Berg to remake Dune

MTV reports that The Kingdom director Peter Berg is set to direct a new big-screen version of Frank Herbert’s sci-fi novel Dune.

Berg said that the film would have been his next project, but the US writers’ strike is preventing the film from moving forward through development.

According to Berg, the David Lynch version “left the door wide open for a remake.”

A gob smacking science fiction epic, Frank Herbert’s Hugo and nebula award-winning Dune, first published in 1965, is set on the desert planet Arrakis. The story of the boy Paul Atreides, Dune sees him become the mysterious man known as Muad’Dib and avenge the traitorous plot against his noble family, and bring to fruition humankind’s most ancient and unattainable dream.
