I have some faith in Villeneuve, he got Blade Runner right which was no small achievement. I also enjoyed Arrival, it was very thoughtful. I enjoyed the Lynch version but it suffered from being a contained movie IMO.

I really love both "Arrival" and "Blade Runner 2049" so I have high hopes for Dune.


I'm also a huge fan of the David Lynch film even though I concede it has its own set of flaws but I blame the producers for those flaws since Lynch did not have full creative control over the project.

I'm skeptical. The saving grace here is Villeneuve will have to follow Herbert's book and plot, which will help him avoid contrived plot devices that ruined Arrival. I didn't like Arrival at all, btw. It paled in comparison with Contact. Sagan's genius dramatically out staged Villeneuve's stylistic flourish. I do need to see Blade Runner 2049, though.

Oh, and I almost forgot--I did enjoy his 2013 film "Enemy," with Jake Gyllenahaal.

It all depends on how close they follow the lay and gist of the story.

Lynch's Dune looked great, but was an utter disgrace regardings the story.
Syfy's mini-series captured the story great, but had much lower production value. But I still prefer it over Lynch's Dune.

I'm not holding my breath about it being faithful to the original story.

Was Lynch's Dune that bad? It's been awhile since I've read the book and seen the movie, but I remember him following the book fairly well, the first half of the book anyway. Then he ran out of movie running time and had to condense the last half of the book into about 15 minutes of screen time. It's not perfect, but as far as book adaptations go, it's definitely above average.

I loved that movie! Saw it in the theater. Some major additions straying from the book, but I enjoyed it.

Book is a political drama set in space..Making that look pretty on the big screen is always going to be hard.

I enjoyed the Lynch movie as a quick notes version of the book...


Looking forward to the movie, but I feel to do this real justice they need to go full on game of thrones production. Maybe a season a book, but more like 2-3 seasons a book....

If this first film does well at the box office, the studio (Legendary) plans on making more.

The major complaint leveled against the film is that it left out a lot of stuff from the novel and it made some major changes. For example, all of the intrigue with Feyd on Giedi Prime was cut out and the "Weirding Way" of the Bene Gesserit was radically changed from being something more akin to martial arts in the novel to being a sound controlled hand held weapon in the movie.


The fundamental problem as I alluded to before is that Lynch did not have "final cut" on the movie. He had to compromise with the producers on the creative direction of the film.

Kenneth McMillan is my fan-boy choice as best actor for the character of Baron Vladimir Harkonnen. He made me almost physically ill in his portrayal as the Baron Vladimir Harkonnen in the Lynch version of Dune. smile Somebody special needs to take this role for the new version.

In case you were curious LB, principal photography is done. From now until next December it will be all post production stuff. Special effects, music, editing, etc.

I am not expecting the soundtrack for this film to top what Toto did for Lynch’s film but Hans Zimmer will turn in a worthy effort I’m sure.

Instead of redoing Dune they should be continuing the series like Chapterhouse or Sandworms of Dune..

I see your point but the problem with that is most of the audience will be lost if this new film doesn’t start from the beginning. The Lynch film came out 36 years ago and is mostly remembered only by hardcore fans.

And the TV miniseries for Dune and Children of Dune came out 20 and 17 years ago and are only barely remembered by hardcore fans.
