hey 'rider, we'll give you honourable mention when someday they have a hearing that declares the HLP's actions criminal and them unfit to manage the affairs of Dune.

You mean we get to go hiking all the time and let monkeys write our books ? :P

And we can burn the unbeliever's on a pyre of their own books in admiration of the God Emperor! :twisted:

Send the violence of the Sun
Down upon their heads
Let searing torrents of fire
Descend upon their brow
Let flames immolate their places of sleeping

Uh... no! We simply have them read Dune and kill them if they wrinkle their foreheads in confusion during the first chapter.

Don't worry, GP, at least the picture isn't too scarring.

Be thankful it's just visual. I imagine the olfactory channel is the killer. :shock:

anybody know anything about DUNE ENTERTAINMENT?
They seem to be THE source for hollywoods scifi sub-crap in the last few years.
anybody know if there is a herbert family association here?

I hope not, but since I dont know I have this lingering wonder... from what I can tell; these guys have been around since 2006. If i recall correctly 2006 or so is when these rumblings about the new Dune movie started.

Doesn't appear to be an HLP thing. The HLP seems pretty greedy, and I don't know that they could come up with the amount of money that encyclopedia article attributes to them. But I looked at the CA Department of State website. It says that Dune Entertainment is a Delaware registered corporation that is certified to do business in CA. I was not able to get a list of principals off of the Delaware website. It says I was ten minutes too late and wont be available again until Monday.

This article says that Dune Entertainment is a subsidiary of something called Dune Capital Management. That company seems to be a hedge fund manager that operates in the U.S. and Europe. Its privately owned so there is no corporate paper I could find out there, but I imagine that it is regulated by the SEC. I don't know how those things are handled, so Im not sure where to look to find out.

I did a litigation search too and I also see something called "Dune Entertainment II," which appears to be another subsidiary of Dune Capital Management, though I cant confirm. They have been sued a LOT.

Dune Capital Management's phone number is 212-301-8400. If someone were to call, I doubt that Bryan would pick up.

that was a way-more indepth investigation than id hoped for... you dont happen to work for maury povich, do you?

good to know though. id hate to think that some of the money made from the original novels might have gone to fund the production of gems like ALIEN VS. PREDATOR: REQUIEM, ERAGON, X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE, and MAX PAYNE.
