    Only in talks at the moment but by god, if this were to happen would be my most anticipated movie for many years.

    Now if only he gets to do it and has Deakens on board :eek:

    Indeed! I didn't think much of Sicario as a story but Deakins made it look amazing.

    Denis has put some fantastic films out in the last few years, his move to Sci-Fi is interesting and this could be fantastic indeed.

    Another reboot? I'd prefer a decent TV series, tbh. Dune has certainly got more material to fill one than something like Westworld, say. Plus this guy isn't around anymore:

    :(

    Visually Dune is easy to mess up.

    The problem with this is, that although I'm interested to see what Villeneuve will do with it, it's a story that is too complex for any film to really do it justice.

    Like a poster above, I'd like to see a TV series. But, if there is to be a TV series; will it have the budget to at least not look cheap and will it last long enough to actually complete the story, before being axed due to not capturing TV viewer's imaginations?

    Dune would struggle in a focus group, to be sure.

    If it doesn't feature Sting parading round in a pair of underpants, Patrick Stewart with a tube up his nose, loads of shaven headed women milling about the place, some repulsive fat bloke getting boils lanced and Kyle Maclachlan jabbering on about Spice and "Fear being the mind killer", then I don't wanna remake.

    :D

    I'm with you man! Still have that image of Sting embedded on the mind. The repulsive fat bloke not so much...

    It'd be right up his street, though: 5% philosophy; 5% beautiful gay romances; 90% BATTLES, OMMAGERD, AND THE END OF DAYS!!!!

    Yea like most said, a series would suit it better but better than nothing at all!
    I Would love another Dune game too, it was the only game that was ever close to C & C back in the day but then again another C & C would have been good, ie Generals 2 online only fiasco that got slated so bad they cancelled it... ******* EA as usual, bring back Westwood any day.

    Dune 2 was the first RTS, all the subsequent C&C games were based on it.

    Looking at that site, I see that Villeneuve is making at least 2 films. A story that warrants more than being crammed into one film, so a good decision.
