I loved the original Dune and Children of Dune as both were excellent sci-fi mini-series that kept me captivated throughout. In fact, I enjoyed then that much I shall get out the DVDs and spend the afternoon in front of the TV... and why not, it's Sunday.
Having said that, I do like the idea of somebody picking up the ball on this remake idea, given all the advances in cinematography that could really open up the entire project to encompass anything the imagination can produce, especially if HR Giger is involved in set and creature design and production, as he was in the first 2 series. I have admired his art and imagination since like forever, so here's hoping it gets to go ahead.
Orright, so who do we petition for something like this???... and if EVERY Stardock member signed it, as well as all their friends and family, we might actually have something going here.
