    Well, at least he's passionate about it. That's a good sign.
    Paul of Dune was so bad it gave me a seizure that dislocated both of my shoulders and prolapsed my anus.

    It is indeed. I saw Arrival a couple of weeks ago, and if that's anything to go by, Denis Villeneuve just might have the sensibility to make a halfway decent adaptation.

    Well, the powers that be seem to have taken notice of his fandom: „Sources tell Variety that Villeneuve is in early talks to direct Legendary’s “Dune” reboot for the company. Legendary has not commented on the news” (Full article here: http://variety.com/2016/film/news/denis-villeneuve-dune-reboot-legendary-pictures-1201929280/)

    I have not seen Arrival yet, but I did see Prisoners and Sicario, and this here is a really talented director, and still on the rise, mind you. His movies so far, IMHO, show he can deliver great storytelling, great atmosphere, and he surrounds himself with top notch talent.

    So, yeah, Involvement of the HLP aside, I would be really excited if Villeneuve were to helm a new Dune film.
    Like I said before, I never repeat myself.

    More Dune related material on the screen would definitely be encouraging for me to re-read the Dune books. What would be better would be a new Dune computer/video game.

    And that's my yearly post for this forum.
