“Taken” director, Pierre Morel, is set to direct the new version of “Dune”, based on the legendary sci-fi novel written by Frank Herbert. This would be the third remake of “Dune”, the first being directed by David Lynch and the second was a direct-to-TV version by John Harrison for the Sy-Fy channel.

They’re probably gonna turn this version into a big time special effects action movie like all the others. I love the David Lynch version of “Dune”, that film was a classic. Hope they don’t screw this one up.
