Put your stillsuits on baby because this movie is gonna be HOT.

Slated for release in 2020, the latest adaptation of Frank Herbert's 'Dune' is being directed by Canadian master Denis Villeneuve (whose impeccable track record includes Bladerunner 2049, Arrival, Sicario, Prisoners, and Enemy). Word is that the film will be a two parter, and actually follows the story of Paul Muad'dib from both the first book and its follow-up, Dune Messiah.

The casting revealed so far is:

Timothee Chalamet as Paul

Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica

Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto (in talks)

Josh Brolin as Gurney Halleck

Zendaya as Chani (in talks)

Stellan Skarsgaard as Baron Harkonnen

Dave Bautista as Rabban

Javier Bardem as Stilgar (in talks)

Jason Momoa as Duncan Idaho (in talks)

Charlotte Rampling as Reverend Mother

Assuming those still in negotiation go through, this is a pretty great cast for the movie in my opinion, and there are still a few big characters to go, including Feyd-Rautha and Duncan Idaho.

Literally was just wondering who they are going to cast as Idaho and...

Jason Momoa...

I'm unsure how I feel. I've followed him as far back as Stargate so I know he *can* act but the media machine has done him a real disservice since GOT.

I haven't kept up with him, but he was very good in The Red Road ( so sad they didn't continue that show ).

Ah, Stellan Skarsgaard is a demon, he'll make a great Baron :)

Unsure if you're saying that you recently read the book, or if you're telling people to go read it :P.

What's this, like the 3rd attempt at a movie? Ought to be a success then! I do hope it goes well though, better than the previous movies at least...

Well that, and read can often be read as read or read - there's not always enough context online to support one over the other.

Clearly he knows that a lot of us have read the book, so he would not be imperatively telling us to read it. Rather, he's stating that he just finished it himself, to which I can only say: Great! Now read Messiah, it's probably the best one in the series.

No I'm telling you guys to read the book. Instead of worrying about a movie.

Clearly....no f$&*"s given....
“No. I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me,

Themerchant's right. Who needs a Dune movie? They already made a great adaptation anyway. It's this movie called "Star Wars". It gets rid of all the boring political bullshit and character drama, and also cuts out 90% of the worldbuilding -- and let's be honest, if there's one thing about Dune that just about everybody can agree on, it's how fucking shitty the worldbuilding is, am I right?
