Posted By:

Providing finance are Alcon Entertainment who paired with Denis on Bladerunner 2049 and who also brought us The Expanse.

Want to know what it's about?

Avoiding spoilers, Wikipedia says:

Set in the 2130s, the story involves a 50-by-20-kilometre (31 by 12 mi) cylindrical alien starship that enters the Solar System. The story is told from the point of view of a group of human explorers who intercept the ship in an attempt to unlock its mysteries.

With Dune II still to be filmed this one is probably a long way off.
