Dune: Legendary Pictures acquired the rights. Coming to a tv series or a movie?
Legendary Pictures acquired the rights to the novel by Frank Herbert, Dune. We will soon see a new film or a tv series inspired by the work of 1965?
It's been over 30 years since the release of David Lynch movies at the cinema, and today we learn that Legendary Pictures has acquired the rights to the novel Dune, written by Frank Herbert.
The new agreement, entered into between the heirs of Herbert and Legendary Pictures, it seems to predict not only the possibility of realizing a new film adaptation of the work, but also a tv series. Curiously, not long ago, the director Denis Villeneuve said to be interested in making a new film of Dune (you never know...).
We do not know which of the two format will choose the studio in Burbank (or maybe opt for both), but we already know that the production there will be Thomas Tull, Mary Parent and Cale Boyter, while Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt, and Kim Herbert will be the executive producers.
What is certain is that Legendary Pictures, with this acquisition, has all the intentions of making a new franchise, too long neglected.
Winner of the Nebula award and the Hugo award, Dune is the first of six novels written by Frank Herbert in 1965 known as the Cycle of the Dunes (and later extended by his son Brian and by the writer Kevin J. Anderson). The events are set on the desert-like planet of Arrakis, where the dynasty Atreides and the Harkonnen are vying for control of the spice, a substance essential for the livelihood of the entire galaxy which is set in the novel.
