Dune Who’s directing the remake?

Some people don’t like the first Dune by David Lynch, but of course, they’re crazy. With a stunning cast like the effortless Kyle MacLachlan, badass Sting, the mysterious Jürgen Prochnow, the black-goop-dripping Kenneth McMillan, the incomparable Linda Hunt as Shadout Mapes…coupled with the as-cool-and-strange-as-it-gets-for-1984 effects, not to mention the storyline itself… come on, it rocks!

So when we all heard that Paramount was making another Dune, the two camps thought either “let’s get it right this time” or “don’t screw it up again!”. According to Film Junk, Peter Berg (Hancock, Friday Night Lights) was the first director linked to the project back in 2008. Now it seems he’s walked away and in his place is rumoured to be either Neill Blomkamp (District 9) or Neil Marshall (The Descent). District 9 was fresh, tense, funny and tragic with acting by Sharlto Copley that blew my socks off so securing Blomkamp would be sweet. The Descent was “okay” with relatively successful moments of intense claustrophobia-enducing cave exploring coupled with pale, mutated, subhuman, bloodsucking monsters, but people are whispering that Marshall, who’s film Doomsday received mixed reviews, might not be up to the task.

There’s also the rumour going around that Robert Pattinson will play the lead in the movie… I’ll just let you marinate in that one…
