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 deleted some of your posts because they were derailing the topic and not focusing on the issues asked, and instead going after the authors or their material. That's why. ~ BM

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".
They were destroyed because they lied pretentiously. Have no fear that my wrath
will fall upon you because of your innocent mistakes.
