James McAvoy can't play Paul Atreides. He's already played Leto II.

Shaddam - Val Kilmer [the one good thing out of Alexander, the movie]

Paul    - Shia LeBeouf

Leto    - Antonio Banderas

Jessica - Wynona Ryder

Mohiam  - Sigourney Weaver [o yeah, got the Alien:Resurrection thing going]

Vlad Harkonnen - Ian McKellan

Feyd Harkonnen - Rob Patterson

Yueh    - BD Wong

Chani  - Jessica Alba

DeVries - Brad Doruif [Alien 4!]

I'm definitely going to see the new movie, if it ever comes out.

My first hope is that it's going to be a decent movie on it's own. I've recomended to several of my friends that they read Dune and lended out my copy more than once, but nobody actually bothers to read it. It would probably be much easier to get people to see a movie, after wich I can always recommend the book.

My second hope is that it stays reasonably close to the book, though I realize that a lot will have to be cut. The miniseries was okay in that respect, allthough it also added some irrelevant and unnecessary subplots.

So far, I've never had the chance to discuss Dune with someone in real life despite the fact that it's supposedly the best-selling SF novel in history.
