Boom Studios have bought the rights to do a Dune comic book and graphic novel based on the bestselling House Atreides prequel.
Dune: House Atreides will be adapted by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson who co-wrote the novel based on Frank Herbert’s notes. The whole project is being done in partnership with Herbert Properties LLC and in full coordination with Abrams ComicArts.
The twelve-issue series will share the story of a young slave, Duncan Idaho, trying to escape his cruel masters while a young Letro Atreides embarks on a fateful journey. Pardot Kynes hunts for secrets on the strange planet of Arrakis, and a violent coup is planned by the son of Emperor Elrood.
There’s a new Dune film coming, currently scheduled for November 20, which will star Dave Bautista, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Javier Bardem, Chang Chen, Tomothee Chalamet, and Charlotte Rampling.
Modiphius is also working on a Dune RPG which is known to have a wide range of creators attached including Khaldoun Khelil and Chris Spivey.
