#2. DUNE (18 Dec)
If you were blown away by the visuals of his Blade Runner 2049, well, there should be plenty more here, as French Canadian filmmaker Denis Villeneuve has decided to helm a new adaptation of Dune—starring Timothee Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, and Zendaya. Studio Warner Bros. is apparently so high on it that they’ve carved out an award-bait release date and already green-lit a sequel.
#6. THE FRENCH DISPATCH (tbd)
Filmmaker Wes Anderson has described his latest as “a love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in a fictional 20th-century French city,” so Richard Jewell this is not. Anderson’s upcoming film, his first live-action movie since the lovely Grand Budapest Hotel, stars half of Hollywood: Frances McDormand, Bill Murray, Timothee Chalamet, Jeffrey Wright, Benicio del Toro, Lea Seydoux, Tilda Swinton, Saoirse Ronan, Kate Winslet, Elisabeth Moss, Willem Defoe, Christoph Waltz, Adrien Brody, Jason Schwartzman, Henry Winkler, and many more.
