IMDB says we'll get another "Dune" movie next year. There aren't any details yet, so it may still be dropped. But if they go with it, I hope like hell they'll finally make it right.
"Dune" was really not lucky so far. Lynch's version was not bad, all things considered, up until the last few minutes. When they screwed up everything. Because, seriously - rain?... Makes me go "WTF???" every time I'm watching it.
The SciFi version?... I don't even have the words. It was more than bad. It was hideous. Staring with acting and ending with the costumes. *shudders* Let's forget it even exists.
This is really amazing book (the whole Dune-verse is) and one of my all-time favorites. I want someone to finally do it's justice. I mean, it's not more difficult that "LOTR" and I happen to think that Peter Jackson did really good job.
I'm a pessimist, so I'll always expect the worse. But I'm really tired of cringing, while watching movies based on the books I love.
