Official Dune Synopsis Released – Reboot Has Begun Filming


The highly anticipated reboot of Dune has officially begun filming, which should excite many as this Denis Villeneuve film has a large cast of A-listers to add to the allure of the film. While the David Lynch adaptation in 1984 was unsuccessful, Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel has become a classic in the science fiction genre.

Dune will include: “Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides, Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica, Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto Atreides, Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck, Stellan Skarsgård as Baron Harkonnen, Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho, Zendaya as Chani, Javier Bardem as Stilgar and Charlotte Rampling as Gaius Helen Mohiam, and Chang Chen as Dr. Yueh.” (Source: Screen Rant)

Below is the official synopsis:

A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, “Dune” tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
