If you liked Arrival, then you really should be excited about the upcoming Dune film relaunch.

That’s because Legendary Pictures has tapped Arrival‘s Oscar-nominated director, Denis Villeneuve to bring Frank Herbert’s story back to life on the big screen.

Brian Herbert, the son of the late author, broke the news Wednesday on Twitter, according to Dark Horizons.

Villeneueve earned his first Oscar nomination just last week for Arrival, about aliens coming to Earth, and a linguist played by Amy Adams tasked to communicate with them. The film is up for seven other nominations, but all – except for best picture – are in technical categories.
