The TV version was excellent. Why the fuck are they doing it again?!!!
Are they gonna keep on remaking it every 10-15 years or something? :-/
but this news is weird because yesterday, completely without reason, I changed my facebook status to 'you must teach us the weirding way, Maud'Dib'
hated david lynchs version, and it was widely thought of as a failure. while i really enjoyed that film, the difference in the book and the movie is vast, hence the need for a remake.
but it's not really like the book. That said, I don't think another version is going to really add anything worthwhile to the series, and probably won't be that good either.
I haven't seen the TV series and gave up on the books after losing my suspension of disbelief during Leto's parts of Children of Dune.
