    TBH, I hope they follow the book and don't actually show the Guild Navigator in this one.

    Also eagerly looking forward to learning who's gonna play Duncan, Stilgar, Thufir, Gurney, and Yueh! Irulan, Pieter, & Count Fenring will also be interesting. Oh! And Liet-Kynes! So many awesome characters! :D

    Oh, an a navigator is described in Dune Messiah so I don't see any reason not too show one in Dune; and the films are visual media which benefits from visual storytelling including showing the mystery of the navigators rather than hinting to them. Will be very cool to see Villeneuve's interpretation of a Spacing Guild navigator! :)

    Wow! There's a level of insanity at play here with all this awesomeness! The good kind of insanity that Dune deserves :) I wonder whether someone signed a blank check for the budget 'cause this is gearing up to be an expensive cast :-D

    The popularity of the source material is far from overated, it's just that from all the books ever writen, Dune is the most dificult to be made into a movie , it's too complex, too much inner dialogue, that simply can't be projected in to the movie and without it you risk to end up with a "John Carter" kind of movie.
    That been said, the cast looks ... fabulous, i don't expect too much from this but my curiosity has been captured.

    Josh Brolin is on as Gurney! <3 this CAST


    Have you seen other Villeneuve films? There's much more going for this than the cast. He has an amazing sci-fi sensibility and he conveys complex ideas with skill.

    Yes and I agree, still, the task he's facing is .. huuuge ; of course i hope he knocks it out of the park.

    ps: Josh Brolin wow, this cast is perfectly balanced, like all 'casts' should be :p .

    The train of uber talented actors had to end at some point.
    Mamoa is in talks now.

    He's made for any role that doesn't require too much dramatic work

    Apples and oranges. Star Wars is a film, a space fantasy fairy tale with little emphasis on word building. Dune is a novel, a hard sci-fi epic and an absolute master class of world building (not to mention itself an influence of Star Wars).

    Both are great. I would say that if we're comparing books, Dune is an order of magnitude better than even the best Star Wars novel. Other than that, no need for competition.

    He might, although I can't quite see it for some reason. Perhaps he's too charming to be Feyd. My money is on Duncan Idaho; he'd be perfect as Paul's substitute big brother & swordmaster champion :D The more I think about it the more I see Mamoa as Duncan!

    Lol! Dude, Dune is a far superior piece of writing, worldbuilding, drama, and characterization than Star Wars (although TLJ takes some strong steps in that direction). It is, however, also a much 'heavier' and not as accessible.

    Of course, if you're talking money-wise, then I suspect you're quite right in that Dune won't beat SW as a franchise at the box office, or even individual big movies like SW Ep.IX.

    My your blade chip and shatter :p
