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.

In my opinion, the miniseries focused too much on the major plotlines and main characters, with everything and everyone else fading into the background. Most of the secondary characters, with the notable exception of Dr. Kynes, were just too plain and uninteresting. With all its deviations from the book and lots of scenes that were cut, Lynch's movie is far better than the miniseries IMO.

I think they made him into the Emperor's Mentat of sorts. Another weird change was making Irulan travel to Giedi Prime to gather some information. Guess they wanted to give her a bigger role in the series, but the outcome was just meh.

Think they forgot that it was Margot Fenring that "visited" Feyd-Rautha.

That didn't bother me much, personally. I rather like the Fenring character from the novel though and I feel that the miniseries butchered him.

one of the reasons why I'd prefer the movie never happened. Besides I don't think they will be able to make it any better than Lynch's.

Still, on the whole I like the series.

The miniseries butchered him?!  Have you read the new novels?  THAT is character assasination.

Any info about this? Is this project still alive or is it back in development hell? IMDb states it for 2014 release, but since 2013 is almost upon us and there's been second to none information... well it doesn't look too good. The latest piece of info I dug out is this web page:  http://janeiris.hubpages.com/hub/Dune-Movie-to-Watch-Out-For# but who knows how accurate the info is...
