Get your comfiest pillows ready. It's time for yet another version of
the incredibly boring, insomnia-curing, called "Dune". :-(

From ComingSoon.net ...

Dune movie release date set for November 2020
Warner Bros. Pictures has set the Dune movie release date!
Director Denis Villeneuve's new adaptation of the classic
Frank Herbert novel will arrive in theaters on November 20,
2020. Currently no other film is scheduled for release on
that date, but the movie opens just after Paramount's new
Rugrats movie and Universal Pictures' Red Notice. Dune will
also debut five days ahead of an Untitled Disney Animation

The new Dune movie will feature an all-star ensemble cast
that includes Timothee Chalamet (Call Me by Your Name),
Oscar Isaac (Star Wars: Episode IX), Zendaya (Spider-Man:
Far From Home), Oscar winner Javier Bardem (No Country for
Old Men), Stellan Skarsgard (Thor), Rebecca Ferguson
(Mission: Impossible - Fallout), Charlotte Rampling (45
Years), Josh Brolin (Sicario), Jason Momoa (Aquaman), and
Dave Bautista (Avengers: Infinity War).

Set in the distant future, Dune follows Paul Atreides, whose
family assumes control of the desert planet Arrakis. As the
only producer of a highly valuable resource, jurisdiction
over Arrakis is contested among competing noble families. A
fter Atreides is betrayed, he leads a rebellion to restore
his family's reign.

Dune was previously adapted by David Lynch in 1985, and it
was also a series of TV miniseries starting in 2000 on SYFY. 
Blade Runner 2049 and Arrival director Denis Villeneuve will
helm the Dune remake. Eric Roth and Jon Spaihts wrote the
script, and it is being produced by Legendary Pictures.

If Dune proves to have better luck at the box office than
Lynch's film, then there's plenty of material for sequels.
Herbert wrote five additional Dune novels before his death in
1986. Herbert's son, Brian Herbert and novelist Kevin J.
Anderson collaborated on a number of Dune books as well.
Brian Herbert and Anderson are both involved with the Dune 
remake, as an executive producer and creative consultant,
