Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve is now shooting his massive Dune remake with Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac and a boatload of other pretty people.

"The Bene Gesserit have always been fascinating to me", Villeneuve said in a statement.

Called Dune: The Sisterhood, the series - produced by Legendary Television and going on Warnermedia - will follow the lives of a mysterious order of women known as the Bene Gesserit, who embark on a journey to a mysterious planet called Arrakis, better known to its inhabitants as Dune. The title itself seems to be inspired by the Sisterhood of Dune novel that was a part of an ongoing prequel series from writers Brian Herbert and Keven J. Anderson.

With production under way and the vast majority of casting announcements now behind us, we thought that the days of our James Dyer Dune-blabbing on the podcast might be behind us.

Secret of Mana Collection Finally Coming West; Out Later Today
A physical release will be available at participating retailers and the Square Enix Store starting August 27. The fabled SNES sequel to Secret of Mana is getting a fresh localization and you can play it today .

There are over 20 books in the Dune series (six written by Frank Herbert, with Brian Herbert and Anderson writing the rest), so this show (and the new duo of films) is potentially just the sandy tip of the Dune-berg when it comes to potential content. Spaihts and Villeneuve also co-wrote the screenplay for the film along with Eric Roth. Let us know in the comment section below! Charlotte Rampling has been cast in the Dune film as a senior member of the order, Gaius Helen Mohiam. Legendary acquired the film and television rights to Frank Herbert's novel in November 2016 with Arrival director Denis Villeneuve officially signing on to helm a feature film reboot in February 2017.

This is not the first time "Dune" has been adapted for television.

Dune is now set to be released on November 20th, 2020. David Lynch directed a Dune film that was released in 1984.
