SCI FI Wire chatted with director Peter Berg about his planned adaptation of the Frank Herbert classic, Dune. “Dune” spawned five sequels written by Herbert, and inspired a 1984 film adaptation by David Lynch, and in 2000 two mini-series made by the SCI FI Channel. Here’s a clip:

Berg sees the story more as an epic adventure. “[The book] was much more muscular and adventurous, more violent and possibly even a little bit more fun,” Berg said. “I think those are all elements of my experience of the book that can be brought in without offending the die-hard fans of the Bene Gesserit and Kwisatz Haderach. There’s a more dynamic film to be made.”
