Maybe, but taking acid is not necessarily the thing to do for that, not everyone is cut out to deal with it.
Come on, the Emperor a double being shitting in a golden toilet? (from memory)
I for myself think that it is possible, the question is that the money necessary to pull something like that off is also the main obstacle, since the underlying message is not really what the big money studios usually go for. ("what? The hero's not a hero and they do drugs to live longer?No way man, no way...")

As I see it, anything can be translated.

Lynch was fine as it was, I mean to me it always became the visual of Dune the way I imagined it.

This more than anything is its redeeming quality in my eyes.
But J's Dune should it have come to be, would just have lost that.
Movies' main advantage being visuals, if your visuals stray too much from what is written than you lose your best trump card.
