‘Dune’ movie remake starting fresh


I’m such a huge fan of the David Lynch 1984 version, despite its dalliances into plot areas unknown. And I wasn’t eager to watch the William Hurt Sci-Fi channel version. Paramount’s retelling is up now, and they’ve sacked a director, the obligatory 3-D talk has set in, and wunks are rewriting the script again. Hollywood babble follows:

“We’re starting from scratch,” said Morel. “Peter had an approach which was not mine at all, and we’re starting over again. I don’t think we’re going to keep any elements of the Peter Berg script. It was good, actually. It was interesting. It was just not our vision. I can’t tell you right now [who’s writing it with me], it’s going to be official next week. The deals are not done!”
