Dune will hit cinemas on 20 November 2020.
Meanwhile, the unasked-for Dune TV series, The Sisterhood, has gotten a writing and showrunning team. Dana Calvo (Good Girls Revolt) and Jon Spaihts (Prometheus, allegedly a very good script before Damon Lindelof got his hands on it) will be the main showrunners and writers, with Jordan Harper (Hightown), Sarah Carbiener (You're the Worst, Rick & Morty), Erica Rosbe (Homecoming, Rick & Morty), and Minhal Baig (Hala) also working as writers. Reza Aslan, a non-fiction writer and producer on shows including The Leftovers, is also working on the project.
The Sisterhood is one of the first original shows greenlit for HBO Max, WarnerMedia's new streaming service.
