WarnerMedia's next streaming service has given the green light to produce a series based on that of Frank Herbert dune novels, according to one report in Variety. Series, Dune: sorority, "Is told through the eyes of a mysterious order of women known as Bene Gesserit. Endowed with extraordinary abilities by their mastery of body and mind, the Bene Gesserit skilfully cross feudal politics and the plot of the Imperium, pursuing their own projects that will eventually lead them to the enigmatic planet Arrakis, known to its inhabitants as Dune. "Director Denis Villeneuve (L & # 39; s arrival, Blade Runner 2049) will lead the pilot episode and co-produce the series.
"The Bene Gesserit have always fascinated me," said Villeneuve in a statement quoted by Variety. "Focusing a series around this powerful women's order seemed not only relevant and inspiring, but also a dynamic setting for the TV series."
The description does not expressly say that the series is a prequel to Villeneuve planned dune movie, an early adaptation of Herbert's novel beginning his series in 1965 dune. But Jon Spaihts, the screenwriter of the film, will also write the series and co-produce alongside Villeneuve. It seems that the series and the film are part of the same continuity.
And if the Bene Gesserit – a secret order that manipulates lineages and disseminates their teachings to improve and enlighten humanity – have not yet visited Arrakis in the series, the series takes place before the film. It seems unlikely, however, that he arrives on the streaming service of WarnerMedia before its theatrical release in November 2020. The service does not yet have an official launch date. launch later this yearand be "Fully operational" by March 2020.
