For many fans, music can make or break a movie. In some instances, it elevates the work of the film to heights it otherwise would have been unable to achieve. When it comes to film scores, Hans Zimmer stands among the titans of the industry, having scored Gladiator, Inception, The Thin Red Line, The Last Samurai, Crimson Tide and The Dark Knight Trilogy, to name a small sampling of his iconic work.
Production has officially started on Denis Villeneuve’s Dune and Warner Bros./Legendary Pictures have officially announced the crew scheduled to begin work on the film. For fans of his music, you’ll be excited to hear that Zimmer has just been named as the composer of the film. This will be the second time he’s worked with the director, having also composed the score for Blade Runner 2049.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
A mythic and emotionally charged hero’s journey, Dune tells the story of Paul Atreides, a brilliant and gifted young man born into a great destiny beyond his understanding, who must travel to the most dangerous planet in the universe to ensure the future of his family and his people. As malevolent forces explode into conflict over the planet’s exclusive supply of the most precious resource in existence—a commodity capable of unlocking humanity’s greatest potential—only those who can conquer their fear will survive.
Based on a screenplay by Denis Villeneuve, Eric Roth, and Jon Spaihts, the film boasts an impressive cast that includes Oscar Isaac, Jason Momoa, Rebecca Ferguson, Josh Brolin, Zendaya, Dave Bautista, Javier Bardem, Stellan Skarsgard, and Timothee Chalamet. Dune is set for release on 20 November 2020.
