While on a whirlwind trip to LA, Robert Pattinson met with Peter Burg
. This got us Twilight junkies
speculating about "what the heck for"? Well Peter Burg is working on remaking the 1980's sci -fi movie hit Dune. Haven't seen it? It's awesome.
A more thorough and straightforward adaptation of Frank Herbert's beloved sci-fi novel than the 1984 David Lynch version, this six-hour Sci Fi Channel miniseries, written and directed by John Harrison, follows the Atreides family's adventures on the desert planet Arrakis. Far into the future, various factions fight for the valuable melange spice that exists exclusively on Arrakis and is protected by fierce, gigantic sandworms. While the indigenous, blue-eyed Arrakisians wait for their Messiah to free them from the corrupt Harkonnens, the family Atreides endures infighting and political intrigue. This sprawling and reverent production features a cast that includes William Hurt, Giancarlo Giannini, Alec Newman, Julie Cox, and Matt Keeslar.
Here are some pics from the movie that are pretty cool.
