Dune

It was announced today that Denis Villeneuve (Sicario, Arrival, Blade Runner 2049) has signed up to direct the new adaptation of Frank Herbert’s science fiction epic Dune. As good excuse as any to revisit the incredible concept art for Alejandro Jodorowsky's aborted 1970s version, by the likes of Jean “Moebius” Giraud, HR “NSFW” Giger and Chris “say, what do you reckon Rod Stewart would look like if he was a spaceship?” Foss. It's a shame none of this made its way onto the big screen (aside from Giger’s design for Harkonnen Castle, which appeared in Prometheus for some reason), so it'll be interesting to see if Villeneuve draws upon any of it for his new version, of if a similarly strong pedigree of contemporary concept artists can be corralled.
