Dune Is ‘THE Definitive Film Adaptation Of Frank Herbert’s Classic Novel,’ Says Son

Dune gets a compelling push from Frank Herbert’s son.

Yeah, you’ll probably need to rein in your overall excitement for Dune. Despite the fact that the movie is pretty much ready to go for its previous December release, it ain’t coming. Thanks to the pandemic, the movie was pushed to October of 2021. This means that you’ll have to wait roughly ten more months before you can indulge in director Denis Villeneuve’s vision. But I guess it’s not the worst thing in the world to get in a good sound byte from an important figure.

Brian Herbert, Dune author Frank Herbert’s son, has been a steward of the Dune series for many years. In fact, alongside co-author Kevin J. Anderson, he’s gone on to write more entries in the series than his father before him. As such, his perspective on the upcoming film is one worth hearing about. Can this Hollywood take live up to what fans have dreamed up for years?

“I was very impressed by the trailer,” Brian Herbert told Inverse, “and I was thrilled to actually be on the movie set in Budapest last year, where my wife and I watched the filming of several scenes. This is a really big movie, a major project that will forever be considered THE definitive film adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic novel. Fans are going to love this movie. Denis Villeneuve is the perfect director to do Dune.”

Sadly, it doesn’t sound like Herbert had a chance to actually see a finished cut of the film, so make sure to take his comments with a grain of salt. And, at the end of the day, he is still steeped in the world of Dune. As such, it is in his best interest to talk up the film as much as possible.

In addition to a new comic book based on their first novel House Atreides, Herbert and Anderson are also hard at work on a prequel series of novels. Needless to say, there’s still a lot of Dune for fans to indulge in in the years to come, film or no film.

Do the comments from Dune author Frank Herbert’s son get you any more excited for the film to come? Do you think you’ll indulge in the comic or prequel series? Let us know your thoughts down below!
