I was reading about this on Chronicles the other day. I think something like this has been talked about for a while now. I thought it would make a better HBO special, and probably would be a pretty poor movie.

I'm sure it'll be mediocre, but at least these guys know how to show some respect foor the work of art they're basing a film on.
"This is not a script you can knock out in six months,"


I wish Berg would at least acknowledge the complexities of Dune instead of saying "it's really just a great hero action story". He's officially on my list of famous people I'm allowed to punch in the face if I ever meet them. :x

I found the books underwhelming and overrated, but I still have the utmost
respect for Assimov. Just wasn't my bag.

I think it was Tim O'Riley who called Foundation, "Dune Light".
