The item you are discussing is not in the first book. It happens early in the 2nd. It isn't in the David Lynch movie either. But it does happened in the Sci-Fi mini series from the 2000s but that has things from the first 3 books and is why you may be thinking of it.
that sci-fi series is one of the only DVDs i still own.

I own it as well. I like it because it gets the story more correct than Lynch's version and you have the other books, but I always find it funny when the Harkonen's attach the exact same way 3 times. It was just way low budget. What I really want is the Lynch' 3 plus hour version ( not the theatrical version) on DVD. Have never found it.

Speaking of this I think I need to go change my username to something more appropriate for this thread. Haven't done that in a LONG time.

I thought I would have commented on this before now but I guess I didn't. One of the biggest plot points missing from the original movie was Duncan Idaho as a golem.

Really curious if this will make the two film series.
Do you mean "golem" or ghola?


Ghola was the evolution of the Jewish Golem....it is actually the (((bene tleilax))) #redpilled





In case it has to be said this was sarcasm

My name isn't Shirley /Drax

but yeah that is the most logical choice for his character, but it could be Baron Harkonnen. I just think the Beast would be such a small part of the story for someone like Bautista but maybe they will expand his role.

Dave Bautista:

Marvel franchise hero
Bond villain
Blade Runner sequel
Dune series

This dude is having a charmed career.

Raban has a huge role in the interim period when the book takes a bit of a time jump, terrorizing the local population when the Harkonnen retake Arrakis. I can see that being put on screen.

Stellan Skarsgard cast as Baron Harkonnen. Great cast on this movie.

Have the only characters that have been cast are Paul, Lady Jessica, the Baron, and Beast?

I still want Patrick Stewart as Gurney but that is a pipe dream.

Good choice for the "floating fat man"

Not to steal too many from the Harry Potter ranks but how about Brendan Gleeson and David Thewlis for the competing House mentats?

Gurney should be pretty easy to fill... a hardened, experienced man with compassion that could survive the desert for many years and then still probably kick your ass:

From the Scottish line of actors alone:
  • Iain Glen


  • Gerard Butler


  • Tommy Flanagan


  • Henry Ian Cusick


  • Graham McTavish

A little, but mostly Paul is just highly skilled, trained, and fast.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson, how about this guy for Stilgar...he impressed me in Outlaw King on Netflix (Black Douglas)

God he'd be perfect. The audience would immediately know he's a stuckup, twisted, twit but deadly. And hate him.

About 2/3 done with the first read through of the first book. It's about a million times better than the travesty that was the movie.

Joffrey would be a terrible choice for Feyd Rautha. Rose Leslie would be like "you know nothing Usul, now tell me of the waters of your homeworld."

Exactly, and pictures of her with short hair or hair in a bun...she could be a Fremen warrior/seductress.

I'd say this all but confirms a summer 2020 release...

I couldn't help but picture a Dune movie shot like the desert scene in Blade Runner 2049. These fierce blue eyes piercing out of the haze.

Would have poked Charlotte Rampling with my mega sized gom jabbar when she was in her prime. I'd have hoped that she IS/WAS actually an animal though.

Have her screaming "Kwisatz Haderach!!!" And "Fear is the Mind Killer!!!" ?

This gives new meaning to, "you'll feel a burning sensation there" (when you pee)..."flesh searing"

The pain...
