2000's Dune Miniseries Director Hopes Denis Villeneuve's Movies Bring New Viewers To His Adaptation

The Dune miniseries director John Harrison hopes Denis Villeneuve's movies will bring new viewers to his adaptation. Frank Herbert's seminal 1965 sci-fi novel has been adapted to the screen several times starting with David Lynch's Dune from 1984, which was a critical and commercial failure and was disowned by the director due to studio interference. In 2000, a three-part miniseries officially titled Frank Herbert's Dune aired on the Sci-Fi Channel. Villeneuve's Dune, with the first film released in 2021, has become the definitive adaptation due to its critical and commercial success.
