Dune

So, not only is Dune getting remade. It's being directed by Denis Villeneuve, you know, the mastermind behind movies like Enemy, Sicario and Arrival. It's also being penned by Eric Roth. If that name doesn't ring a bell, he wrote Forrest Gump and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. 

I'm really looking forward to this project. Normally I avoid remake/reboots/whatever, but the first got ruined and I still think it's a shame we never got to see Jodorowsky's Dune. Luckily, we have the documentary as comfort. Something I'm sure @Minos appreciates, seeing his taste in movies. 

This is not from the movie, but I love this piece of art.

Awesome! Curious to see if they are making a trilogy out of the first book, or if they will try to fit everything in one movie.

I highly recommend the book, it's a loooong haul but totally worth it. I've been reading it for months now and I still have about 20% to go lol. I'm learning so much from it that I usually read a chapter and meditate on the concepts for weeks, just to make sure I fully grasped everything. This a powerful book and the useful bits will be probably lost in the movie translation, or can't even be fitted in a movie to begin with! No wonder Jodorowsky wanted his version to be 12 hours long :lol::lol:

The audible audiobook is stellar too, probably the best production values I have ever seen in an audiobook. I started with that one but it was kind of hard to understand what the fuck they were talking about a lot of the times, because of all the new terminology Frank Herbert created for the book. But my plan is to go over it once I'm done with the book :)

Nice man! You mean the first book? I loved reading that a few years ago. Might give it another go soon.

The sequels are really interesting too, but they kinda lost a lot of what made the first book so great. Still worth a read imo.

Dune is definitely one of the better book series ive read. Not to circle jerk it, it does have deep philosophical ways of thinking embedded into the writing, but It can be a little wordy at times.

Yeah first book :) I hear the second book has a lot of dialogue and too little action? I might just pick the audiobook for the other ones.

 

In regards to the other books in the Frank's 6 Dune Books, Messiah(2nd book) is remarkably different in terms of pacing and style of story telling. 
While the first book "Dune" takes place over the time span of 2 years(or 3 I dont remember exactly), the 2nd book takes over just a few months, and is at a time of "peace" per say, and is much more introspective thinking with the characters and much more political.
