“Dune: Sisterhood” – Series On The Way, Denis Villeneuve Directs
The streaming service for WarnerMedia has ordered a series for their next Sci-Fi project Dune: Sisterhood.
The show itself comes from Legendary Television who is also producing the upcoming reboot film with the same name. Villeneuve is also set to direct the movie too with Warner Bros. as its distributor. Villeneuve has previously directed Blade Runner 2049, Arrival and two of Sicario.
The series is based on Frank Herbert’s epic novel series with the same name. According to Variety.com, the series told from the perspective by an order of mysterious women, also known as Bene Gesserit. The order has special abilities to manipulate and mastering their environment to lead them to Dune itself. Jon Spaihts is set to write. Denis Villeneuve, Spaihts and Eric Roth co-wrote the script for the feature film. With this series, Legendary is planning to expand Dune as a franchise on multi-platforms.
“The Bene Gesserit have always been fascinating to me,” Villeneuve said. “Focusing a series around that powerful order of women seemed not only relevant and inspiring but a dynamic setting for the television series.
First movies were released in 1984 and directed by David Lynch. Dune has been adapted for TV before and the reboot film is set to be released in theaters on November 20, 2020. Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, and Stellan Skarsgård is some among the actors in the talented cast.
