Denis Villeneuve‘s Dune adaptation is finally coming together. The French-Canadian director gave an update on his highly anticipated take on Frank Herbert‘s notoriously difficult-to-adapt sci-fi series, which has challenged and felled great directors like David Lynch, Ridley Scott, and Alejandro Jodorowsky.

Dune is Frank Herbert’s seminal science-fiction novel published in 1965, years before the first Star Wars film came out in 1977. In fact, Star Wars director George Lucas has acknowledged the influence that Dune had on early drafts of A New Hope, so it’s fitting that Villeneuve may bring it full circle.
