So many feels going on in this one, but I totally understand why this movie couldn’t get made. I wonder if Villeneuve will use any of the concepts and ideas from this… I’m sure he’s seen the “DUNE book”, that massive tome of storyboards and artwork (hell, I’d like to see it!)
I highly doubt he will, and I don’t think he should either. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love to see Jodorowsky’s version finished in some manner, maybe as an animated film like he suggested in the doc, but having read the original novel I get why the whole thing rubs people the wrong way. Jodorowsky’s Dune would have been his version of Dune, and had little to nothing to do with the Herbert’s novel other than a few names and core plot-points. So I hope Villeneuve manages to make the definitive faithful adaptation, and maybe at some later point the Jodorowsky version can finally be made as an alternate interpretation.
