Burbank, CA – November 21, 2016 – Legendary and the Frank Herbert estate have reached an agreement granting the production entity the film and television motion picture rights to the beloved novel DUNE, one of the most revered science fiction novels of all time. The agreement calls for the development and production of possible film and television projects for a global audience. The projects would be produced by Thomas Tull, Mary Parent and Cale Boyter, with Brian Herbert, Byron Merritt and Kim Herbert serving as executive producers.
Check out chapter one of NAVIGATORS OF DUNE here:
All things begin, and all things end—there are no exceptions.
Or, is this a myth?

The Emperor’s ceremonial barge orbited high above Salusa Secundus, in the midst of huge, ominous warships. Its interior glittered with gold and precious gems; its flashy hull was sculpted with curves and adornments that served no purpose. By far the most ostentatious vessel in the fleet, the barge was a stunning sight to those who were easily swayed by such things. Salvador had adored it.
Brian Herbert will be doing a podcast with THE DUNE SAGA. Listen in!

Amazing still images and great information. Some of this looks like it's from Jodorowsky's Dune, though.

Have you seen Dune? Do you think modern sci-fi would be different if it had been a hit? Am I being too harsh on modern sci-fi in general?

Today -- October 8th -- is Frank Herbert's birthday. Had the master storyteller still been alive, he would've been 89 years old today.
Frank was born in Tacoma, Washington and passed away on February 11, 1986 after losing his battle with pancreatic cancer.
This year was the first time I attended DragonCon, and what an experience! The staff there really know what the phrase "southern hospitality" means. Everyone was kind, informative, and handled my questions perfectly. The great thing about this event was that there were tons of resources for fans and guests alike. Information booths, guest services, a flood of volunteers, all made this a really fun event. Next year, I hope to attend again and experience more of what this amazing Con has to offer.
