Another Dune Storybook Come Up For Auction


Often described as the greatest movie that was never made, Alejandro Jodorowsky’s Dune was slated to become one of the greatest cinematic feats in history. The 15-hour space epic would feature Orson Welles (Citizen Kane) as Baron Harkonnen, Salvador Dalí as the emperor, Shaddam IV, and an accompanying soundtrack by Pink Floyd. But the project ran out of funding before it could see the light of day. Now, Christie’s is auctioning off the storyboard for the ill-fated film. The storyboard – that Frank Herbert once described as “the size of a phonebook” – is one of 10 copies and is estimated to sell between €25,000 EUR and €35,000 EUR ($29,000 USD and $40,000 USD).
