Oscar winning scriptwriter Eric Roth, whose previous credits include Forrest Gump and Munich, is set to tackle the imposing work of author Frank Herbert’s Dune.

Legendary Pictures acquired the rights from Frank Herbert’s estate in 2016, and with hot director Denis Villeneuve at the helm, the remake of the 1984 sci-fi seems to be shaping up well.

Roth, who won the Oscar for Forrest Gump, and picked up nominations for The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and Munich, hasn’t had much experience penning a sci-fi script before, but certainly has the accolades to show for his previous success, and with director Denis Villeneuve on something of a sci-fi roll at the moment, with 2016’s Arrival, and the hotly anticipated sequel Blade Runner 2049 arriving later this year, this could be another award-winning match.

I spend about 80 percent of my time talking about movies. And the other 20 percent of the time, I'm praying for someone else to bring up movies so I could talk about movies more. Obsessed with Star Wars, Marvel, and all things film. I also know more pointless Jaws facts than you could shake a mechanical shark at.
