A New “Dune” Adaptation?

It came to my attention last week that Legendary Entertainment, the studio behind movies like The Dark Knight and Pacific Rim, has acquired the film rights to Frank Herbert’s Dune. Granted, there have been no announcements as to whether or not there will be a new movie, but if you have the film rights for a book, you must want to make something, right?

I can only hope it doesn’t mutilate the story a la the 1984 version. That was such a disappointment. I do remember that Syfy (back in the days when it was still the SciFi Channel) turned DuneDune Messiah, and Children of Dune into a miniseries. I never saw the Dune Messiah or Children of Dune parts, but the parts that dealt specifically with Dune were actually pretty good. I think on the whole Dune works better as a miniseries, so perhaps Legendary Entertainment will take that route with their new adaptation.
