New ‘Dune’ Film Coming?

Sci Fi Wire talked to director Peter Berg about his planned adaptation of the Frank Herbert sci-fi classic Dune. The original Dune novel was followed by five sequels written by Herbert and a couple of prequels, adapted into a 1984 film by David Lynch and a mini-series made by the Sci Fi Channel in 2000.

Here’s an excerpt from the interview:

Berg sees the story more as an epic adventure. “[The book] was much more muscular and adventurous, more violent and possibly even a little bit more fun,” Berg said. “I think those are all elements of my experience of the book that can be brought in without offending the die-hard fans of the Bene Gesserit and Kwisatz Haderach. There’s a more dynamic film to be made.”
