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. http://www.dune-entertainment.com/http://www.encyclopedia.com/doc/1G1-141493908.html
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.
