I'm not necessarily referring to people involved
with the production.
Quite a bit of news in the internet era comes from outside/unofficial/amateur sources. It's pretty much the reason why a social retard like Harry Knowles can get a billion hits per month without ever going outside.
Also, jumping tracks a bit, there's simply no way
a "look at me!" gadfly like TheKJA would be able to keep himself from Twatting/blogging/whatever if there was any news to report. He wouldn't be able to help himself. I take his silence on the subject to have some meaning.
It looks like we'll just disagree on this one. I see no indication at all that Dune (20-whatever)
is moving forward. Of course, now that I'm on record, there's sure to be a press release coming out later this week ...
