Dune Details Too Epic To Start Filming Just Yet

Director Peter Berg has been filling the world in on his highly anticipated Dune adaptation. What's he got planned for his take on the movie is, he explains, something more "muscular" than Lynch's former film translation.

In an interview with SciFi Wire, Berg explained that te script isn't finished yet because they're working on making it much more epic than ever before. At least, that's what I take from this quote...

"[The book] was much more muscular and adventurous, more violent and possibly even a little bit more fun... I think those are all elements of my experience of the book that can be brought in without offending the die-hard fans of the Bene Gesserit and Kwisatz Haderach. There's a more dynamic film to be made."


Well, Lynch did have a half naked Sting. That was pretty muscular for me, but I think I understand what he's saying. Dune is one of those books where everyone has their version of the spice planet, and we're looking forward to Berg's.
