A documentary about a Dune that was never made:

I don't have much to say about it, just thought some here might be interested in it.

I loved the original Dune and Children of Dune as both were excellent sci-fi mini-series that kept me captivated throughout.  In fact, I enjoyed then that much I shall get out the DVDs and spend the afternoon in front of the TV... and why not, it's Sunday.

Having said that, I do like the idea of somebody picking up the ball on this remake idea, given all the advances in cinematography that could really open up the entire project to encompass anything the imagination can produce, especially if HR Giger is involved in set and creature design and production, as he was in the first 2 series.  I have admired his art and imagination since like forever, so here's hoping it gets to go ahead.

Orright, so who do we petition for something like this???... and if EVERY Stardock member signed it, as well as all their friends and family, we might actually have something going here.

Its not an attempt to do a version of Dune. This is a documentary about the original Dune movie concept, the one that didn't get made. Giger worked on it, but again it did not get made. I think he did work on David Lynch's version.

I loved the Lynch movie warts and all.The design is still one of the most unique in the genre.

Its a weird movie though. But then again, what from David Lynch isnt, right?

Bugger!  And double bugger with gnarls on top.

Still, a modern-day remake with all the bells and whistles available to today's film makers would be fantastic.

Triple bugger! [e digicons]:'([/e]
