Legendary Pictures has been working on a new adaptation for some time, with Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve at the helm and Brian Herbert (Frank’s son, and author himself) on board as a consultant.
Brian Herbert posted on Twitter: “Intense activity on the movie . . . While the next draft of the screenplay is being written, Legendary also has a scout at work, traveling to several countries to look at possible filming locations . . . for desert and other scenes.”
