from a character in a novel into a more complicated opponent.
