This has kind of gotten by me. Looks like Denis Villeneuve is casting Dune and I saw somewhere mention of production start date of March.
Now not surprised , Dune , should have more buzz appeal than Blade Runner 2049* did. (Tho Villeneuve says in interviews that Alcon did marketing surveys for that film and they were positive). Even tho Blade Runner 2049 slumped at the box office, I can see Legendary funding him, studios like directors who have been able to bring off a difficult big budget film (no matter the box office).
Am a bit surprised because this is going to be a Big Budget film , in fact, supposed to be two films. Welp Villeneuve has shown that he is serious about film narrative and production values. It will be very interesting since Dune is a good high level Space Opera ( I am not taken by any of the sequels either by Herbert or his Son).
*Nearing the anniversary of Blade Runner 2049, it is the only film from 2017 that sticks in my mind , and that was among some very good films.)
