Director David Lynch directed the 1984 film Dune: The Desert Planet. However, he is disappointed with his own work and has no interest in watching the new film version of Denis Villeneuve.
The first film adaptation of the novel appeared in 1984 Dune: The desert planet, written by Frank Herbert. However, the film is very controversial among fans. Director David Lynch never seems to have really recovered from this experience, because he now explains that he is not interested in watching the remake of Denis Villeneuve.
Not interested in the new Dune
"I'm not interested in" Dune "… because the film caused me grief. It was a failure and I didn't have a final cut. I've told this story billions of times. It's not the film I wanted to make. I likes certain parts of it very much – but it was a total failure for me. "
He further explains that at the moment he is simply more interested in TV projects: "At the moment, in my opinion, feature films are in great difficulty, with the exception of the big blockbusters. The arthouse films have no chance. They may run for one week in one Cinema and if it is a cineplex, they only run in the smallest hall and come out directly on Blu-ray or video-on-demand. The cinema experience is now gone. Away but not forgotten. I love an ongoing story Real and cable TV is the new art house. You have complete freedom. The sound is not as good as in a great cinema. The picture is not that big – but TVs are getting bigger and better, so there is hope. And then you have you have a chance of an ongoing story, so it's the new art house, I say. "
The remake of Dune should come to the cinema at the end of the year, if there are no shifts due to the Corona crisis.
