DUNE Gets A Release Date - Denis Villeneuve's Sci-Fi Reboot Hits Theaters On November 20, 2020

Now that the all-star cast of Denis Villeneuve's Dune has been rounded out, Legendary has announced that the highly-anticipated retelling of Frank Herbert's classic sci-fi novel will be with us next year.

The spice must flow, and it'll start flowing quite a bit sooner than most of us expected.

Legendary Pictures has announced that Denis Villeneuve's upcoming re-adaptation of Frank Herbert's Dune will hit theaters on Nov. 20, 2020. Last night, we found out that Aquaman himself Jason Momoa had signed on to play the heroic Duncan Idaho, and he's just the latest big name to join the pretty damn incredible ensemble cast.

Dune will also star: Timothee Chalamet as Paul Atreides, Javier Bardem as Stilgar Zendaya as Chani Oscar Isaac as Duke Leto Atreides, Rebecca Ferguson as Lady Jessica, Stellan Skarsgard as Baron Harkonnen, Dave Bautista as "The Beast" Rabban and Charlotte Rampling as the Reverend Mother. 

For those unfamiliar with the source material, Dune follows the Atreides family as they relocate to the desolate planet of Arrakis to assume control of the production of the most valuable resource in the galaxy, the Spice Melange. Unfortunately, an act of treachery soon makes an outcast of The Duke Atreides' youngest son Paul, and he must accept his destiny as a powerful prophet of the Arrakis natives known as The Fremen.

There have been several different adaptions of Dune over the years, the most famous - or infamous, depending on your perspective - is David Lynch's ambitious, but flawed 1984 movie starring Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Kyle MacLachlan. This latest take will be produced by Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, and Cale Boyter, with Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt, and Kim Herbert serving as executive producers.
