Denis Villeneuve's plans for 'Dune' are quite ambitious, as he hopes to make it the 'Star Wars' he never saw. In an interview, he explained that most of the main ideas of 'Star Wars' came from 'Dune' so it will be a challenge to tackle this project. Villeneuve even said, "In a way, it's 'Star Wars' for adults."
This will be the third adaptation of Frank Herbert's epic novel, after David Lynch's 'Dune' (1984) and the three-episode miniseries 'Dune' (2000).
Denis Villeneuve confirmed that his adaptation of 'Dune' will be split into at least two films, in order to ensure that the original story would be "preserved and not cut into a million pieces."
