Peter Berg Talks Dune

frankherbertsdune-080609Director Peter Berg discussed his in development film based on Frank Herbert’s classic sci-fi novel Dune

“I think I had a much more different experience, I think, with the book than David Lynch did,” Berg told SCI FI Wire in an interview at last week’s Television Critics Association summer press tour in Pasadena, Calif. “To me, I think my interpretation will feel significantly different from that and the [Syfy] Channel miniseries that aired. I have a different experience than both of those filmmakers did.”

While Lynch’s film focused on the politics and feuding between the houses in the novel, Berg would like to tell the story as more of an epic adventure:

“[The book] was much more muscular and adventurous, more violent and possibly even a little bit more fun,” Berg said. “I think those are all elements of my experience of the book that can be brought in without offending the die-hard fans of the Bene Gesserit and Kwisatz Haderach. There’s a more dynamic film to be made.”
