Even Denis Villeneuve, a similar talent but a much smaller name in Hollywood compared to Nolan, received a big project such as Dune after Blade Runner 2049 failed to meet expectations.

Damn, I'm so hyped for Dune. Denis Villeneuve is my favorite director followed by David Fincher.

So hyped!  I'll be honest, I'm not that familiar with Villeneuve. I've seen Sicario and Arrival, but that's about it.  Interestingly enough, a trip to his page revealed that he's also directing a pilot for a Dune TV series called Dune: The Sisterhood, obviously referring to the Bene Gesserits.  I guess it's good to have both in the works.  I just really hope that they hit the landing on the film.  I love Lynch's version for its tone and set design, but the story it ultimately tells does a disservice to the novel.  Of course, it's still miles and miles better than the TV mini series they made on the SciFi channel.
