First it was her composer, who later ended up winning the Oscar for jokerand now it will be its director who will have a very important job on his hands.
It is Johan Renck from Chernobyl who was chosen to design the first two pilot episodes of the prequel series of dunes for HBO Max (via). In the first instance it would be Denis Villeneuve who would be in charge of directing the first chapter of the series.

The series will tell a story set 10,000 years before the events of the film, where the Harkonnen Sisters come together to combat an evil force that threatens the existence of the universe.
