Man I loved the Dune movie. I think I loved the Dune II video game even more. How many of you played it non-stop? “Harkonnen units approaching from the South”. Even though the original was such a great movie (like Clash of the Titans), I think a remake is in order.
Hollywood insider gives us the news:
Paramount has found a new director for its remake of the sci-fi classic Dune, after Peter Berg dropped off the project in October. The studio has hired Taken helmer Pierre Morel to oversee the movie. Paramount is currently looking for a new writer to incorporate Morel’s vision of the project into the original draft by Quantum of Solace scribe Josh Zetumer. Morel plans to make a very faithful adaptation of the 1965 book by Frank Herbert. The movie is a high priority for Paramount’s production chief Adam Goodman. Kevin Misher and Richard Rubinstein are producing.
