Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista is set to reunite with his Blade Runner 2049 director Denis Villeneuve on the filmmaker’s latest project, a two-part adaptation of the Frank Herbert sci-fi epic Dune.
As per Variety, Dune follows “Paul Atreides, whose family assumes control of the desert planet Arrakis. As the only producer of a highly valuable resource, jurisdiction over Arrakis is contested among competing noble families. After Paul and his family are betrayed, the story explores themes of politics, religion, and man’s relationship with nature, as Paul leads a rebellion to restore his family’s reign.”
Bautista will next be seen reprising his role as Drax the Destroyer in Marvel’s Avengers: Endgame, and also has the action comedies Stuber and My Spy and action threequel Escape Plan 3: Devil’s Station all incoming this year.
