Paramount dropping Dune + Doug Liman’s Moon project heats up + World War Z in danger of cancellation

After four years, Paramount Pictures has ended their plans to develop a new new movie based on the novel series Dune. Paramount allowed their rights to the property to lapse. Here’s what Richard P. Rubinstein, who controls the rights said about the news [via Deadline]:

“I’m going to look at my options, and whether I wind up taking the script we developed in turnaround, or start over, I’m not sure yet.”

Meanwhile Heat Vision | THR is reporting that Doug Liman’s Untitled Moon Project (formerly “Luna”) is picking up steam at Paramount:

The story centers on a renegade group of former space employees, led by an Eastern European woman, who travel the world, stealing space equipment in an attempt to go back to the moon to acquire an energy source. The last item to steal — or in this case, kidnap — is an ex-NASA employee.

Liman is said to have already had meetings with several Hollywood actors for the two main male and female roles. Actresses include Rosario Dawson, Megan Fox, Rachel McAdams, Eva Mendes, Zoe Saldana and Olivia Wilde. Actors include Andrew Garfield, Emile Hirsch and Chris Pine.
