Sounds like they're trying to cash in on some of The Handmaid's Tale popularity.
Sorta want to see.
As to the above mentioned duo... yes, their stuff sucks, but you have to consider also that the original Dune series was of...um... descending quality starting with Dune itself (which is a masterpiece) and ending with Chapterhouse Dune (barely readable).
WIll this sisterhood be searching for some traveling pants?
Tbh: I loved Dune, but also loved all the Frank Herbert written books that followed.
Pinky and the Brain gotta go!
Indeed. Heretics and Chapterhouse especially aren't that good at all.
I know people give BH and KJA a lot of crap, but Frank Herbert himself pretty much just shat out the last two Dune books he made, and honestly I found the NH/KJA stuff mixed, but some of it was pretty good (the side-quel books with Young Paul/etc being my favorite). I'd take stuff they're involved in over the weirdly sexual shit in Heretics of Dune and Chapterhouse Dune. Hell, I'd say the worst stuff in the BH/KJA Dune sequel books was the stuff they had to continue from Frank herbert's work (although he can't take the blame for those boring as hell prequels set 10,000 years or whatever before Dune, those were pretty much just BH/KJA fault as far as I'm aware).
Anyway, I don't have a lot of faith in this series in general, but its at least an interesting development, and those two being involved isn't one of the factors going against it for me.
It probably means they're getting a check. I'd be more concerned about the writers and showrunners.
Isn't it kind of weird how Frank's long-lost notes somehow completely misunderstood the ending of Chapterhouse?
The universe can be a strange place sometimes!
Interesting development in feeling that it's going to try and bridge the divide between the movie-spectacle and serialised television audiences.
Imagine if Lynch had been given the 'Twin Peaks-as-Dune' option back then . Or maybe not. Though you could tweak the cast:
Bobby Briggs as Paul
Agent Cooper as Duke Leto
Shelly as Irulan
Donna or Audrey as Chani
Kat Martell as Mohiam
Leland as Harkonnen
Jacoby as Yueh
