Fans of the collaboration between composer Hans Zimmer and director Denis Villeneuve’s work on Blade Runner 2049 should start getting excited. Zimmer will score Villeneuve’s next sci-fi adaptation Dune, according to a report from SlashFilm.
Dune is based on the 1965 novel by Frank Herbert of the same name. Another adaption was made and released in 1984 by David Lynch starring Kyle MacLachlan. SlashFilm obtained a synopsis of the film:
“A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, “Dune” tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.”
For its 55th anniversary, Dune will boast an all-star cast that includes Timothee Chalamet, Jason Momoa, Josh Brolin, Oscar Isaac, Dave Bautista, Rebecca Ferguson and more! Director Denis Villeneuve is the Academy Award nominated director of the much celebrated Arrival and the critically acclaimed Blade Runner 2049. Hans Zimmer is known for his work on The Dark Knight Trilogy, Man of Steel, and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. He will also score Wonder Woman 1984 set for release next year! Dune is the second collaboration between Villeneuve and Zimmer.
Dune is set to hit theaters on November 20, 2020!
