Another Article On The Upcoming Big Screen Adaptation Of DUNE

Expect me to share any and all news I read about this production. I am so impressed with all the latest casting choices that have been announced this month. I am convinced this is a very serious attempt to make the movie epic that the source material demands.

Audiences have been trained over the last decade to appreciate adaptations of famously complicated and multi-layered works like Marvel’s Cinematic Universe, J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings, and George R.R. Martin’s Game of Thrones, and in many ways, Dune — with its sprawling network of books authored by Herbert, and later, by Brian Herbert and Kevin J. Anderson — is the ideal extended universe for a comparable franchise. Having a stellar cast will be doubly important for a work like Dune, because the entire weight of this famously dense and complicated story of a power struggle between families in a feudal galaxy — and the potential of a greater multimedia franchise — will rest on the shoulders of whomever Villeneuve brings in.

I hope they don't go overboard with the Stillsuits. I thought they looked great in the first movie. Utilitarian, practical, like it would be. Not like a superhero suit.

I agree. They have to look worked in like in the movie but they do need somekind of face covering even though movies like to show off their actor's faces.
