Here's an exciting bit of news to head into the weekend with: according to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. has officially slated Denis Villeneuve's Dune for a November 20th, 2020 release. On that day, it'll hit theaters in both 3D and IMAX. Our understanding is that this one's intended to be the first in a two film adaptation, so...if you're hoping to see this thing finished, make sure you see Dune upon release!
As previously reported, Villeneuve's film features a staggeringly awesome cast, including Timothee Chalamet (in the role of lead character Paul Atreides), Charlotte Rampling (as Reverend Mother Mohiam), Jason Momoa (Duncan Idaho), Dave Bautista ("Beast" Rabban), Oscar Isaac (Duke Leto Atreides), Rebecca Ferguson (Lady Jessica), Josh Brolin (Gurney Halleck), Javier Bardem (Stilgar), Zendaya (rumored to be playing Chani), and Stellan Skarsgard (the villainous Baron Harkonnen). It may also star one of our dads, but as of this writing no contracts have been signed on that front. Please stay tuned for updates.
And, indeed, stay tuned for many, many more updates on Dune as we inch ever closer to that Thanksgiving 2020 release date. We're sure there's gonna be much to cover between now and then, and we'll be along for the ride every step of the way. In the meantime, celebrate along with us in the comments below. This movie's gonna rule.
