Peter Berg Isn't Done with Dune

Director Peter Berg (Hancock) is still set on shooting a remake of Dune, despite the disaster of David Lynch’s bomb and the mediocre miniseries Syfy did in 2000. Does Berg have what it takes to adapt this seemingly inadaptable film?

You have to give the man credit: he’s a hard worker and he doesn’t give up easily. Scifiwire reports that he’s busy working on an ESPN Wayne Gretzky documentary, as well as the next season of Friday Night Lights.

As for the prospects of a forthcoming Dune movie, Berg notes that he needs a script that’s ready to go, and that he wants it to have more adventure than Lynch’s film:

[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.

I think most fans will be happy so long as there are lots of sand worms, and as long as Sting doesn’t get cast again. I mean, come on – give Elton John a chance.
