Are We Finally Getting the Dune We Deserve?

Scifi fans rejoice! More casting news has come out about the upcoming Dune adaptation (remake), and we’re over the moon. This could finally be the Dune we deserve.

Still from original Dune adaptation

Oscar Isaac is the latest casting announcement to hit the web about the upcoming adpatation of Dune. Isaac has been cast as Leto Atreides, with Denis Villeneuve directing. It’s been far too loing (or maybe just long enough) since someone has brought this scifi epic to the big screen. With technology now, we feel the CGI and talent assembled will possibly create the epic landscape and world forged within the pages of Frank Herbert’s Dune. Aside from Oscar Isaac we can all also expect to enjoy Dave Bautista on screen, while Rebecca Ferguson is joining as Lady Jessica and of course it’s star will be Timothy Chalamet as Paul “Muad’Dib” Atreides.

Director Denis Villeneuve has previously revealed that bringing Dune to the big screen would be at least a dual movie adaptation, possibly more. We can’t wait to see the finished project! What are your thoughts on the casting so far? Who would you like to see bring the world of Dune to life?
