Eric Roth to Write Denis Villeneuve ‘Dune’ Reboot

Remake Of The Sci-Fi Epic

As Variety reports, Eric Roth, the writer behind Forrest Gump and the upcoming A Star is Born reboot, has officially been brought on board to write the remake of the sci-fi epic Dune, which Legendary Pictures secured the rights to make last Thanksgiving.

Denis Villeneuve— who is currently in post-production for Blade Runner 2049— was tapped to helm the project earlier this year. Along with Villeneuve, Mary Parent and Cale Boyter will produce, with Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt, and Kim Herbert serving as executive producers.
