It's been a bumpy road for Paramount's adaptation of Dune. The studio hired director Peter Berg to helm the project in 2008, planning a more "faithful" adaptation than the 1984 version that was directed by David Lynch. Berg praised Josh Zetumer's script, calling it a "massive epic" with "franchise potential," and then, a month later, promptly quit the project.
Taken director Pierre Morel then took over, announcing that he would do away with the script from Berg's era of production, opting instead to start over in what Morel hoped would be a 3-D adaptation. With the project seemingly progressing, the latest problem could postpone the movie indefinitely. Morel will no longer direct >> Posted 11.10.10 by Ryan
