    [Movie] Dune movie confirmed

    https://twitter.com/DuneAuthor/statu...41857400565760
    It's official -- Legendary Pictures has signed the very talented Denis Villeneuve to direct the exciting new DUNE series film project.
    First Blade Runner, now Dune. If he doesn't screw up these two he'll be like a new God-director of Sci-fi movies.
    Oh, hi.

    I'm very happy and proud of Denis Villeneuve. I can't wait to see what he will do with this gargantuan saga.

    I hope we'll get the real Baron Harkonnen, and not the screaming pustulant maniac David Lynch gave us. And no milk from a cat with a rat grafted on her back, please! Or heartplugs. I mean, I don't hate the first movie, but some things were just... weird. Pardon the euphemism.

    Nothing beats that scene where Sting pops out of that shower in his speedo!

    I do hope they keep the original soundtrack in the remake cause the music was one of the few things that was totally awesome in David Lynchs Dune

    Doubtful. Scores are tailor-made to scenes.

    Call me a cynic but I don't have high hopes.

    I demand a scene of Baron Harkonnen raping an underage boy.

    Exciting. The original Dune series is fantastic. However, it seems "the son" is involved and doesn't want to start the movie series with book 1 from the original series. I'm guessing he wants to make a crappy prequel from the content of his own crappy fanfiction-worthy books. We'll see how it goes.

    *cries real tears*

    Actually I'm not too heart-broken, I think the scifi mini-series did a decent job of adapting Dune and Children of Dune, I doubt we'll get anything much better (barring effects and acting) in anything that's under 4 hours.

    yes! the only thing missing is they need to bring in David Arkenstone who did the soundtrack to Emperor: Battle for Dune, fucking masterful work he did there.

    It won't have Patrick Stewart. That's a strike against it already.

    The David lynch version was great. If someone like Stanly Kubrick was still alive, he could make a good version of doom. They should get Michael Fassbinder to play Paul Atreides.

    I just hope they hand out glossaries before showings.

    The original version by David Lynch and produced by Rafaela Di Laurentis was 5.5 hours long.

    And MAN would I pay REAL money for that version.

    The studio wouldn't allow anything remotely like that to run and forced massive cuts rather than go with an "experiment in film".

    So, the movie is a disjointed series of vignettes that make sense if you've read the books, but otherwise... it's just a strange film.

    I really hope they get this right.

    Dune is my favorite Sci-fi series of all time.

    I actually met Frank Herbert 2 months before he died and got a signed copy of Chapterhouse: Dune in Hardback.

    Yeah, Denis Villeneuve just did an outstanding job on Prisoners and Sicario.

    Hopes are now raised to Condition Orange...
