Though Picard could probably still pull it off again.

Picard is both amused and flattered that you find him pretty.

For an EPIC Dune film???

A combination of Ron Fricke and Zach Snyder for cinematography, David Fincher, Frank Miller, Darren Aronofsky, and Terrence Malick as directors, and a miraculous score composed by the combined methods of Philip Glass, Clint Mansell, Michael Stearns and Alexandre Desplat with heavy emphasis on the original film's Director's Cut, at times implementing the Chronos Quartet for that eery scraping scratching of the violins, and utilizing that wind up to the chaos for slower, ominous, forboding parts adapted from Frank Herbet's novel.

I think Elijah Wood would be the best pick for Paul Atreides. He begins as a very small young boy, very much like Elijah Wood in physicality. And for The Beast Rabban!? TOM HARDY!!!

And for his Harkonen Antagonist, the Bane of the Kwisatz Haderach?? Ohhh, tough one. I'll have to think. Feyd Harkonen has to be good looking like a gorgeous boy, but crazy, animalistic, hostile, makes you uneasy. A lean mean machine like Brad Pitt in Fight Club. I just can't think of a better person for Feyd Rautha than Brad Pitt.

After you're done paying those 10 people, you'd have about 30-35% of your budget left for your movie. Actors, settings, SFX, crew etc. etc. etc. Also, four directors? Sounds like a conflict in the making. I'd go with Peter Jackson myself.

Tom Hardy would need to bulk and fatten himself out. He might be too old. Overall not a terrible cast though.

Brad Pitt is going on 50, he's way too old to play Feyd. I'd use Charlie Hunnam for Feyd.

That I'd agree with. thumb up

No, the idea of a director and cinematographer is they have to make their own film themselves. I meant as in one or two of these directors, their style. Obviously the money won't allow 4 major directors. I'd have to do some research, watch some films to choose less of them.

These directors represent the overall direction I'd like from an adaptation, as do the actors, the composers, as well as the cinematrographers, who really put it all into appealing to the senses, which is why I prefer film form over book form in the first place.

David Fincher is definately the one I would pick for Dune first.

Why H.R. Giger for Dune? He's known for his techno-organic style.

I can't imagine seeing Elijah Wood fighting like Paul.

He's the size of a little kid.

That's the thing. Real life situations don't always go to the stronger or faster person. The thing about Dune is that they rely on superhuman perception, senses, and thinking processes to overcome situations in which they lack strength or speed in a knife fight.

In the book Paul is smaller than Feyd, marginally, by Frank Herbert's description. Yet he wins the battle. That is what makes the Kwisatz Haderach so neat.

In Sin City Elijah's character Kevin is described as a killer born, for Marv, a huge man, he was too quite, too quick.

Why are you telling me this?

You don't like my opinion, and I honestly don't give a shit.

If you haven't already, make your own ****ing list.

Elijah Wood might be better off playing Paul in the beginning, because he does have a chipmunk voice, I actually think it'd be better if they switched actors to, actually Henry Cavill....who I could definately see as an adult Muad'dib.

The problem is, I don't see him as a 15 year-old either. In the original Dune film there was a long time spent narrated, that could be like a "years later" type thing.

Elijah Wood is 32; Henry Cavill is 29.

What I am saying is, I don't see 32(will be older when they start filming) year old Elijah Wood playing child/young adult Paul Atreides.
