It has been officially announced via Brian Herbert that the upcoming Dune remake will be directed by Denis Villeneuve. Villeneuve is the Oscar-nominated director of Arrival and Sicario, and the director of the upcoming Blade Runner sequel. What we’re saying is, Villeneuve is clearly the new “it” director for SF films, and he is already doing an excellent job. So this is good news!
