The film production and development
The novel Dune was for many years seen as a potential prospect for a film after its publication in 1965. The rights to create the film were in the hands of many producers since 1971. There are already two adaptations of the novel. One was the 1984 film Dune directed by David Lynch. Another was 2000 miniseries and Richard P. Rubinstein served as the producer for the series. So the new live-action adaptation of Dune is a highly expected film.
For many years a lot of content in the novel made it hard for the filmmakers to adapt it into a live-action film. However, the posters of 2020 Dune are amazing. It looks promising and will be a great film.
We can expect 2020 Dune to be a successful film because the story is great and the casts chosen are brilliant for the roles. So stay tuned science fiction fans for an ultimate treat.
