Denis Villeneuve’s Dune

Kevin Burwick:

Dune is one of Denis Villeneuve’s favorite books of all time, along with George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. When talking about a chance at directing another big screen adaptation of the iconic source material, the director knew that getting the rights was going to be difficult. He says, “For me it was just a dream, and I guess I’m lucky that Mary Parent from Legendary got the rights and offered it to me.” Villeneuve continued by revealing, “I can’t say no to that. I have images that I am haunted by for 35 years. I will not say no to that. That’s going to be the project of my life.”
