Denis Villeneuve’s interpretation of the classic 1965 Frank Herbert novel will see Dune adapted to the big screen using ground-breaking artificial backdrops to bring Dune’s feudal interstellar society to life.

At the forefront of the film’s technology is DNEG, a London-based VFX house whose virtual production credits already included Interstellar and First Man – for which it received Academy Awards.

Driven by the impact of Covid-19, DNEG is continuing to develop through exciting partnerships. With Dimension, Unreal Engine, Arri, Mo-Sys, 80six, Roe and Brompton Technology, DNEG is shooting a proof-of-concept virtual production test, led by creative director Paul Franklin.
