Peter Berg was originally attached as the film’s director, but left the project to film Universal’s upcoming “Battleship”. After Berg left, Pierre Morel signed on to direct the film but he also left the project to direct the upcoming film “Earth Defense Force”. After Morel left the project, no one had signed on to direct the remake and the project went nowhere.
It looks as though the “Dune” remake is dead for the moment. “Dune” fans still have the David Lynch movie to watch, the Sci-Fi (now SyFy) original mini-series “Frank Herbert’s Dune” and it’s sequel “Frank Herbert’s Children of Dune” to watch in the meantime.
