Denis Villeneuve’s Dune Is Getting A Female-Led TV Show Spin-off
It’s been revealed that Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming Dune remake is getting a female-led TV show spin-off called Dune: The Sisterhood.
Frank Herbert’s sci-fi classic, Dune, is coming to the big screen next year and Denis Villeneuve is directing it. The film will star the likes of Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård and Dave Bautista.
However, it looks like Warner Bros. are also keen to bring Dune to the small screen as well and it’s now been revealed they’re looking to make a TV spin-off of the movie.
Yet, this TV spin-off series will be female-led and will be called Dune: The Sisterhood and it will be coming to WarnerMedia’s upcoming streaming service.
It’ll portray the events of Frank Herbert’s novels through the eyes of the Bene Gesserit which is a rather mysterious clan of women.
He’ll then serve as an executive producer on the show, and he revealed in a statement: “The Bene Gesserit have always been fascinating to me.”
He continued: “Focusing a series around that powerful order of women seemed not only relevant and inspiring but a dynamic setting for the television series.”
