I did not think this would happen.  I had thought that the Sci-Fi Channel heresy had doomed any possible remakes for at least 20 years, maybe more.  I was wrong.  I was sweetly, gloriously wrong.

Paramount has greenlit a big (apparently VERY big)  budget remake of Dune apparently to be directed by Peter Berg.  I'm not tremendously familiar with Berg, but he says that he's been given almost complete control financially and will be producing a faithful adaptation of the book, more faithful than the Lynch heresy or the Sci-Fi Channel heresy that he agrees were inadequate.  He says he's a fan of the book.  He says he's going to do it right.  I want to believe him.  It's failed twice so there's PLENTY out there to tell Berg how not to make the film.

This news pleases me.......

IT PLEASES ME

I should immediately write Berg a letter dictating how the film should be done.  It should be split into three parts and done LITERALLY and word for word.  The budget should be $600 million.  I should design costumes.
