Legendary Pictures have been looking for a director for their upcoming Dune reboot for some time, and as announced by Brian Herbert (the son of Frank Herbert), Denis Villeneuve is on board.

Whilst Legendary Pictures have secured rights for both television and film, Villeneuve has only signed for the film.

Villeneuve has directed several popular movies, such as Sicario and Arrival. He’s also directing the sequel to the phenomenal 1982 movie, Blade Runner. Blade Runner 2049 is scheduled for release on October 6th 2017.
