Villeneuve To Helm "Dune" TV Series Pilot.
Oooh yeah.. I just loved his Blade Runner 2049 and I read all the Dune books back when I was a teenager so I am quite hopeful that the story will be properly handled this time.
Well, Villeneuve is massively talented, and I will definitely watch his Dune movies, but this TV series is apparently based off the Herbert Jr. novels... which I am not quite as impressed with as the originals. I hope it all turns out great, but I feel like none of the actors in the films will bother with the series.
