The highly-anticipated adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel stars Timothée Chalamet and Zendaya
The upcoming adaptation of Frank Herbert’s 1965 sci-fi novel was originally scheduled for December 18 this year, but when the first trailer dropped in September, it came without a release date.
The news comes on the heels of other major film reshufflings, including The Batman (starring Robert Pattinson) and No Time To Die, which are also affected.
Featuring Timothée Chalamet as Paul Atreides, the son of a noble family, and Zendaya as Chani, a love interest to whom he’s mysteriously linked, Dune takes place on the dangerous mining planet Arrakis. Also starring are Oscar Isaac, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, and Javier Bardem.
Still, things look on track to find more success than David Lynch’s 1984 adaptation, not to mention the many other disastrous attempts at making the film over the years. Coming straight from the horse's mouth, Zendaya recently called the new version “incredible”.
